    My son uses my old RTA 8T's and they sound great with harder rock. You can generally pick them up for around $100 and there come through CL quite often.

    What can I replace my SDA-2's with?

    Does It Really Get Better Than This

    During my upgrade adventure, I bought an Adcom 545 to use with my Marantz 2270. Didn't sound quite as nice as the internal Marantz amp. Then I bought a Parasound 1500a and wow - what a difference.

    I absolutely love my new (used) Parasound 1500a 2 channel. Huge difference from my Adcom 545. It could be just the additional wattage but I think it's more than that.
