while thanking you all experys in audio in advance , my qiestion is whrthef the marantz AV8801 will makea knight anf fay difference quality in my system.
my system consists of kef R 500 floors as fronts R 200cas center, R100 for surrounds and two pairs ofsame kefs q100 as frontheights and surround backs thus my system is 9 channel one.thesub woofefis kef r400.
my receiver is yamaha avantage 3010 with 11.2 channel capability. i later purchased a NAD 977 power amp of7 channels andconnected to 7 pre outs of yamaha 3010. two of yamahas receiver channels are being used two power two front height speakers of q100.
my hall comprises dimentions 18 feet x 15 feet.but d dining cum upstair openingand hall has a roof openingbeing duplex house.
while overall soundquality is good off late im thinking to get a preamp mostly marantz av 8801.
could you please tel me will there be any night and day difference in soundquality?
my main concern is that the kef speakers and yamaha receiver bkth are warm and laid back. i hear overall sound good but i feel each speaker is murmuring to itself being laid back.
will marantz preamp render the sound a forward qualiy and in general whatis the sound quality ofmarantz and suitabllity to my kef R series speakers.
