I am a "long time reader...first time poster" (why I've waited this long to participate is beyond me), so first off I would like to thank everyone here for providing the best home entertainment resource I am yet to come across. The information I've read from here along with audioreview have guided me on practically all of the purchases I have made so far, and so far I have been thrilled with each one. Anyway, 'tis the season once again, and there's nothing quite like giving yourself a little something for being a good boy all year. My problem is (if you can call it a problem ) that I'm not sure what to do next. My system currently consists of : Sony 36" XBR 400 Denon AVR 3300 Paradigm Studio 80 mains Paradigm Studio CC Paradigm Studio 20 rears Paradigm PW2200 Sony DVP-S7700 Denon DCM 360 5 disc changer Sony A-50 Satellite Receiver and a dust collecting Sony VCR with mix Kimber and Straight Wire cables. Roughly 50/50 music to HT use At first I was thinking an amp, since I've heard Studio speakers sound far better than mine do, but after using a Classé CA-151(150w x 2) in house for a while (only amp my local shop had for demo at the time), I was underwhelmed with the 2 channel performance in my Studio 80's over my AVR 3300. My setup is in my bedroom for the next few months, and the room is an acoustic nightmare. I was thinking maybe the poor performance was due to the room, or perhaps my expectations were just too high. My local HT store recommended a Classé CAV-75 (75 x 6) and to bridge the channels to power my front speakers. I thought this was a little peculiar, with amps from Parasound and Rotel receiving such high praise, especially with Paradigm speakers, but I'm just an amateur, so what do I know . In addition to an amplifier, I've also been pondering things such as a Denon AVR 4802, progressive scan DVD player, new CD player(I find myself using the 7700 for most of my music listening for now), and or an all in one remote of some sort(I think I'm a hard button fan) . I'm hoping to stay in the $1,500 - $2,000 range. If anyone has any input, recommendations or experience with anything that would help, or put the biggest smile on my face after setting it up, please let me know. Looking forward to any feedback, and thanks in advance!
