Hi everyone. I'm just starting my audiophile journey. I'm a very happy owner of a dda-120 a pair of Roger's ls3/5a that I got for my wedding.
For my unexisting experience I quite like what I hear.
Because the Roger's are low sensitivity (83db I guess) and high impedance (15Ohm) i guess they are rather underpowered though.
I tried my speaker with a modern A/B amp from Quad and I definitely missed the speed and definition of the dda-120.
I was pushing the trigger on the ida-8 then I read the above post from Jason. I would like to use my turntable as my preferred source. Do you think going with a DAC-9/STA-9 also help me with the speakers? I have stretch a bit my budget, but I was thinking that maybe in a few months I could eventually pair it with a second STA-9 to run the as monoblocks.
I listen mostly to funk music, jazz, and classic rock. Sometimes to classical and electronics but I guess the extra warmth of the *9 stack should suit my tastes.
Can anyone advise on this?
