I know the Play5s will give better bass and more volume but, what about the quality of mid-range and the upper end at modest volumes?
The Play1s do well in that regard but, how do the Play5s compare to the Play1s?
The reason I ask is I am putting together a 2ch music system and can go with Play1s and a sub for bass extension. Otherwise I could go with Play5s and add a sub later, if I find I want to. If the Play1s best the Play5s in the mids and highs I would go that way.
Cost is not a big factor. I am selling off my current stereo system which will pay for either way I go.
BTW, my current setup is:
Connect for streaming
Nuprime IDA8 integrated (100w/ch) ... serving as DAC and amp
a pair of Stirling SB-88 speakers
