Here is how I am making my decision:....
I just got new interconnects to try, so next is source, But it is an interesting question.
I sent my amp (Balanced Singlepower Extreme Black gate output caps etc) out to some one (I trust and respect here on head-fi) to look at,, to make sure it is safe (we all know the issues) He found a few things that were "head scratching wrong". I got it back and it sounds great!! Then I got the new HD 800, added a Moon Audio Blue Dragon cable. Wow!! I have been going through my CD collection faster then a hungry rabbit through a bundle of carrots. To me it is what I have been looking for. Now which is the weakest link? Tuff call, I had BlueJeans interconnects so that was easy our head-fi friendly dealer Drew (Moon Audio shameless plug) to the rescue, lent me a set of XLR Black Dragon interconnects, to try and to use at our up coming meet here in DC.
So I say source
because I think I can get my money out of my current source "Meridian G 08" and the Singlepower amp is worthless in the used market today. I believe that the amps. that have been gone through and have been made right and safe will eventually come back up to fair market price but who knows?. So that is making my decision for me.
