Hi, just to walk you guys through my equipment. I currently have the following setup: plasma TH42pw6 Mission 780 fronts Kef Q6c Kef compact rears Kef psw 2500 sub QED sub cable SD9500 Toshiba dvd player connected to plasma via component Yamaha A2 Amp speaker cables for fronts and ctr QED original Pioneer DVR530H dvd recorder with 160gig hdd. Arcam Alpha 6 dc player connected to Yam via monstor interconnects Now i don't think i can improve the video side of things and i'm more than pleased with the performance. But the audio doesn't quite seem to come up to Arcam standards. Any help if changing the amp for say an arcam would give me best of both worlds or is the extra cash for another amp Vs improvements negligable so mabe to an hard working guy better left in the pocket?
