Budget Amps and speakers for a starting point.
After much thought I have finally decideed that I want to go the seperates route as my first experience of Hi-Fi but on a budget - for now (Buying a PS4 so have to be sensible). I am planning to get a nice little budget hifi set up for a year or two and then upgrade at a later date. I have set a budget of around £350 for an amp and a set of speakers. It will be used for music listening only in a small bedroom so im guessing i dont need to splash out too much
The Amps I have in mind are the Cambridge Audio Azur 351A and the Yamaha AS500. The reason for this is because they seem to tick most of the boxes im looking for. The Cambridge looks interesting because of the built in DAC and USB connection but doesnt have as much power as the Yamaha (still a newbie so im guessing the more power the better?) The Yamaha also has a subwoofer connection which is very appealing, although ive heard mixed reviews about this amp.
Now for the speakers, my choices are between the Wharfedale 9.1, Tannoy V1, Cambridge s30, Q acoustic 2010i or at a push the monitor audio BX1.
Can anyone point me in the right direction here ideally they should have adequate bass although i know not to expect too much from budget speakers. like i said its mostly for music listening of all genres in my bedroom at my desk. Will be listening to audio from my pc or iphone. I will eventually get a CD player to go with this system but not at this moment in time.
Thanks in advance guys hope someone can recommend something!
