I was listening to some classical music over the weekend and I find the one thing my system doesn't seem to perform well with, is classical music. I don't know why, I am quite pleased with it's general performance (for the level it is at) with other music such as Travis, Maroon5 and more acoustic stuff. It seems to project this type of music better. I know my CD player is only a lower end model and in the new year I will take the plunge and upgrade to a new cd player and add a power amp (if I think the performance will greatly improve). The thing is that classical music just seems flat and uninvolving. It doesn't project and fill the room like I want it to and therefore does not give anything like a "live" sound. The soundstage is narrow and there is no depth to the music. Other music does project better but not greatly. There's nothing wrong with the sound, it does sound clear and better than any other all in one system I've heard, but I want a more lifelike experience from my Cd's. What I want to know is, if I upgrade to the FMJ CD33 and add a P90 to bi-amp the A85 I have, will this "unleash" the music and really give the "live" sound I want, or should I be looking at something else?? I keep hearing about the latest Cyrus CD8 and Cyrus 8 amp which doesn't seem to put a foot wrong and seems to offer an endless upgrade potential. Thing is, I love my Arcam stuff and I don't want to have to change unless I really have to. The point is though, for the money I am paying for a dedicated audio only set up, I want "real 3D" sound....I want that band or orchestra in my living room! Will I get that if I take the plunge with the CD33 and P90???? If anyone has a CD33 and similar amplification, I would appreciate your views. Do you feel you get an honest performance from your setup? Regards, Jason.
