Out with the old and in with the New??
Hi folks I am looking for some advice on how best to upgrade my current music system, which is an old Denon micro system with some Wharefedale Diamon 9.1 speakers. I have some Qed Anniversary Speaker cables and Atacama speaker stands. My living room is approx 5 x 4 meters.
I have £1000-£1300 to spend with the aim of getting a noticable improvement in sound quality. I am planning to keep my speakers, leads and stands and upgrade them next year. I listen to a lot of music on CD but I am planning to rip them to my pc and maybe an external storage in a lossless format (all fairly new to me so not done this yet). I also listen to some music via Napster and Spotify but the sound quality isnt as good as my CD's.
So I would really appreciate any suggestions as what to purchase to get the best quality music. Should I get a top quality integrated amp with external dac, or would something like a Naim UnitiQute 2 give me a quality set up. I have also looked at integreated amp and CD combos so I still have the opportunity to plays CD's if I want to. TBH i am all a bit confused what will best suit my needs as there are too many choices and I dont have enough knowledge.
I know my speaker will be a weak point but I cant afford to upgrade the main system and speakers all at once, and would like some Tannoy Revolution DC6.
Any advice will be much appreciated
