I purchased Onkyo 609 receiver,PSB Image T6 floor standers and super cube 3 sub woofer. I am looking for a good stereo setup. Basically I like good clarity at less volume and good sound stage. I was thinking of the following options. My listening room is 20* 14 feet and it is not a dedicated room (not exactly regular shape) and it is living cum dining room of an apartment.
Option 1) good integrated amp like NAD C375 BEEE or Anthem integrated 225. Spec wise and by weight Anthem 225 is better than NAD C375. Only my worry is how well it pairs with PSB speakers.It is tough to have an audition in Bangalore for Anthem.
Option 2 buying NAD C 165BEE Stereo Preamplifier and Emotiva power amp XPA-2/ NAD C 275BEE power amp . Option 2 is expensive than integrated amp NAD C375 BEEE or anthem 225. But I thought the slight higher price and effort in bringing emotiva will be ok if there is big improvement in performance.
Option 3 getting USP-1 stereo amp with XPA2 from Emotiva.
It will be great if you can give me your valuable suggestion. I cannot do audition of Anthem and emotiva in my place and I dont have the trail option also.
If you have any other good option please let me know.
Thanks in advance
