Amp + CD for KEF R500
Long time reader here, first time poster
I just bought some KEF R500, and I'm looking for an amp and CD player. For the amp, I do not enjoy sound when it is too warm/soft, I prefer something more upfront. Also for me it is very important for the amp to be able to have the bass tight ans well controlled. After some research I'm thinking about the Pioneer A-50 (it also appears to have a nice phono MM for my Rega turntable), what I would like to hear your opinions, specially if some of you came across this speakers + amp combination.
For the CD player I'm a bit lost. I thought about pairing the amp with the Pioneer PD-50 or PD-30, but I have not found many reviews and will probably not be able to have a demo.
I have a ~1000€ budget for the CD + amp combination (that's including some nice phono MM, either integrated or separate). What would you recommend for the R500?
