I was thinking about adding a power amp to my system, ive had a wee look on the auction sight, caspian m1 power amps are quite pricey, i was thinking about buying a kandy power amp and using it for the bass, do you guys think that would be ok or should i really try and bag the more expensive caspian power amp?

Yes, it would be okay, however, I don't think adding an extra box will solve your problem. If you're lacking bass then I'd focus my attentions on either speakers or source - or even a Caspian power amp.

Except the Kandy and Caspian are different sonically, so mixing them might not be the ideal thing to do.

And a different gain?

I think my system sounds to safe, i can listen to it for hours without fatigue, the problem is that this is my first dac source based system, i have had weaker amps and speakers with good cd players that have sounded better than this, ie- nad c352, arcam cd192, b&W CM2, that system wipes the floor with what i have now, i am using a mf v dac 2 with a mf v-psu 2 power supply, i mostly stream spotify and listen to wav with i -tunes, i always thought that files with a dac is the same quality or near a cdp at the at price, what my system lacks is space between notes, that blackness of seperation, maybe i need to buy a cd player or maybe the mf dac isnt good enough, where am i going wrong?

iTunes with Windows? It won't be close to CD quality. The Caspian is hardly "safe" sounding so something's not right, although it depends what mods you have done to the amp.
