Looking to upgrade my stereo and I'm very new to this. I currently have a Thorens 126mkII(Denon DL160 cartridge), NAD 5100 CD player, and my laptop as sources playing through a NAD 7240PE Stereo Receiver to B&W DM110i speakers.
It seems like upgrading the 7240 would be the first move. I don't need a stereo receiver, just an amp, and the c375bee or 2010s2 have been reviewed well(and fit my budget).
I listen to rock, jazz, and electronica. The room is about 15'X20'.
Figure my next upgrade will be the speakers and I'd like to keep that purchase around $2,000. I've been looking at the Salk Songtower QWT, B&W cm8, Paragidm Studio 60, but would welcome advise here as well.
