    To be honest if I had £1500 to spend it would be on replacing your speakers and a nice amp to drive them.

    The Sedley is a very good phono stage but your amp is letting it down.

    I would suggest you go for a better amp and with your budget you can get something decent.

    Ok, I appreciate the feedback. Any other suggestions on alternative amps ?

    Thanks

    Guess the first thing to decide is valve or SS.
    ďMusic has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of fuel. Sentimental people call it inspiration, but what they really mean is fuel. I have always needed fuel. I am a serious consumer. On some nights I still believe that a car with the gas needle on empty can run about fifty more miles if you have the right music very loud on the radioĒ

    I was contemplating getting a passive preamp with stepped attenuator so would then need to look at a new power amp If the Arcam is below par.

    Not meaning to sound rude, but no amp, not a Krell or anything else is going to make MA GS20s sound anything other than the wallpaper strippers that they are to my ears.

    If you haven’t already, I’d spend some time at bake offs having a listen to how other speakers present music. If you already have and you’ve chosen the GS20s then we have very different ears!

    I've not heard the GS20's but was thinking on getting a pair of PL300 mkii to upgrade to from my pair of MA PMC 705's as i've been so taken with the sound and reproduction

    Each to their own I guess. I’ve always enjoyed the Monitor Audio sound ��
