I was thinking that regarding the speakers. I had an original pair of EB1's a number of years ago and I can honestly say that Cubettes/Cube 3's will wipe the floor with them.

I had a pair of Dynaudio Emit 10s which were good, but they were blown away by Cube 3s. Cubettes also sound better.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Decided on the A40's, P90sa ,LS5 and Cube 3's. All plugged in and settling in nicely. Will be giving it some serious listening to over the next 3 days ( trying to work from home). A Friend is borrowing the AP30 and is already smitten.
