CDP for Focal 807V with Exposure 2010S preamp
Hi guys, new to buying (budget) hifi gear but always have been a music lover, from Beethoven to Nine Inch Nails to De La Soul.
My first setup is Focal 807V speakers with an Exposure 2010S preamp. I love this setup, works very well with my expectations of "hi fi" with all types of music, though at times it may be too bright. My current CDP is a Pioneer PDM455 I bought way back in college and finally died. I can describe this piece as "all over the place" soundwise, but can tell the overall system is too bright at times.
Any suggestions for matching my system to a CDP with a more balanced sound? I essentially think the speakers+preamp is a little too bright but cant tell if its my current CDP. Any help will be appreciated. Budget is $1000 but will wait longer if I must spend more to get the best possible sound.
