I need your help: I’m thinking about my amp.
I’m building my speakers. These: https://www.visaton.de/en/products/2-way-speakers/alto-ii
My dac is an Allo Boss and I have an oooooooold Marantz amp. This one: https://insidehifi.blogspot.com/2013/10/marantz-pm-43-74pm4302b.html
1-Do you think it’s more preferable I build (yes I want to build it) a new amp, or can I just build a pre-amp? This amp works very well so if it’s possible I’d like to keep using it.
2-Which amp or pre-amp do you recommend me?
*I’m not scared about soldering but I am not very reassured at the idea of starting from a simple assembly plan and having to find all the parts by myself. I would prefer a kit. I have nothing to make a PCB so…
**About price range: The best value for less than 100€ (by not taking into account the housing, cables… Just the AMP/Pre-AMP and its PSU).
***I don’t want to add a card directly on my boss player. It will be in a separate case with its own PSU.
****(EDIT): I adjust the volume via Volumio. The volume of the amp remains fixed (more or less).
Many thanks for your help!
