I just bought Totem Hawk speakers and a Benchmark HDR (Preamp/Dac). I currently have an Emotiva XP3 but want to replace it. I want to buy a power amp that will keep me happy for a long time. I understand swapping out speakers every one in a while but I hope to keep my electronics for awhile.
Is something like the Parasound A21 or Cambridge 840W enough of an upgrade?
Another option is to buy a higher quality amp used on Audiogon either a Pass or Bryston. I could probably stretch my budget to 3K or so if the difference over the Parasound and Cambridge is significant enough.
