...in the stereo doldrums. :(
I thoroughly enjoy my SRS's (with RDO's, Vampire posts, and AQ SDA interconnect) but I feel like I'm limiting myself because they can't handle non-common ground amps and I'm a bit chicken to make a big reduction wattage since we know the nature of the SDA's, especially the big boys.
I feel like my source and pre are good enough (for the time being) to let the differences of new speakers and/or amp(s) show through pretty evenly.
With that in mind......
The one thing I'm really afraid of is losing the scale of the music that SRS's present so fully. On the other hand, if I'm gonna truly start experimenting with some new (to me) and better gear (hopefully), I feel like some speakers that I don't have to worry about amp issues with are gonna be a necessity.
So, assuming I move the SRS's which direction should I go? Should hold out and wait for some 1.2's, 2.3's, or SRS-2's to show up and build an AI-1 or try something radically different from the SDA's like the Tyler Linbrook Reference Monitors? (The Tyler's are just an example, but if I go monitors, I want a dual-driver design like the these or the LSi9's or something that can reach down to 40hz or less with ease. I know I don't want the 9's.) Obviously some floorstanders are a preferred option but see my concerns above.
