I am pretty new to digital music having used Vinyl until 1994 and pretty much nothing except cheap computer speakers since then.
I have Just invested in the following.
Yamaha RX V3800 receiver.
Creek evolution Cd Player
Monitor Audio RX1 Speakers Fronts
Vector V10 rears
Paradigm DSP 3400 Sub
I love the sound I am getting now however I have been advised that if I added a Valve DAC to the Mix between the CD and Amp my sound would be warmer richer and a whole lot closer to Vinyl without the clinical CD Sound etc
Listen to mainly Classical guitar, Jazz and Old Style. Rock Deep purple etc with the occasional symphony or concerto thrown into the mix
Any opinions good or bad and what would your recomendations be
Budget Would be around $1000-1500
