Audio Hi-Fi Boost - Thoughts
14 Dec 2017 20:50 #2562
I've been learning tremendously from you. Thank you for that.
I gave up my bose plans and got my initial 5.1.2 set up as follows:
AV receiver Onkyo RZ-TX 820
klipsch R-115SW (a beast)
I am amazed and now ready to explore audio hi-fi enhancements.
I am considering:
(i) a streamer, and thought about Cambridge CXN;
(ii) a CD player (ideally combined with a blue-ray), and thought about Oppo 205-D or Cambridge CXUHD 4k
(iii) a turntable, and thought about Rega Planar 1
(iv) last step would be a power amp or integrated stereo amp, not sure what would better fit the above, and thought about Cambridge CXA80 or Monoprice Monolith 2ch. Importantly, I would like to be able to hook my sub to the stereo amp.
As I am still a beginner, please let me know if the above makes any sense, or if I am missing anything.
My main target is to find a system that extracts the most from my speakers, but under a reasonable price. For instance, I would only consider Oppo 205-D over CXUHD if the difference is really worth the extra money. The same applying for the separate streamer. Would just consider it if the difference is effective. I must say though that I mostly listen to Spotify and Tidal, so a streamer is in principle a number 1 of my list.
What do you guys think?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
