hope you guys can give some advice:
bought nice CM5 speakers (now with marantz pm 6003 & MacBook & HRT II streamer) and am looking for a potential upgrade of the amp. I hear the cm5 needs a relatively powerful amp, but not sure which would be best. I notie the sound with marantz is nice when i push up the volume, but on low levels its quite plain. The room is regular site, and i am particularly interested in getting a nice full sound even at low background levels. I stream music and i would like to be able to add a nice recordplayer. because unable to test these all head-to-head in my local hifi store your two cents is worth a lot to get me started! Some ideas:
-NAD 356 or even 390DD (local deal for 1700euro)
-naim unitilite or nxs ( i had tested the unitiqute2 plus nap 100 which sounded lovely, but not sure this is the best future proof investment because of only one analog input, I'd be in problems if in some years decide to also want to add a cd player. Your ideas?).
- caspian roksan or kandy
or perhaps these amplifiers are abit overkill and you have other suggestions? Thanks in in advance for the advice!
