Best budget/mid price system for badly recorded rock
I listen to a lot of badly recorded rock/punk from the 70's and 80's (think the misfits) and am wondering what brands and combinations thereof would be most suitable for this kind of thing. I can't empahasize enough just how wretched the sound quality of a lot of the albums really is - not that it should matter to the music. Obviosly I'd like to avoid a particularly 'hi-fi' sound, but on the other hand don't want something dull, woolly and boring either. I'm not really into listening to recordings, so is it actually worth spending a considerable amount of money if your taste in music is a little.... unsophisticated? Perhaps a low cost receiver with a budget cdp and speakers would do just as well, but I'm not sure.
(I don't mean to offend but it seems that a majority of hi-fi enthusiasts are people in their 40's or older who tend to like mostely well recorded jazz or classical, vocal, opera etc)
