Amp for rock?
I am starting to get a better understanding of the hifi mine-field, but have a couple of further questions before I buy.
First: being a bit of a rock/metal nut, which amp/speaker combination would give best depth? (At this point I should add that my significant other prefers twiddly twiddly stuff e.g. Athlete, Travis etc! and probably won't want to be drowned in base!!
Second: I've read that larger, floor standing speakers give better base/sound. Is this true? Are there any smaller speakers that match up?
So far I'm considering the Cambridge Audio Azur340A, the NAD C315BEE and the Marantz PM4001 linked up to either the Monitor Audio Bronze BR2s, the Maudant-Short Avant 902is or the Wharfedale Diamond 9.1s.
Any thoughts or recommendations?
