My system is 25 + years old. It’s time to upgrade and I am wondering if any of my components are worth keeping or do I replace some or all? My budget is 5K, I could go a little higher if the performance to value ratio is there.
I listen to rock, jazz and instrumentals by way of CD, Vinyl and my Ipod. I like it loud.
My current system is; Table - Luxman PD121, Tone Arm - Micro Seiki MA-505, Cartridge Ortofon Super OM10 / Amp – Audio Research D-52B 50W@8ohms 80W@4ohms / Pre Amp – Audio Research SP6A (Tube) 3 years ago I upgraded the interstage coupling capacitors with premium Dynamicaps / CD player – Sony CDP-C705 / Speakers – Magnepan MG 2
I know I need to upgrade my speakers and I’m considering Magnepan 1.7s. I love my Maggie’s, other suggestions?
Is my table, tone arm and cartridge good or do I need to replace part or all?
CD player, Amp, Preamp? What I’ve read on the amp it might be worth keeping.
I am not up on components and welcome suggestions.
