Hey guys I have a 609 and have Kef q900 floorstanders.. I'm actually really happy with my sound but was curious if any of you changed from a 609 to seperates, like entry level emotiva and noticed much quality improvement? The answer I'm looking for is "no" so I don't have to spend any money heh. I was looking at a headphone oriented dac/preamp and the emotiva xpa-200
edit: I'm pretty familiar with the objectivist arguments of unused reserve power having no effect on sound, doubling power only giving 3db more volume, secondary capacitance, slew rate, dynamic peaks improving with bigger transformers etc being considered myths I'm just looking for reassurance
