I want to separate my 2-channel experience from my HT setup and I've recently begun that project. But first, here is a list of what I have at present:
Yamaha HTR-6190B Receiver, Revolver Rebel Red TT with Grado Reference Platinum MM (Moving Iron actually) cartridge, Tonar Vinyline 4189 Phono preamp, PS3 for BD/DVD/CD playback,Totem Sttaf (fronts), Totem Mite-T (centre) and Totem Mite (rears)
My first upgrade is a new MARANTZ TT-15S1 turntable with Clearaudio Virtuoso MM Cartridge (waiting for its arrival from my dealer).My question is this? Should I invest in a better Phono Preamp and make that my next upgrade or look into a 2-Channel Power Amp? I have an extensive vinyl collection (several thousand) and it is my primary source for music listening.
The strongest parts of my gear so far are the Totem speakers and I must admit, I really like them. So, if you have a suggestion regarding amplification, what would be a good match? I listen primarily to Progressive Rock, blues, jazz and female voices with the occasional classical selection.
Thank you so much in advance for any advice and/or opinion.
