I've been dissatisfied with my system of late--wanting a little more brightness and color--and can't decide if it's the amp or the speakers, or both. Here's the set-up:
Krell KAV-300i integrated
Schiit Gungnir DAC
Tekton Lore speakers
The Krell was a hand-me-down (!); everything else was purchased new. The amp had some overpriced work done to it a few years back and I'm wondering if the workmanship is starting to show, or possibly its age (~25 years, I'm guessing). Or, are the amp and speakers mismatched?I can afford to invest about $3K in the system, but am unsure where best to put it.Any thoughts/advice would be much appreciated.
@alfa100 cleaning the contacts is a good idea. I know that the hearing in my left year is somewhat diminished (many years of driving convertibles), but my wife confirmed the audio issues and, I promise, she is not one to humor me.
