My set contains:

CD: Meridian 206B (1991)
Ampl.: Audio Innovations Classic 25 (=Audio Innovations 700) (1994)
Speakers: Epos ES-11 (1991)
Interlink: VandenHul D 102 mk 2
Sp. cables: MIT Terminator 3
Acousticcs: Rather bare room with wooden floor

My problem cosists of 2 things. I have a lot of sibilance (sharp s-es), and also i have lack of bass.

I tried modifying the amp, but that gave me even more sharpness.

Which component should i change ? I don't want to change the acoustics because I like the interior very much the way it is. I don't want very deep bass, only a bit more and strong. Are bigger speakers like the Epos ES-14, B + W 805 matrix, Kef 104-2 a good idea (all of them second-hand). Or should i change my amp to a mosfet or an Audiolab 8000-a ? This should give a less pronounced mid.
I like the soundstage my set gives me.
