Beginner's hi-fi setup - any thoughts?
Over the next 2-3 months or so, I intend to buy the following set-up...
Tannoy Mercury V1s
Cambridge Audio Azur 551P/651P Phono Stage
That's about all my budget can afford. I'd be really grateful if you guys could throw some advice at me, in particular regarding these three questions.
1. Are there any changes you'd make to that? For example, any speakers available for the same price which are better value etc.?
2. The Phono stage - does anyone know if the 651P is worth the extra £40-£50 stepping up from the 551P? Are there better alternatives altogether?
3. The Denon should do the job of the amp nicely ( I think), but would it be better adding a dedicated amp? That may be a stupid question but I'm a relative beginner, so go easy!
