Strongly considering Harbeth Compact 7's and would be upgrading my amp as well....I'm curious if anyone who has heard more than one of these in the same system can opine on differences. I've heard from some it doesn't matter what amp you pair them with but experience tells me there's more to that... Looking for an integrated and will buy pre-owned so I will not be listening before buying. I'm seeking/waiting out deals where I won't get bit too hard if I don't like what I buy--I've done this before to great success so expect with the brands below I can do the same here. I listen to mostly jazz (classic blue note/prestige and fusion) but also a fair amount of classic/indie rock, blues, reggae, and classical. Right now I listen 90% vinyl and 10% digital but I expect this could change over time. To give an indication of preferences, my cart is a soundsmith MIMC which ended the search for me--the perfect mix of detail and warmth which is how I like my music. Budget is $2000-$3500 but would like to get value here...top of budget means longer time before I address other needs. I'm considering: LFD Mk V--have heard of good synergy of course with the Harbeth LFD NCSE--is this a dramatic step up beyond the Mk V? The price is but with buying used it's more “reasonable” Luxman 505u--read about this being a good mix of warmth and detail Rogue Cronus Magnum---not sure I want tubes right now (small kids) but have heard good things McIntosh--uncertain on models frankly but always had my eye on a MAC4100. Otherwise an integrated like a 6300/5200/something else Appreciate everyone's thoughts!
