Here's the situation.... I have: Mission 782 - fronts 780 - rears 78c - centre 78as - sub Nad t741 - av Nad t514 - cd Nad t550 - dvd I'm an 80-20 guy music-movie with a love for the round sound of Nad/Arcam/Cambridge audio so none of you denon at a push/marantz/sony whitterings if you please, if I wanted to lsiten to something in a "church" or "hall" effect I'd stick my head in a dustbin and then put on a cd. Please don't tell me my sub etc isn't musical, I like the sound it makes and am happy with my speakers, QED silver anniversary bi-wired all round does the trick. But what is causing me a niggle, are the current offerings from the outside world, damn RS (flameproof jacket and breathing apparatus on) with Cambridge audio 540R and one of their high end dvd, DVD79 etc, and Audio T with their Arcam avr200 and DVD 89/DVD88+ deals. I am aware that my current AV amp is rated at 50 wpc, and the past 10 days off work have really been highlighting this, although I feel the power the amp makes is well above 50wpc, heck sounds more like 70wpc to me, but I'm uncouth so what do I know. This is where my niggle kicks in. Read on intrepid audio enthusiast my ramblings may cease soon. The Arcam offering from Audio-t - avr200 and DVD88+/89 is around 700 quid, with trade in offering for my nad stuff, while RS's offering of the CA 540R and DVD79 is around 500. The CA 540R I've read worry stories concerning 1 second missing from track intro's, dodgy amps blowing up and being returned, but I've read the same about Arcam and Nad, so pinches of salt all round on the build quality/reliability front. Does anyone think I'm mad for trading my Nad stuff in for either of the above setups? Currently the ability to use my cd for music and dvd player for movies makes sense, but what abut the possibility of having a better quality/powered heart to the system offered by either the Arcam avr200 or CA 540R? Would the Arcam DVD88+/89 or CA DVD79 provide me with anything similar to the basic Nad cd I currently have? Or am I better sticking with my multi source setup of cd and dvd and living with the Nad amp until I can afford to step up a bit more than jsut to these Arcam/CA setups? To round off, I love the sound I currently get, but am equaly pleased with the sound the Arcam and CA kit makes too, its a tricky one in my head to justify the effort of changing from Nad to Arcam/CA other than maybe getting a bit more power, but I'm not sure I'll get what I am looking for. Anyone still reading? Anyone got any thoughts?
