I'm pondering whether to replace my BK XLS 400 subwoofer connected to a NAD C356BEE amp wih an REL Subwoofer. It's working well but I had an old REL Stadium 1 which I gave away as it took too much space - it had that special low oomph, although at times it was woolly, the BK doesn't seem to pump that low but the bass is tight and controlled. It's for music only. There's a used REL R528 on E -Bay. Will it be an improvement over the BK or just a side-step? Thank you all for any replies.

Sold my Beautiful ATC SCM11s - sad to see them go but the chap who brought them is really pleased.

Yamaha RX-A3050 - sold also to a good home

Hegel H360 - New Owner has just recieved it and setting it up right now. Was very sad to see the Hegel go - was sort of attached to it but it had to go for reasons important to me.

So now i start from stratch

I'm expecting great things just by following previous little titbits of information you've allow to filter out.

Hope it all comes together well, and sooner rather than much later as it's hard with no equipment at hand.

Cheers will fill in the gaps soon as possible.
Ja its kak without something to use but i really needed to rid myself of the hegel due to no fault of the amp.

new Benchmark could be making an appearance. I'm on the edge of my seat! I'd love to spend someone else's money, even virtually, but for real would be better. ;-)

I gathered the Hegel departed with heavy heart but when new toys arrive it will be forgotten but for the best of times you shared together. ;-)

4 contenders so far and the benchmark is one of them. Preamps, dacs, streamers are all in the running. Have you heard of martix x sabre pro? Nice pre-amp/dac. With top spec.
Ive also been looking at bryston and emotiva.

I also have a good contact for a hegel h20 preamp but for the money and what it does is a little expensive also.

I dont want to talk speakers until i have them. There are also about 5 or 6 different options.
but i really like the benchmark next week will tell and maybe some earphones also.

Hi Andrew,

I just looked up the Matrix X Sabre Pro, wow love the styling first off! Specs I'm sure equally impressive, will look into that properly later.

Your future system is a step or two at least up from mine, so I can only image how good it willl sound once compiled. Read nothing but good things about the Benchmark here and elsewhere. I also like the pro type, no nonsense styling, although it's a case of beauty and the beast compared to the Matrix. That's a stunner, my take on HIFI porn!

I had my heart set on the Mytek Brooklyn and was saving toward it, then I became interested in the Emotiva XSP-1 after reading one of your posts. The Emotiva had everything and more I wanted out of a pre-amp/central core to my system but I was concerned having to order directly from the States.

Anyway, things changed, budget was lowered and I've a nice little Oppo HA-1 and despite having a few initial hiccups it's seriously good (within my system, coupled with my crap speakers) I just need to sort sout ome form of streamer as I'm missing my old Yamaha WXC-50. That was a breeze to use and great little component despite the relatively cheap price. Oh and a headphone upgrade is absolutely essential now, the headphone amp section is superb and most evenings I'm plugged in

I look forward to hearing of any progress regarding the system build.
