Presently my Dynaudios are running on a CA 540 azure amp. Seems fine but I know it can get better. Options include:

1. Replacing CA with entirely new 5.1 setup
2. Adding 5 channel power amp behind CA
3. Adding 2 channel power amp behind CA and letting CA drive center and surrounds

Options in the amps are:
ADCOM 7606 7 channel 37k used
Primare 2 channel 30.2 new demo 70k
Quad 909 56k online or little more through dealer
Arcam Diva 1lac (would replace CA)
Arcam 600 (2.5 lacs) (dont really wanna spend so much)
Bryston Power amp (also over my ever changing budget)

Please give me your precious opinions. I will hopefully get to test all.

Thanks

I find that the CA might not be throwing out the best mids. I was primarilty upgrading cause I thought that I am not getting the most out of my speakers. This weekend I auditioned a Primare 30.2 and found that my CA actually sounded better. More mellow and not as bright and loud....

So at this point Im actually in 2 minds about the upgrade. Will only do so if I get something way sweeter sounding.
