Advice on speakers-amp-music pairing
This is my first post as a member of the 'Gon although I've been skulking around here for a while now. I wanted to know if anyone can help me with choosing the right amp for my musical tastes.
Equipment consists of:
B&W CDM 7NT speakers
Anthem AVM-20 pre/pro/tuner
Pioneer Elite DV-45A DVD-A/V, SACD, CD player
(Currently using an old Onkyo receiver for amplification)
Musical tastes consist of:
Glitch, EBM, IDM, Darkwave, Synthpop, Electro, Ambient
(i.e. Autechre, Gridlock, VNV Nation, Statemachine, etc.)
The music is very electronic with a moderate amt. of vocals and I'm worried about pairing my B&W's with an amp that's going to be too warm (as the B&W's sound beautifully warm already). I've been considering the Odyssey Stratos, Rotel, and Anthem. Looking to spend about $1k and am wondering if I'm looking at the right amps. Should I be looking at Krell (expensive!) or what? Any help would be great! Thanks!
