I want to upgrade from my AudioEngine A5s with S8 sub to a more HiFi speaker system. I'm not sure if I'd be better off creating my own system with an amp, external dac, passive speakers, sub... or looking for another active system like the A5s.
The speakers will be used in my bedroom with my Mac Pro. I'd prefer to use on my desk but stands are a possibility. Most listening will be done within a few feet from the speakers.
Here are the two options I've come up with but any other ideas would be greatly appreciated!
ADM9T with Sub
B&W 685 (maybe CM1 but these are rear vented and might not work close to a wall)
B&W ASW610 sub
NAD c355bee amp
Is anyone experienced with the AVI ADM9T system? How would the soundstage, clarity, volume, etc compare with the B&W bookshelf setup?
Thanks so much for any input!!!
