I took a 6 month hiatus away from Head-Fi and it feels damn good to be back! The last time I was here you guys convinced me to get the A5's and I have never looked back. So, I need help one more time for you all to point me in the right direction.
I absolutely adore my A5's. The crispness of the highs and smooth mids have left me impressed every single time I turn them on. The only problem I have right now is that my dads old Polkaudio speakers hooked up to a Luxman R-115 (which many believe is one of the better music recievers made in the past 25 years!) that absolutely destroyed the soundstage and clarity that I thought I had in my A5's. Don't get me wrong the A5's still kick the crap out of anyone elses speakers i've listened to but my dad being a semi-audiophile, honesty those speakers seriously rock!
I understand that powered speakers have their limitations and that going to passive speakers with a good reciever is probably the best route. With that being said, what would you recommend without killing my wallet whether that be powered or passive speakers with a reciever.
FYI, right now I use my MBP > Musiland 06 > A5's.
P.S. I didn't know whether to post this in the Computer Audio forum or here. Sorry if its wrong!
