Hey everybody. I'm a bit uneducated when it comes to any recent audio equipment and need some help on an upgrade. Currently I have a 2.1 system with 2 BA A150's and a JBL PB12 I got free and rebuilt with a BASH 300w amp. They are driven by a Sony STR-DE595 which is fed by my computer. I'm still in college so this setup is and will be in a small square apartment room for at least a couple years. I feel that a new amp would create a noticably better sound but am very lost in what to buy. I've been looking at Denon and Onkyo, but seeing as how most of the features they advertise are more connectors and networking support, which benefit me in 0 ways (since this is fed my pc which has access to all these features, and the pc in my opinion is the universal media player on 1 HDMI), I am a little lost at what features merit my money. I have $2,000 which I am only willing to spend all of if the upgrade is something that will last me many many years, that said I'd prefer to keep it under $1000. It would be nice if I could just plug up different components in my system to test before I bought them, but sadly that doesn't seem to be the way the world works. Help me out guys, and feel free to comment on my current speaker setup as well.
