Exactly as the title says. i already have a dac and good source etc. What i need is an amp (integrated or not idc) and a great set of speakers. What's really important to me is sound stage, good but not boomy bass, and no distortion. It doesnt have to be perfectly flat, i sometime enjoy slightly emphasized bass and treble. I currently have a pair of aktimate mini's and i can honestly say i love them to death. But i'd like something bigger for when im in the mood. the aktimates have i believe 5.5 in. woofers. I'd like something closer to 8. I was looking at a pair of Adam A8x bookshelves which i've heard great things about. I'm just trying to get an idea if i can do better for that kind of money though. I think i'm mainly looking at bookshelves because i currently don't have a big enough room for floor standers. Still feel free to throw out any set up though. I've also been curious about surround sound systems, but i don't know much of how to set up hi-fi surround sound for under 2k. SO bottom line! i needa good speaker and amp combo for under $2000. Whatever the best money can get in that price range is, i wanna know. thanks in advance OCN!
