In a quandry wrapped in an enigma
I haven't a clue as to what to do anymore.
My situation is thus:
I have had many systems throughout my life the likes of Magnepan (4 different ones including my current 1.6's), genesis apm1's,ML requests,Soundlab,B&W's,Vandersteens... along with various electronics like Mark Levinson, Rogue Audio, YBA, Classe...
I'm trying to paint the picture of the type of sound I prefer, large soundstage with slam and transparency)
In the last few years I have found that my enjoyment of music has declined significantly due to tinnitus (over 80 db sometimes@5500 or so)and a high frequency loss that's very prevalent and my focus is no longer on detail or transparancy as much as a warm seductive midrange but yet still have the ability to be bombastic when called for.
Right now I have an all maggie surround system w/sunfire jr sub and the nad t-765 receiver and it just aint cuttin the mustard anymore. So I am selling everything and building a 2 channel system with the proceeds (about 3k i'm thinking.
Now finally to the crux of my biscuit. I haven't a clue to what synergy will give me the lush, warm,soul wrenching emotional sound I so desire while still supplying slam and that huge sound stage I have grown so accustomed to. I think HF extension or hyper detail is a moot point for me anymore. Anyone suggesting bose will be shot on the spot!!!
Any help would be greatly appreciated
