Hi all, Per the title, I've recently have been bitten by the "buy NEW" Bug. I have been a used/second Hand Guy for far too long and I hope to (at least in part) update some of my Stereo gear with some new modern gear. Presently (aside from my Mono systems which I still enjoy) I'd like to (if nothing else) purchase some new (efficient) Speakers. I want that BIG FAT sound but don't want TOO large of a (Stereo) Speaker system. I thought about Cornwalls however, I'm thinking too big (and too expensive new). So now, I'm thinking some "Floor/Towers" type Speakers that have (somewhat) larger drivers. My present Amp (used/as new) is an Integrated NAD C326BEE which so far I am enjoying. I also have a (refurbished) FISHER 400 Tube Amp I'd like to try with some larger new efficient Speakers. So, I've been looking (on line) at all sorts of recommended Speakers such as Tekton, Zu, Focal, Fyne, Omega to name a few. Presently, I am using a (used) pair of POLK 10 Monitors (which sound pretty damn good)! The Cabs are so-so, but all the Drivers are pristine! My Audio Room (the largest room in my house) measures 18.5 X 20.5 so this room can pretty much support a larger Speakers system. Speakers aside for the moment......here's another question that's really causing me confusion......I have a vintage SAE MARK IV DM Stereo Amp needing update/repair. Beautiful Amp! I also have the matching (both in beautiful Wood Cases) SAE Per Amp. Do you think I would experience BETTER sound/performance with the vintage SAE Amp (once repaired) over another "Higher End" Integrated Amp such as a Rega Brio, Rogue Sphinx, Cyrus, etc. ? Perhaps I should consider the SAE Amp and a NEW Pre Amp ? Any thoughts/suggestion/recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Regards (confused in Maine) SixCats!
