I'm currently looking to upgrade my set-up which currently consists of:
CD8x - CD Player + PSX-R power supply
8vs Amplifier + PSX-R power supply
Monitor Audio Silver 8i - Floorstanding Speakers
Cyrus interconnect + Chord Rumor Bi-Wire
Russ Andrews Classic powercords on CD & Amp + Russ Andrews 6 Way Silencer Block
Listening room: 5m long x 4.5m wide
I've just placed my order for the Cyrus 8 Power Amp. Should I consider adding another PSX-R to this unit?
Next on my list is a new set of speakers and possibly speaker cable. I currently have the ProAc Studio 140's and Cyrus speaker cable on home trial. The improvement to the overall sound is good, the detail this Cyrus/ProAc kit can dig up is amazing, but it seems a little too bright in the mid/top end compared to my current set-up.
Will the 8 Power help to take the shine off things? or should I try some different speakers or cable? or do I need to give the speakers more time to run in?
My budget is around £2000.
Any tips much appreciated.
