Hello all. I’m new to the forum but would like to dive right in with a question. I’m mostly pleased with my current system but find that I’m looking for something that adds that extra something, possibly in the soundstage, and wondering how to achieve that without starting all over!
So my system is Rega Jupiter CD, Rega Brio 2 integrated amp, Rega XEL speakers, , Atlas Equator 2.0 speaker cable, XLO Ultra interconnect, and with a tiny nod to power conditioning, Tacima surge protection interference filter.
I mostly listen to acoustic type music from classical to folk so it’s the warmth and intimacy of the sound rather than absolute accuracy. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, David

Room Treatments

Do you have any room treatments? Treating first reflection points and calming room modes with corner bass traps can make a substantial improvement. Also an adjustable center diffuser between the speakers can give you an extra element of control over center focus and depth.

Right. You want to reveal

Right. You want to reveal the soundstage information by reducing your room's colorations, not add anything that was not on the recording. Attention to acoustics is the first step.
