Dears ,

 

After long research in this Forum and auditioning Focal 826V/KEFQ700/PSB Imagine T2  i found PSB Imagine T2 to be good for my classical / instrument taste . I picked it  from Dubai for 1875USD for a pair from an authorized dealer . I believe its a good bargain.

 

Now Looking for a integrated AMP , which one you suggest for a True sound .

 

Regards,

Meetrijas

Thanks Mark . At present I have a Denon AVR x2000 . PSB arrives only today . Will connect and see how the performance in "PURE" mode.

 

I auditioned the PSB's and other speakers  with Marantz 5004 , I was happy , but felt little warm .

 

We have all brands here , I am looking either at Marantz or Cambridge Audio - Azur 351A - Integrated Amplifier with USB Input . What do you say about Cambridge audio ?

why did you buy the x2000? honestly if it has all the features you want i would stick with that, you wont hear much if any difference in sound with an intergrated amp.

Cambridge is good, so is marantz. if you like to play music very loud i would maybe look for more power than the 351A.

x2000 was not an appropriate guy  , the only reason I chose is to have a centralized guy for all AV needs .. TV/Cable/Laptop.. and even the Google Chrome device works on it .

 

4 - 5 days  with x2000 + PSB Imagine ( STEREO ) I am happy .. PSB Imagine T2's  are excellent true sound speakers ... .. 

 

The new buff about External DAC's ... is that real worth ... to pair with a AVR's which already ahve good DAC ..have good audio DAC

If you just need an integrated amplifier, I would recommend the Music Hall A15.3 amplifier.

If you want an AVR, then I would suggest the NAD T758.

IMO those will sound better than the X2000.

External DAC will blow away the DAC in the x2000 I have the x4000 with imagine B speakers and the avr DAC is terrible.

Panasonic 65VT30 | Denon x4000 | Emotiva XPA-5 | Emotiva XSP-1 | Emotiva DC-1 | PSB imagine B's |PSB image c5 | PSB B4's | DUAL PSA XS30 | OPPO 103 | minidsp

Curious to know the name of the store you bought them from.

Dears ,

 

I am very happy with PSB Imagine T2's . But feels a dedicated setup will produce more results than the current AVR Denon x2000 for stereo.

 

How about NAD 546BEE + NAD 326BEE for the PSB's . NAD player can play .mp3 as well and  it has dedicated Dual-Configuration DAC .

 

Will I see considerable improvement ?
