Im working on upgrading my my two channel system. I currently am running a mchk38 bridged only to my kef r-900's (these will be upgraded this summer to the kef reference 5s)
I really like the sound of my mchk38, but almost everyone told me its a very nice sounding amp but its not as powerfull as it should be (this was told directly to me from people from other forums who had the amp).
I discovered this for myself as it was clear that my emotiva xpa2-gen2 in stereo could get my speakers hitting you with impactfull bass way beyond anything the k38 bridged could do. Don't get me wrong both amps go to loud
. Also the overal sound qualitly of the k38 is in a whole different league and turned my emotiva into a heavy paper weight.
But when im in the mood to run my system hot on the bottom end and listen to somthing like Janelle Monáe – Make Me Feel....... Well I wish I could have the sound quality of the k38 (or better) with the impact of the emotiva.
I know the mcx-1 is upgrade from the k38 but Im having a hard time justifing buying them over my k38. And I really don't want to do a bunch of small upgrades. Is this a good asumption?
I feel the evo amps would be a decent upgrade in sound quality, but im leary that they may not have enough power, or am I just focusing on specs to much and overlooking somthing.
