advice with playing cd's with my set up
i am starting to get into cd's a bit more again & am just looking for someone to give me a bit of advice if they think i can get a bit more openness out of my system to me it sounds very clean but a bit cold it does'nt feel like it is filling the room with music no where near as well as i remember my 2 channel arcam or marantz amps doing it just gets louder & stronger i hope someone can make sense of that.
as i don't have room for 2 systems i am looking at ways to get the best out of my av amp for cd replay, at the moment i have from start to finish a tacima 929 with a marantz 6000 ki cd player plugged in connected by qed silver spiral interconnectors to a onkyo 905 av amp using a isotek mains lead plugged direct into the wall socket on it's own the amp is used in bi-amp mode linked to a pair of castle harlech speakers with qed qenesis bi-wire speaker cable.
i use all castle speakers in my home cinema so don't really want to replace them and as i think they still do a good job, plus a remember openness being a strong point with them helped by the upward firing speaker when i used them in my 2 channel set up years ago, i know my cd player is getting on a bit now so don't know if this is the weak link but it still work fine and as not been used a massive amount over the last few years so as not been over used. i am also aware the onkyo 905 is not known for being great with music so am i just getting the limit out of what this amp can do with a cd or would a cable change somewhere help or adding a dac to use with the cd player.
so does anyone have any idea how to get a bit more life out of my system, thanks for any advice anyone can give
