Musing about a new amp.
Wondering about a new amp. Currently using my upgraded claymore with a dac and Harbeth p3esrs. It’s all hunky dory but for one thing. I have just sent a Garrard 301 to Loricraft for a service, plinth and new arm. I’ll be using an mc cart when it eventually arrives. As my claymore only has an mm phono stage, I had thought to get a new amp. I picked up a cheap, new quad elite power amp and have some money down on the pre that matches it, but that’s taking ages to arrive. It may come at some point but I’ve had long enough to change my mind ten times. I’m wondering whether I should either try a q20 pre or sell the lot and by a claymore retro. The Oberon looks great but it’s underpowered for the purposes of my Harbeths. M50s would be nice but out of my price range given the my arguably insane decision to go to town on my 301. Too many moving parts to this decision-help!
