Upgrade the speakers. The XA-1 is about 40W, isn't it? So you'll want a fairly sensitive pair of speakers, at least 89db. And you could also get the X10-D and X-PSU (which reminds me, i must put mine on ebay as i can't use them anymore).

I had the x10-d but sold it, i regret that but hey ho. Does the power supply you mentioned make much of a difference? is it used on the x-ray? or the amp? maybe we could agree a sell..

Sadly not, the x-psu v3 i have is used for the x-dac, x-10 (and could also be used for the x-can & phono). The xpsu makes a significant improvement to each of these

You'd probably be able to get a pair of new monitor audio GS10's for a monkey on ebay.

I got my GR20's for 700 beans..... dambit!

Mind you, that is in the states, but thats 100 quid less than what I paid and I bet the come without a whacking great dent in the corner!

If you want floorstanders of course...
