So I decided that I need to listen to more 2 channel music and since my Onkyo/Emotiva/PSB HT setup is in the living room utilized by my wife and kids I would set up the 2 channel system in my office.
I ordered a pair of EMP Tek E5bi, bought a Fiio D3, used my old NAD 302 and Velodune CHT-10 to play my HD Tracks files via optical out from PC. Total budget route.
Of course upgraditus quickly set in and started looking at Peachtree Decco2, MH A15.2, Emotiva XDA-1/UPA-2 and a few others figuring I would have to carefully manipulat..I mean convinve my wife. She said she would get me the Decco2 for Christmas.
Now I wonder if the ~$600 would be better spent elsewhare. Not too many places to audition here in Austin so relying on input from you guys.
Leaning towrds the Music Hall A15.2 but don't see a way to hook up the sub and control volume at MH, Emo XDA-1 + UPA-2 (could run to line in on sub from XDA-1, then line out to UPA-2,) upgrade speakers to PSB Image B6/Wharfedale Diamond 10.1, save for Rega Brio R, Cambridge AR-30? Arrggh!
Now that she said yes I am spinning in circles.
What would you do if it was your system? Listen to Hard Rock, Classic Rock, Smooth Jazz, Electric Blues.
