Vandersteen treo ct need advice

Hello I'm probably going to purchase the treo ct to replace my 3.0 Theil ( yes > 30 yr old) My amp & pre amp is Tandberg 30008 A & 30006 A ( 150 watts at 8 ohm) Am I doing an injustice to the treos or do I need new equipment........................... I am considering the Rotel 1590 MK II & 1582 II are these up to the quality of the treos?

I'm a CD guy about 2,000 all classical and stream Tidal using my i pad wired to a rotel dac rdd 1580

I need a pre or integrated amp with a tone control due to a benign tumor in my R ear which distorts high so I tone them down a small amt. NO getting around this ( acoustic neuroma .... treat it & loose all hearing on R)

thanks David I

Only you can answer that question. If the Treo CTs (a great speaker to my ears) don't sound good enough with your Tandberg gear see if your dealer will let you audition something else with them at home. As much as you are spending he certainly should. If were me, I would at least have the Tandbergs recapped as old caps are "old". Also, if you have not kept up with cables (IC & speakers), you will be surprised at the improvement in sound gained thru the use of quality, modern cables from the likes of WireWorld, Kimber and several others.
