First of all, specs of my current system 1 pair Paradigm Studio 20's SVS 20-39CS+ with Samson 1000 Denon 3802 HTPC setup with Audigy Platinum (i use optical) * Audigy will soon be replaced by an M-Audio Revolution It's upgrade time again. With my current setup, I have concluded that the logical upgrade that i would see the most sonic improvement is adding a two channel amp. I don't have the time nor resources to drive around and audition different kinds of amps. I've turned to forums such as this (and others of course) to help me in choosing the right amp for my Studio 20's. I spoke to Klaus (Odyssey amp main man) over the phone and he said that the synergy between my Paradigm's and the Stratos is excellent. My basis for trust is klaus is the almost 'cult' following of Odyssey over at Harmonic Discord and Audio Circle. I also consider Audioreview as something to add to his credibility but i treat some of the stuff written over there with skepticism. Bottom line is i'm not quite satisfied with the 2-chanel performance of my current setup. There's no "wow factor" in my setup when it comes to midrange of highs. I'm expecting this amp to bring new life to my setup or in other words, an absolute transformation.
