Hi guys. Here's the deal - my speakers are Monitor 10B, circa 1985 (real oak veneer, excellent condition :) ). In the last few years I have been upgrading my audiophile equipment up into that rarified spectrum where I have to worry about such insane crap as how my power cords sound...if you have been there you know what I am talking about. Recently I bought a Bel Canto eVo2i Gen II integrated amplifier that I am extremely happy and impressed with...well I am sure it has outclassed the rest of my system.
Throughout all the auditioning of amps, preamps, interconnects, power cords, and speaker cables, the one constant has been my 10Bs. I have never been disappointed with the sound of them, and they certainly seem to have the resolution to project the subtle nuances of all the A/B comparisons I have done. But I can't help but wonder if I missing out on whatever modern speakers have to offer.
I know, I know...I will only find out by listening. No doubt, but I am hoping you guys have gone through this before and can offer opinions as to what it would cost to improve on the 10Bs...there is always room for improvement in audio (I'm guessing the Wilson Audio Alexandrias at $135,000 are somewhat better :p ) but I don't want to buy $2000 speakers and not see significant improvement. Heck, what is the $600+ my Polks cost me in 1985 worth in todays dollars anyway?
TIA for your input...
