I can exchange for a roksan

I can exchange for a roksan if I want to put £150 towards. I would probably pay the 15% restocking fee and buy used tho.
I will try on chairs later thanks

I wouldn't rush into anything until you get the set up sorted out.

Defo get some speaker stands and set up so you are sat in the middle in a triangle of sorts. Once you have your room set up, you'll truly start hearing what that little amp is capable of

RE: I can exchange for a roksan

Hayche I was in a similar situation a few months following an upgrade. It was only listening to the advise from these guys about speaker stands and really concentrating on speaker positioning that I have... soundstage, seperation and sensational sound.

+1  You'll need speaker stands anyway whatever amp you have. The WHF review does say that the amp has a tendency to hold back a little and not let loose when needed. Maybe this is what your experiencing when playing rock or lively music. Also not an easy amp to match with speakers. Sounds like the amp needs forward sounding speakers.

I reckon give it a little time listening in the triangle with tweeters at ear level, your favourite CD's and move the speakers apart gradually to get the best position for stereo image and soundstage. Also experiment with toe-in angles. My Dali's need very little.

Took me a while with my setup. I have the speakers 8' apart and sit 8' from them.

Also worth pointing out that

Also worth pointing out that Arcam generally, despite a lovely tonal presence, does benefit from adding a power amp IMO. No need for one if the speakers are easy to drive but if a little tricky then a power amp is pretty much essential - assuming, of course, your preferance is playing loud.

Can't imagine he'll need a power amp with the wharfdales PP! It drove my Kefs just fine and to decent levels when I had one here...it really is a great amp!
