Mixing Old and New - Which Order???
Posted by: Greg Beatty on 14 August 2000
The issue is, if I upgrade to the new stuff, say the 112 or 170 or whatever replaces the 82 and 250 (!), WHICH ORDER do I do it in? I suspect this will be an issue for many forum contributors and lurkers.
The new stuff is reputed to be wider bandwidth, and the "old" stuff was bandwidth limited to prevent the "old" amps from oscillating. If this is so, then would I be "wrong" to replace my 72 with a higher bandwidth 112 - thus feeding a wider bandwidth signal to my 140??? Or is this not an issue???
Assuming there are no compatibility issues, like bandwidth problems, then WHICH do I replace first? And, would the 112 and 170 be a significant enough upgrade to be worth doing? I am loath, with the product line changing, to upgrade to more "old" style equipment. I could be convinced if the 82 or 250 were bargain priced.
And I AM keeping my eyes open for a 2nd hand CDX or CDS1, so I will save you the trouble of telling me to replace the CD3 first
Oh, and the info above about bandwidth limiting and such is based on my limited understanding of things that I have gleaned from the Forum. If any is simply, well, WRONG, then please tell me so
