Hi All, Just looking for a little info on upgrading my current system which is: Whatmough Magnum series speakers: 2 x M30 front mains (4 ohms, 40 - 150 watt) 1 x M05 centre (4 ohms, 40 - 100 watt) 2 x M10 rears (8 ohms, 40 - 100 watt) AV Receiver: Sony STR-DE485 (please don't laugh) ;-) (Rated at 100watts per channel....hmmm???) Blu-Ray Disc - DVD Player: Sony BDP-S580 I know the speakers are not top of the range and have some age, but I just love them, and I am thinking of adding a Whatmough Tornado 2 sub to the mix. I am open to suggestions for the sub, I just figure the Whatmough would be a good choice and would match well with my current speaker set up. As for the amp.....well I would love to go nuts here but I am on a budget (trying to keep the amp under $1000). I am very fond of NAD equipment, and the NAD T748 (data sheet attached) seems like it would tick the boxes for features (and a pleasant lack of bells & whistles), while focusing on true sound quality and power for a reasonable RRP of $699. I am just a little concerned that it may be a little under powered for my Whatmough speakers? (although I have no doubt it would be a MAJOR improvement over my current Sony amp...LOL). To step up to the NAD T757 which I am sure would be great for my setup, but at a RRP of $1499 is getting a bit out of the budget and not sure if I can justify the extra $800 odd dollars when the T748 would be a big improvement anyway?? I do use the system for both music and movies and would appreciate any advice. Thanks :-) NAD T748.pdf
