I thought my Hk3490,GFA555 and Monitor 70's sounded pretty good even though the sound could get a bit harsh at times.This is mainly due to the fact that my house is all hardwood and ceramic tile.Only the bedrooms are carpeted.
Anyways, my intentions were to pick up a piece at a time until I had everything and then hook it all up at once.Well Super Bowl Sunday arrives and I get bored and decide to hook everything up even though my new speakers aren't here yet.
Pre-GFP750 -WOW!!!!! Much,much cleaner sounding.Less harsh, everything sounds tighter and more defined.It just seems to flow naturally while listening to CD's. My interest in the Bowl game was soon lost and I spent my night rediscovering my favorite CD's
Tuner-CA Azur 650T- Disappointing !! The HK kicks it's butt in every thing I want it for,which is mainly listening to XM/Sirius.The 650T just sounds to compressed compared to the HK.The display on the 650T is pretty much worthless,it's to small to be readable unless your right on top of it.
Even though I am disappointed in the tuner, the pre and cdp combo more than make up for it.I'm jammin and don't even have my new speakers yet.
Speakers- Monday the new LSi15's arrive.
As impressed as I was with the new pre and cdp playing through the 70's it's hard to beleive it could get any better.But it did.A lot better.
Cleaner,smoother,tighter,and much more detailed.The amount of bass is unbelievable.
The next thing (probably should have been the first thing) is do something for the accoustics in this echo chamber.
Thanks for reading.
