Just researching what would be a good speaker choice to go with my cambrige audio 340a, taking into account im looking for more of a bass speaker than top end quality....but not wanting to venture into sub-woofer terirtory.
Ive been finding that the 340a really lacks that bass oomph that the music i listen to is all about. wondering if this amp would more suit people who listen to music based round harmonys etc.
At the moment the amp is rigged up to some old Sony bookshelf speakers that came with a very expensive Sony mini seperates system in 1997, now even though ive had a few systems since 1997 ive still kept hold of these beautys as they are the one of the loudest bookshelf speakers ive ever heard with a lovely bass sound, now when rigged up to the cambridge these speakers just dont seem right, you can turn the volume to full, bass to full and although there is no real distortion which is obviously a good thing, the bass sound and loudness just isnt anything to write home about at all.
Looked at perhaps upgrading to a pioneer A-A6-J Amp on saturday before i took the cambridge back which was giving me shocks , but from the reviews i read it semt that although the pioneer was a fantastic amp i got the feeling that this was more a harmony amp like the cambridge.
Wondering if some quality speakers may sort things out, a strong bass bookshelf speaker would be nice....if such a speaker even exists.
Also, Is there any really rough and raw amps out there like the old pioneer A400 variety, they were really hardcore amps, exspecially for dance music, my mate still has one and it puts my cambridge to shame :(
