    Hello to all,

    I am seeking advice on which upgrade to do first to my system. I am trying to decide whether to get an Ati 1505 amplifier or two CS+ 16-46 SVS subwoofers. They are roughly the same cost.

    My current setup:

    Denon AVR3300 receiver

    Hafler DH500 Amp powering front speakers

    Polk Rta11t front speakers

    Polk CS400 center

    Polk Fx-500i surrounds

    Velodyne CT-150 subwoofer

    Sony DVP-NS900V DVD/SACD

    TOSHIBA SD-5700 DVD/DVD AUDIO

    OUTLAW ICBM

    Room size approx. 5000 cu. feet

    If I go with the subs I would use the Hafler to power them and use the Denon to power the front speakers. I also will probably sell the velodyne reducing the cost of that upgrade. If I go with the amp the Hafler will be set aside until I would get the SVS subs. I guess I am wondering which one of these upgrades will give me the most dramatic improvement to my system. Any advice from all you experts out there will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance, Greg Johnson

    If it were me I'd go for the subs. At least that way you can kind of have your cake and eat it too seeing as you will still have the 3300 to power your speakers. Sell your old sub and put that money towards the new amp.

    My 2 cents
