Hi, Please see attached.

I have the upgrade bug and a chance to buy a local Musical Designs amp for what could be a bargain. As you can see if I buy this amp, I will have to replace the AVR. What do you think? I have money but am cautious to spend it.

I put this system together over a few months of bargain hunting on craigslist - Except for the HSU, I picked that up at their warehouse one day (Living in SoCal had its benefits).

1) What is my strongest component?
-I think it is the NHT combo - I think it can compete with if not excel the HSU in terms of room influence (unless I need a place to put my empty Lasagna plate)

2) what is the weakest component
-Center channel

3) What do I want to do
-Mostly movies, but would like to be floored by the sound for music on the chance i use it for that

well, the amp is highly unlikely to change things...

i see three choices...

1) work on room/speaker setup. this is free.

2) move to an avr with "better" room correction.

3) upgrade your speakers/sub.

Cc forgot to thank you for your input. I decided to stand pat. My equipment has been in storage for 6 months but i was thinking clearly today. I remember once during a movie sayingto myself "for the amount i use this stuff, im glad i did not spend more"

it is always wise to know when to stop... smile.gif i wish i could learn that lesson... redface.gif

if you have some spare time though, #1 on the list is free... try moving your speakers/sub around some... stop, listen and then repeat...

it's time well spent... smile.gif
