I have an old Linn Classik, a pair of Mission 782 floor standing speakers, and a Technics turntable, and every time i visit my freinds house i feel a dissapointed with my system (he has a primare amp and proac speakers). Anyway i am looking to upgrade/ replace my system, but in stages and was hoping for some advice.
At the moment the main difference i notice is clarity, and that the bass seems out of control. Would this be because the amp is not powerful enough for the speakers? If I listen to something really bassy like D'Angelo's Voodoo, I have to turn the base down to make it listenable. Other albums are not so bad though.
I was thinking of starting with replacing the amp with something like the Roksan Kandy K2, then change the record player, and finally the the speakers (as they are the hardest to get rid of!). I would live to hear some reccomendations
i mostly listen to jazz, soul, clasical.
