Re: what next

I would leave them just as they are. They should be producing fine music. What do you think is lacking?

Adding a dedicated power supply would not bring any significant improvement to the overall sound quality or character (IMO) - bear that in mind.

I had a Cyrus CD8x, Pre & Power combo - tried them with and without the power supply. I did not personally notice any noticeable improvement that would justify the cost of having them, so they went.

I can think of far better ways to spend the same outlay.

Your speakers, i love the sound of them!

upgrade???

Demo i few different speaker cables and powercords from your local dealer?

Get the tacima 6way mains block (that's in the review's section), E-bays £25 delivered, my favorite upgrade recently.

Re: what next

You have an awesome set up at the price points and looks well balanced, although the spendor A6's are awesome if you can trade in the A5's?

if you just want to pursue a hobby, i would look into streaming music using a logitech squeezebox duet and getting a Cyrus DAC and pre amp; but may as well sell your current pre amp. Won't necessarily improve the sound but will give much more flexibility in music selection.
