Its hard to recommend something without knowing what type of speakers you have. That said, I would probably go with a new preamp first and then the amp.

Yes I know it's a loaded question but not totally off the mark.
I deign and build loudspeakers. I currently use a hybrid open baffle and since it is not a commercially available speaker I know you won't be able to comment on the speaker. Now I DO know that my pre and Amp are late 1980's and 1990's vintage and I was looking for a "whoa they've come a long way since then" or "It's still great equipment don't bother" I hope this gives some insight as to why i asked the way I did.
I wouldn't take any advice from Warrenh. He doesn't like me. In a different post, he was asking for advice on how to get the best sound from his iPod. When he told everyone that all of his music is stolen I posted the following:
This is how you can get the best sound from your ipod. First, get a tape recorder and set it to record. Second, take your ipod full of stolen music and shove it right up your ass. Third, post a link to the only recording that you now have that's not stolen so we can all have a good laugh."
I don't know about you, but I wouldn't take any advice from someone like that.
ouch! is this going to be a habit?....stalk'n me Zdman?"
It depends on what you mean by "stalk'n". If it means that every time you see a comment of mine and then take it upon yourself to enter the conversation and say stupid things just because I hurt your feelings, then yes, I'll stalk'n you every time.
Since when is it a loaded question to list your system and ask advice on what component to upgrade?
