First AV setup, music important - have 20yo Pioneer A300X / Tannoy Mercury M2 currently..!!
I have a very old Pioneer A300X / Tannoy Mercury M2 combo currently hooked up to a Pioneer Kuro telly used mostly for Blue Ray and Sky HD. The amp is understandably showing it's age (joke in there I know) and it's beginning to fail, occasionly the left channel needs "tweaked" to get it to sound loud etc.
I want to upgrade to a new amp, one that will sound as good as the Pioneer, which in it's day was a mighty good amp, so I don't want something thats all singing all dancing but sounds rubbish.
Question - can I upgrade the sound of this system to something that will initially be for stereo only, but will ultimately do full surround? Im thinking of spending around £500 for the app, and would be interested in getting a speaker package that can be added to gradually over time, so with that in mind was looking at Keff R100 series, problem is I'm out of touch with amp / speaker matches and don't know what would suit - would the 2012 Yamaha award winner match well with Keff, or are the speakers a waste (perhaps overkill for this amp?
I'd like something that could start with L / R, add centre, add rear, add sub etc - that type of gradual but ultimately quality sound upgrade - I'm a patient man!
Input sources would mainly be Sky, Blu Ray (currently via Sony PS3) and Sonos, content mainly Spotify
Thanks in advance
