Separate amp and pre-amp vs. an A/V receiver?
Will the sound be better using these separate components with good speakers than using a fairly expensive A/V receiver? I am still debating a total upgrade of my stereo system and wondered if I should go all the way. I currently have a good Onkyo A/V and CD changer but, as mentioned, have been thinking of giving up my old B&Ws for new and more expensive speakers. But if my Onkyo can't provide the best amplification then would I be wasting my time with new speakers?
