Headphones because of small room
The only place I have to setup my hi-fi is in the box room (7' x 7') due to kids etc. I've come to the conclusion that this is going to be impossible with speakers (or maybe not?). I was just about to despair when I thought... hmm... headphones!!
My system is Townshend Avalon with OM10 MC cartridge, I'm aiming to buy a valve amp this time, probably a Puresound SA30, with P10 phono stage and eventually add a suitable CD player. Ilisten to all sorts of music but mainly rock/live recordings e.g. Foo Fighters, Pink Floyd, AC/DC etc.
Any views ? suggestions on headphones or even speakers ? I reckon by the time I get a chair in there I'd be about 4' from the speakers if I'm lucky which I think is too close for them to work right.
