PMC make great speakers that measure extremely well and sound great. Lots of engineering, experience, and working with driver manufacturers.
The *only* thing I would recommend you consider (funds allowing) is a Bryston B-100 SST. You can even find some with an onboard DAC.
I have not heard the Exposure but if you've hit the [satisfaction] sweet spot, enjoy!
@keithtexas Thanks for the suggestion. Looking to replace the Creek, my main 2 options were Bryston and Naim (5si, XS) from what I've read about matching to PMC. My funds only permitted a Bryston B60 and that wasn't my top choice. I took the plunge on the Exposure which from what I've previously read is similar to Naim but is more detailed with wider soundstage. I can't compare to any of the above since I didn't hear them in my system but I can say that the Exposure is great.
@jafant Yes, it actually already sold! Once I had the Exposure, I compared it side by side to the Creek. To be honest, there isn't MUCH between the two, but I liked the Exposure better. Music was clearer, and overall more enjoyable. Financially, I would lose less reselling the Creek, so I listed it here and it sold on the same day, which was pretty quick
I hate to say this, but... Even though there are times when I am thrilled with my rig, when it seems everything is just right, a real goldilocks situation, there are times when things are less right. Then, when I am thinking it just can't get any better without spending gobs of money, a small speaker position adjustment or a new cable will take things to an even better level. But, really, enjoy your system!
@bondmanp I know what you mean. I myself, have made some slight adjustments since this post :)
I am atleast happy that I didn't have the urge to replace any of the main components, but I did do some tweaking since such as adding a iFi iUSB and iPurifier between the PC and DAC, replaced the power cord connectors to Furutech Rhodium, in addition to a Rhodium fuse in the amp.
Subtle differences... not night and day though
