with the new house and car purchase, the funds for upgrades are virtually non existant. while I am happy with my theater and 2 channel rigs, there is one thing in each that could be addressed
for the 2 channel, I'm thinking a better tube pre might be needed to get the most out of my system. the Dodd rocks, dont get me wrong, but I'm thinking I have the equipment to warrant a step up in the tube pre department. I'm thinking used in order to stretch my buck.
for the theater, the room I have can use a little more sub. My 142.5L shiva box is a great sub, but I have a little too much room to have it fill the bill with authority. the Hsu stf2 doing rear sub duty fills the gaps, but I'm wondering if I should just get an SVS and be done with it.
while I said I am broke in terms of the audio funds at the moment, I am in the process of selling some surplus stuff. its stuff I love to death, but dont use. (note the vandersteens in the flea market, and a club polk member who at the moment shall remain nameless has laid claim to my SDA-1B's) this alone I am hoping to get me around 900 bucks combined. If I figure on selling the Dodd down the road, thats another 300 (thats what I got it for, I wouldnt sell it for more unless no club pol member takes it, which is doubtful :) )
so I'm figuring a 1200 dollar budget for either endeavor. any of you guys have any thoughts. think I'm going in the wrong direction? I notied that guy in NY selling Carver Monoblocks, and i've thought about that too, but I dont think they are that much better than my 4.0t to the point that I would blow off upgrading the pre.
