I had some general questions about an Audiophile grade audio system that I was hoping to get some insight on.
The gist is this: for high end speakers (for example, Triad Gold Mini-Monitors), what are the key elements that need to be addressed and incorporated properly in order for the whole system to be on the level of these speakers?
- finding an appropriate amplifier
- finding an appropriate pre-processor (should this be a separate component or integrated into the amplifier?)
- is power conditioning necessary? Does this actually affect sound quality?
- anything else?
Any guidance would be much appreciated.
