I would go w/the speakers first then the electronics. When I upgraded I went w/Aerial 5T's the demoed preamps and settled on a Luxman CL38U-SE. for me an excellent combo.

I like your considerations for improving music listening. You might also consider the Cambridge Audio CXA-61 integrated amp. ESS Sabre chip is distinct improvement for that model. Review link below. Good luck, have fun, Merry Xmas.

The Marantz is slightly better, but not really good enough to make the leap if costs are associated with the upgrade.


Save up for the Marantz PM8006 if you really want an upgrade with either of the speakers that you are considering.

Been a long time since I’ve heard Jamo but they were warm and slightly laidback, the MA Silvers will be the best IMO of the 3 speakers you’re talking about. The Silvers will be a little more forward sounding but not bright or fatiguing.
I think the amps won’t be much of an upgrade, more of a swap of sonic sound signatures. It much of an upgrade.

I would think of that amp change as more of a sideways move, not an upgrade. I'm not familiar with the Jamo speakers but I've had Silver 2's and 6's and Q150's. They are very different. The Monitor Audio Silvers are significantly better than Kef Q series imo. Better tweeter, better cabinet, better midrange, more transparent. The Q150/350 are a bit warmer sounding. Still nice detail in the treble but a bit of a veiled/warmer sound in the midrange/upper midrange. If you like Wharfedale Diamonds you'll love Kef Q150/350. If the Diamonds are too laid back/veiled you'd prefer the MA Silvers.
