I use a Technics SA-EX140 and it's boring me to hell. Low frequencies (like explosions in movies) sound horrible! Short: Need to replace it.
This is what I need:
At least 1x RCA in (two would be great)
At least 1x Optical in
At least 1x Digital in
This is what I use it for:
85% music (Jazz, Rock, Classical, Pop)
5% video games
This is what I like:
Punchy but not overpowered bass
I'd like to keep the price as low as possible, but I will take a look into anything you can recommend me that will fulfill my needs.
Eventually I will also replace my old quadral speakers.
Is there even any amp that can drive headphones well? I'd usually prefer a headphone amp/DAC combo but sometimes (20%) my wife wants in on the fun, so... ;)
