Hi All, I have been working/tinkering on my system for a while and I am looking for some advice for a new amplifier for my main listening room in my lounge. In terms of my current system, I am a Roon subscriber and have a NUC i7 as my Core which serves music from my Synology 918+ NAS across Ethernet to three endpoints (listening rooms) which includes my lounge, office and kitchen. Recently I have been focusing on my lounge where I have updated my main speakers moving from Monitor Audio Bronze 5’s to some lovely PMC Twenty5 22’s after demoing quite a few other speakers (including B&W 704 s2’s, Monitor Audio Gold 200 and Kef R5’s). They are a great speaker and I have moved from floorstanders to a sealed cabinet standmounts due to tricky positioning - e.g. one speaker in front of a bay window. With rear ported speakers, even when bunged, I was getting too much bass. I have also measured my room, taken sound measurements using REW and used a company called Home Audio Fidelity to provide me with some digital correction filters, I load these into HQ Player (which also runs on my NUC) adjusting what is played out of the speakers. This helps massively, primarily with the room. I have added one of two acoustic panels to rear walls but not too many as I still need my other half to talk to me! So, I would like an amplifier to aim for, I am currently using a second hand Musical Fidelity M3i, which was also recommended through these forums. Its a good amp, but ultimately getting a bit long in the tooth. Feeding the amp is a Mytek Liberty DAC fed by an Allo USBridge. I would need any new amp to have home theatre bypass or equivalent as I also run a home theatre 5.1 set-up in the same room. I have really enjoyed tinkering with the house system and hope to do the same with any new amplifier. Demo'ing the speakers was great fun in Sevenoaks in Bristol, they even let me borrow the B&W's and a set of the PMCs to check I got on with them at home. I am quite happy to save up for a while for the amp, and I think it will be with me for a while as I don't see myself changing the speakers. So price-wise, anywhere up to and around £2000. I have never done pre and power amps but I would consider as a solution. In fact, I have wondered about adding a power amp to the current solution but not got much further than that. Thanks for any replies.
