Here’s my predicament…my current setup is a set of new Monitor Audio Silver 300’s, a Bluesound Node 2 playing Tidal HiFi, and a NAD 326bee integrated amp (50w x 2). My associated equipment is a PS Audio Duet, PS Audio Power Port Classic, and Audioquest wiring (power cables, interconnects, speaker cable).
I am wanting to upgrade my amplification, but am stuck on what path to take. I understand the M700’s are very likely the best way to go, but I’m wondering just how much improvement in my set-up they would be over something like the S300.
My budget is relatively limited as I live on a modest income (firefighter) and am blessed with 6 young kids under the age of 13:) So, if I can get something like the S300 for half the cost of the M700’s and get similar performance, I’m struggling why I would need to save up for a few more years to get the M700’s instead of just enjoying the S300 now. Further, is my system even resolving enough to truly differentiate the difference between the S300 and the M700’s?
FYI, I’m considering getting a PS Audio GCD to drive either one of these setups as well.
Thoughts? Wisdom? Council?
