Going active ... ?
I recently made a few purchases to add to my collection, including another amplifier and have subsequently found myself bidding on cyrus components, including cd players and PSX-Rs. I am also conemplating some new speakers.
Not quite sure why as I was/am perfectly happy with my current set-up. It also adds to the box count and cost.
So I am contemplating changing to ADM 9RS's. Not because I think they will necesseraly be much better than what I have (I dont know and only had the first generation 9's at my place a couple of times) but when I count cost up of the additional cyrus components (plus speakers) it will exceed the cost of the AVI's. May I add that I perfectly like the cyrus sound, I had a system from the manufacturer before.
It seems like a neat solution (AVI) and will take some of the incentive to change for the sake of it away.
It will be a couple of months before I can afford a pair but I am inclined to go that way at the moment. The only thing I will have to purchase until then is a decent phono stage as I'm not willing to give up vinyl.
