    need your advice guys

    My system at the moment includes

    Amp - Marantz 7200
    CD Player - Marantz CD63 MKII KI
    Turntable - Project Debut II
    Speakers - Acoustic Energy Aesprit 309's Floorstanders

    Im thinking about upgrading but not sure what to upgrade. I am a student so on a limited budget but I would like to know what you gurus would suggest and why

    The amp is the thing i think i should upgrade however im not sure what to?

    Also I have a mixture of interconnects on my system, is it best to have them all the same make?

    If you start on that path it will probably get expensive and you may not see the benefits for some time.
    You upgrade one thing, you won't hear the benefits until you upgrade the rest.

    At the moment i'd say it's reasonably well balanced. So start at the source and work towards the speakers.
