I have had my existing system for many years now, which is
comprised of the following:
-Modwright Sony 999ES with Signature Truth mods and upgraded
-Belles 21A tube (12au7) preamp with Auricap upgrade
-AES Six Pac EL34 monos with Jensen paper-in-oil cap upgrade
-Merlin TSM-MX with upgrades to MXE status
-TG Audio (Bob Crump) and Harmonic Technology cabling,
various PC’s and conditioners, etc.
I've got the itch to upgrade my system, spending maybe an
additional $2,500 out-of-pocket. I am
looking for upgrade ideas, trying to get more detail, separation, soundstage, body, etc. I’m thinking
maybe the pre is the weakest link? As such,
I was looking at the usual pre’s: Sachs, Ultraverve, Chardonnay, etc. But then I was also thinking maybe instead sell
the amps and pre and get a tube integrated or a new set of separates? Sell the amps and keep the pre? In any scenario, I wish to keep the CDP and
speakers. Oh, and definitely need a
remote control to use.
Any input is appreciated.
