Afternoon all, I picked up an Arcam A18 and a pair of Tannoy v4s last week and though it sounds good, and represents a considerable step up from my comical old kit, I do find the A18 a little 'unengaging'. I see from forum chat and reviews that the A28 and A38 are more engaging with better stereo imaging, more clarity and generally a better experience, but wonder whether my v4s might be a little below par for such a step up in the amp department? I have decent-ish interconnects and biwired the speakers, and am listening to an old Cam Audio CDP. I'm not a purist in any way shape or form, hence not looking for a subtle improvement (for example, I may miss the tone controls on the A28 and A38 if I do upgrade, as I tend to use them when listening at low volumes) but do feel the current set up, especially on low volumes (<40/72 on the dial) does sounds a little lifeless. I'm listening to a wide range of house, guitar-stuff, soul and jazz. So, assuming the A28 or A38 would give me my required 'amp improvement', would my v4's be sufficiently decent pieces of kit for me to appreciate this improvement? Many thanks indeed for any thoughts.
