Which is the weak link?
Hopefully this will get answered here. I am looking to find the weak link of my system which comprises of the following;
Pioner PDP4280XD Plasma
Pioneer VSX D2011 Receiver
Pioneer 757Ai DVD Player (CD duties too)
Mountain Snow Component cables
Quad 22L2 Front
Quad L Centre
Quad 11L Rear
QED Silver sprkr cable to all front
QED Flat spkr cable to rear
Movie soundtracks sound good to me - fast and accurate, although the centre can sometimes sound like it has a little too much mid-range, e.g. Charlton Hestons voice doesn't sound quite as deep as you think it should.
Music can sound a little 'forward' in the mid-range and sometimes a little 'busy' on guitar based stuff like Snow Patrol, although I am unsure as to if this is down to production rather than system.
I am unsure if putting in a good CD player (Cyrus/Arcam) would be wasted, given the receiver. Or is it down to cables? Not sure where I can go next but I am sure something is holding back the potential of the system.
