My current setup is marantz PM6010 Ki Signature amplifier, wharfedale diamond 10.4 speakers, and a Dual CS 505-3 turntable with Ortofon 2M Blue Cartridge; for digital music, i use a laptop and a HRC Music Streamer II DAC with asynchronous USB.
I want to upgrade the system, and my budget is 700-1000 EUR; I'm interested in buying used equipment, and i found the following in my area:
- a Clearaudio Concept turntable for 700 EUR (without a cartridge, so i would be using the ortofon 2M blue)
- a Roksan Kandy K2 amplifier for 700 EUR
I am aware that if i upgrade the system with any of these parts, there would be an unbalance between the components quality, but i have to start somewhere :grin: i plan to upgrade all of the components, but i won't have all the money any time soon...
In conclusion, of these 2 items, what should i buy first ? I was thinking of the TT, as it is a great bargain, and the chances are slim that i will ecounter such an offer again...
