My Hi Fi / AV system, old and new
Hi all, here are some piccys' of my AV setup, consisting of:
Sony KDL 40 W45000
Humax Foxsat HDR
Sony BDP-S550 Blu-ray player
QED Performance HDMI cables
Sonic Link Toslink cable
Yamaha DSP- E800 processor
Kef Q85 series center and rear speakers
QED Micro AV cables
Roksan Caspian CD player
Arcam A85 Integrated Amp
Chord Chorus interconnects
Van den Hull interconnects
Monitor Audio GR20 speakers (fronts for surround)
Sonic link AST200x2 biwire speaker cable
Tacima CS929 mains conditioner
Stands Unique AV rack
I have a bright south facing lounge so hence the LCD TV. I elected a few years ago to use a processor with my stereo speakers as the surround fronts, as I wanted to keep the amps separate. As it is it works very well. You will notice there is no sub. The MA's shake the walls as it is so I have never invested in one as yet. The walls are stone and the floor is tiled so any bright sounding hardware just didn't work. After various systems including Kefs, Nad, Arcam, QED cabling etc. I settled on this line up which gives me an open transparent sound with oodles of controlled bass, transparent midrange and detailed polite treble. Mind you this was 7 years ago!
I would like to "freshen" the audio side up a little bit without changing any major components just yet. Anyone have any ideas as to what I could do?
Also, if I did add a sub, any suggestions as to which to consider?
