Right, I've very recently bought a whole plethora of home cinema equipment which I'm very pleased with. When it came to buying the receiver and speakers, I had to compromise slightly for space reasons, but I bought the best I heard in my price range for music, as my setup is used about 50/50 music/movie. Anyway, as you can see in my sig, I have the Monitor Audio Radius range, R270 floorstanders as fronts, R225 centre and R90s for the rears. The Yamaha RX-V1500 was purchased because of the balance in performance on movies and music. All music is now listened to through a Pioneer DV575 universal player. So my question now is, if I want my next purchase to give me the the biggest improvement for music reproduction, which would be the best option? A - a dedicated CD player feeding into the RX-V1500 or B - the current Pioneer feeding into a dedicated music only amp? Now obviously the ultimate aim is to buy a dedicated CD player and dedicated amp, but which of these two options will yield the highest initial gain, assuming I couldn't afford to buy both at the same time? Also, how would I go about hooking up the fronts to both the receiver and the music amp? Thanks for any help.
