Hi All, My current system of:

CA 650A

CA 540C V2

MA RX1

Laptop - Pro-ject USB DAC

seems to be too clinical, a little shrill and I no longer enjoy listening to it.

What should I look at upgrading first to warm / smooth the sound some? It has the same signature sound whether playing CD or Lossless file, so I am guessing its the amp / speaker combo? It's been in several rooms / positions with no real sonic change - any ideas?

I live in Cape Town, South africa so not all options available...

Cheers Ant

For me the C/A amps have always had that 'clinical' sound; however their CDP's seem to do a better job!

IMO the likes of the NAD C326BEE integrated or the Arcam FMJ A18 integrated amp would be a good move

Grottyash:Amp and speakers.

Dont agree with that at all

The M/A RX1 speakers are superb and will withstand a number of upgrades (amp, CDP, cables etc...)

It would be handy to know what cables the OP is using; the M/A RX1 speakers are much better with the likes of Chord Carnival Silverscreen or the likes etc... Any silver plated cables will make them sound a bit bright at times!
