Usher Mini Dancer 2 Speakers
I've got a pair of Usher Mini Dancer 2 speakers driven by a Rotel Amp - Model 1582 (200 watts X2) and a Rotel Preamp - Model RC=1580. I use either a Rotel CD Player (Model RCD-1520), an Oppo Universal Player or my VPI Scoutmaster turntable for vinyl. Speaker cables are MIT AVt 2 Bi-wire, MIT interconnects and Shunyata Venom 3 power cords.
So here's my problem - the speakers sound good but not as good as I remember they were when auditioning them 2 years ago. I was thinking of trading up the amp and preamp. Anyone have suggestions on which electronics to consider? Any opinions on the Parasound Halo JC 2 Preamp and A21 Amp (250 watts X 2) as a solution to my dilema. Chris Martens, I seem to recall that you're familiar with the speakers, having reviewed them when they first came out. Perhaps you have some special insight.
Thanks for the help.
