New to this forum / owned and loved SDA speakers since 1987 / not a DIY electronics guy
My SDAs are sublime, but if I could noticeably enhance their crispness / clarity / resolution that would be nice.
Looking for a fusion of yesterday and today's technologies to rock the house -- without burning it down.
Here's my vintage system:
Polk L SDA-SRS-2 1755
Polk R SDA-SRS-2 1756
Nakamichi STASIS PA-5/CA-5
Sony C77ES CD
MonsterCable Interlink M1000i (CD/CA-5)
MonsterCable Interlink Reference A Total Bandwidth (CA-5/PA-5)
MonsterCable MCX-2s w/Bananas (PA-5/SDAs)
Here are my questions:
1. Would I get much better sound with a new amp and if so, which one?
I looked into Krell's S-300i integrated amp, but Krell said not with interconnected speakers. Rotel's RB-1582 is also highly rated, but I don't know if it is compatible with my SDAs. I don't want to fry my speakers or amp! Jolida has some very interesting tube equipment, but I'm afraid that like a pet, tubes demand attention. I saw posts praising out of production amps and I don't want to refurbish an amp at this point.
2. Should I upgrade my SDAs?
I read posts about replacing cross-overs and other components. Can that be done by Polk? I'm in Maryland. I think Polk is too. If not, what components do I buy and who would install them? Should I just go to a high end store like Gramophone and ask what they can do?
Thanks for your patience
