Please don't laugh...but I'd appreciate advice...
English

I love my music (ageing Genesis fan!) but do most of my listening in the car, where I have a great system.

I rarely listen at home, so have an old set up I bought over 15 years ago (don't laugh) - a Technics AA VC-4 amp & SLP200 CD player - which after playing up, was replaced with a Cambridge CD4. Forget the speakers (Richer Sounds specials!) because I only use headphones at home (similarly old).

 The question is...if I bought a Cambridge 340A SE amp & 340C CD player (both of which have had great reviews) along with the Grado SR60 headphones (and I note Richer Sounds are currently chucking in some S30 speakers for £329....how much better would it all sound?

 I suspect you're all falling about laughing...

 Regards

Andy

we all have to start somewhere Smile I dont know much about the amp or cd but i know the grado's have an excellent sound as my brother has the 90's , I was always a Sennheiser man until i heard them which made me sit up and listen Smile hope this helps as little as it is Smile

if you really do all your home listening through headphones then i would recommend you get a dedicated headphone amp. I would also consider buying better headhones as well - a small increase in price will dramatically improve the sound! You could get a CREEK OBH21 amp for about £185.00 and a pair of Grado SR225's for the same price - this combo would give outstanding results!

Ditto I am a huge fan of Grado & have 2 pairs only for my ipod mind you but I have some SR60's & the new igrado for out & about...I would never buy any other make now! So I can only imagine that as you go up through the range of Grado's they just rock even more even though you find it hard how they can improve on an already superb sound!
