New to the upgrade path
And as I learn more the question has changed with it the option on what I could do

Of course that would happen or there wouldn't be much point asking the original question Wink
But all the facts is better than some, so best to keep it in the same thread. Hell, if every tangent spawned a new thread it wouldn't be a 'thread' anymore Wink

People who join in, most anyway, will read the previous answers, and we are all used to opinions changing because of new information.
So if your changes, just add it below and we'll continue with that.


If you want to keep upgrading your setup, it might be useful to buy an upgradable device, so not a renew.
On the other hand, you could try to sell your old renew the moment a newer one becomes available. I have no idea which path would be cheaper on the long run.
It also depends on your age and funds and priorities.

A lot of people on this forum are 60plus, so they're on the verge of extinction where I will have to take into account that things I buy will probably fail before I do.
This is not really relevant to the topic, but I wanted to startle the oldtimers, that is good for their health if done moderately. So it is a public service I provide. Wink

Back to topic - if it were me I'd either upgrade the ADSM or spend a little more for a 2nd-hand KDS/0 (or even /1). Renew isn't on my radar.

So 49 must mean I can have an opinion but it's wrong.... Wink

I had to look up impetuous, but sure, I'm impetuous being only 47.

I'd opt for the ADS option as well, or rather ADSM as I want my turntable to benefit from SPACE optimisation as well.
So it is probably best that I did get an ADSM. Smile

RE: upgarde from akurate/0 to latest akurate vs Klimax ds/1 renew
IMHO go for the renew KDS/1 (if it is a renew). The Renew's are phenomenal VFM.

From personal experience the KDS's are so much better sounding than the accurate range. Get rid of your pre if you don't need inputs, or keep it if you do.

Simples.
