Step up from NAD C275BEE

Recommended Posts

I have a bad case of upgraditis.  I need some advice.

 

My system comprises Classe model 30 pre, NAD c275BEE power, OPPO 103 CD, Magnepan MMG and arcam irDac

 

The system makes music but I want more.  I am comfortable with keeping the Classe, oppo and arcam, unsure of the rest.

 

suggestions on how to improve would be gratefully accepted 

 

thank you

What element of the sound are you looking to improve and what sort of budget? Have you looked at room treatments as this is often a great place to start.

Otherwise, how about an analogue front end?[emoji6]

Thank you for your feedback,

 

no room treatments, I have a small narrow (long) listening space.  Imaging left to right and front to back is virtually perfect.

 

i have analogue coming out of both ears (2 turntables, both Thorens, one mm, once mc)   I am looking for more finesse, better micro dynamics, balanced inputs (?). 

 

Budget (?) < $2k - don't mind used.

 

Thanks

I would suggest that you consider the Classe Audio Fifteen power anp for sale in the Classifieds:

You could always add another NAD C275Bee power amp and operate both power amps in bridge mode.....gives over 300 watts per side, as well as heaps of current.

You didn't mention the cables? Whilst being quite polarizing here, on my system, changing all cables from stock to high quality made an amazing improvement. Buying used off the forum should make it a cost neutral exercise should you think it not worth while.
I'd also support the idea of room treatments on all first reflection points.
