    I'm very happy with my system but upgrading is all part of the fun - where should I be going next with my system ?

    Meridian 500 CD Transport

    Tag McLaren DAC20

    Tag McLaren 60i amp

    Tag Mclaren 60p power amp (bi amped with 60i)

    B&W CDM 1NT's on B&W stands

    REL Strata II

    Lat International speaker cable and interconnects

    Russ Andrews power leads


    Was thinking of another 60p but perhaps new amplification all together is needed ??

    Thanks

    Change the 60i with the 60IRV, or the Tag pre-amp only add a another 60P or replace the 60P with two 100P's.

    Joking aside,IMHO the best thing you could do would be to upgrade the power amps,and not from the Tag line-up.....I'm very happy with the Tag processor i have,but their power amps generally lack control and power,and that's based on my experience of their higher powered multichannel amps.
    I'm quite vikki and Steph would recommend some of the Rotel amps(as would I in their price range)or alternatively looking for some really good,older pre-owned amps....you occasionally find Krell KSA50's or similar at very good prices....don't be put off by the age or apparent 50W power ratings as these will deliver up to 400W into 1ohm loads.
    The CDM1NTs are quite a nasty load as regards impedance and reactance,and can trouble Tag amps.

    There is a Bryston 4B-ST offered on Loot at the moment.

    Krell amp is very serious piece but Bryston is not much behind.

    Anyway, I'll see you tomorow and if you have time you can listen to my system. Bring your favourite CD's.
