I'm starting to get back into audio and home theater. I use to be big into it back in the 80's before marriage, but a wife and young kids will put a quick stop to high end stereo purchases and I pretty much got into movies and away from the audiophile side of things. I was looking to upgrade my Jamo Cornet speakers which I've had for some years now and have been spending way to much time doing research according to my wife. I was thinking of upgrading to some Monitor Audio B4's to get a bit more bass response for audio without having to use my sub. The sub would then be used for only home theater surround sound applications. My current set-up is as follows:
Sony GA9ESG Receiver
Jamo Cornet II Speakers
Jamo 100 center and surrounds
MTX PS100 Sub
Since I'm getting long here I'll get to the point. In my research I ran upon some articles regarding my old Kenwood Basic M2A(B) amp and Basic C2 preamp. Seems they are somewhat sought after. They've been sitting boxed up in my closet for the past 10 or so years and are in great shape. I'm wondering if they are worth keeping (if so why?) or should I sell them and maybe upgrade my speaker choice to the Monitor Audio Silver RS6? Any help, comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
