Advice: amp and speakers for low volumes
Looking to get a new amp and set of speakers.
The consensus seems to be an amp from the Cambridge 640, Marantz 6002 or NAD 352, and speaks from either B&W 685/6, KEF IQ5 or Cambridge S30.
As I live in a London flat the system is going to get played at low to med volumes and the speakers are not going to have much room, probably against a sidewall. Music which will get played will range from classical to rock/ pop and soul, but will not include base heavy dance genres.
I have 2 questions:
1) Do any of the above options match my requirements or are not suitable ? I read the IQ5s are not sensitive to positioning.
2) Where in London can I go to demo some combinations ?
Thanks for you help in advance
