Where to go from Odyseey Stratos monoblocks


I own a Meridian 508-20, a VK3i pre, and Mirage M3 speakers. The stratos monos have been realy nice, BUT I amlooking for: more power, greater refinement, more dynamic sound. I like the musicality of the cdp & pre I have and the range of the speakers. I simply want MORE of these things and a little more dynamics as the Mirages can be a load for an amp. I am considering Krell, Plinius, Pass, and Levinson. Any advise from previos owners would help. Thanks

I'm going to give you some advice for an amp for your speakers, I don't post on amp choices much as I do not find amps to be as important (I know,I'll catch hell for this one) as pre-amp,cdp,TT or speakers. Every system, and I have had many, have sounded good as long as the amp could do the job that it needed to do for that system. I love the Mirage M3's and I like them better than their bigger brothers (M-1's). I have a Krell Ksa-250 I bought, and I bought it for one reason only (To do it's job} with my VMPS Super Tower/R's (220 lb. multi-driver speakers that LOVE power and control) Don't listen to the Krell bashers, this amp is one of the best sounding amps ever made and will go over 2000 watts @ 1 ohm. You can find them used for around $2500 on the www. It was made for your speakers and mine.
You might consider a McCormack DNA-2 Rev A. If you are not familiar with this amp, check out smcaudio.com.

-IMO
You also might try the stratos mono signatures. supposedly much better sound much more refinement.
talk to klaus about the extreme mono upgrade.i got mine about a month ago, they replaced a 350wpc amp(carver pm- 350)they have more bass and a lot more oomph-but still have great detail.or have klause set you up with symphonic amps.
Try the PS Audio HCA-2. No more powerful, at least on paper, but definately more refined, resolving, dynamic, much more harmonically rich, esquisitly detailed yet smooth and offering a bigger soundstage, overall simply more exciting and fun to listen to. You could even try biamping with 2 of them, and definately use a Lab II pc with them as well, saddly, it's not optional....
AMPZILLA!
