I'm so confused by the options out there and want some serious advice on where to turn.
I'm looking to match a mid priced amp (@$2K) to my sonus faber concerto domus floor standing speakers. I mostly listen to female vocals, french cafe/lounge music, and acoustic guitar/vocal.
My listening room is the combined main lounge/dining room of my house and measures 4 meters wide x 10 meters long x 3 meter high (13.1 ft x 32.8 ft x 9.8 ft)) that opens to a loft/void at one end. It also contains an internal stair well.
The domus speaker specs are-
FREQUENCY RESPONSE: 35 Hz - 20.000 Hz, tuning port included
SENSITIVITY: 88 dB SPL (2,83 V/1m).
NOMINAL IMPEDANCE: 4 ohm.
POWER HANDLING: 30W - 200W, without clipping.
I was considering the Cyrus 6XP d Qx (40 W per channel). I like the upgraded DAC option so that I can use my Apple Mac/AppleTV/Export Express as a source. Was also considering the Cyrus 6SE as the CD player.
Your thoughts and other suitable alternatives would be greatly appreciated [:D]
