  1. Currently I have a pair of Celestion Ditton 44 speakers, a Nad 7020e amp and an entry level Cambridge Audio cd player. The cd player was purchased new but the speakers and amp came from ebay. I've had this system for a few years and it sounds OK but not spectacular.


    I've been thinking about having the speakers refurbished but on a whim went into the HiFi shop in York St, Sydney and listened to a pair of Monitor Audio Silver 6 speakers and the difference to what I have at home was amazing. So I am interested to hear what others think: should I continue with the vintage stuff and see if spending some money on the speakers brings an improvement or bite the bullet and buy some new gear?


    Can anyone suggest what kind of price I might get for the Celestions? They only owe me a couple of hundred bucks.

  2. Hello,


    I am just getting back into my HiFi interest after a long hiatus. So far I have amassed a pair of Celestion Ditton 44s, a NAD 7020 receiver and an entry level cd player which I am in the process of replacing with a Raspberry Pi + IQaudIO DAC running the Volumio software. Not the greatest setup by any means but so far I've spent less than $1000 aud and have maintained domestic harmony.


    Overall I'm happy but not blown away by the sound of my setup. I suspect the speakers could do with an overhaul or perhaps the amp is not up to the job? Any input would be welcomed.
