Recently I am seriously thinking to upgrade my system. I seem like having 2 options as following and would like to seek your professional advise in which to go.

My Existing Set-up:

Marantz CD 7300 Player
QED Q3 Interconnect
Primare I20 Int. Amp.
QED Plus Bi-Wired
ProAc Studio 125.

My Upgrade Options :

(1) Upgrade my Marantz CD 7300 to Primare CD 20 Series; OR
(2) Add Richard Gray Power Co. 400 into my existing set-up.

I would like to know the sonic improvement i will get from each of the above upgrade and also your personal opinion which is the best i shold go for.

Your advise urgently needed.

I have absolutely no opinion on this but do find it humorous that most of the adds I viewed on the RGP products suggest you daisy chain several together for greater improvement (what a way to sell to the perceived market!). Doesn't this just say that each unit is only 'partially' conditioning your power. If I wanted to spend several hundred dollars of hard earned cash on a product, I'd want it to completely condition. Likewise, maybe you could just daisy chain several $50 conditioners and save. snark.
