I'm back and looking again...
I'm back. Howdy folks
It's ages since I last posted.
Anyways; long story is that the company I worked for (and had invested a fair whack of £££ in (New Media & Defence recruitment specialists) went under 8 weeks ago. I lost a lot of £££ although managed to scrape some back using the Government and solicitors and finally got the redundancy and final salary I was due.
Started a new role 5 weeks ago and also sold my 2 cars (Integra DC5 and a highly tuned Civic EG6 with a K20 engine conversion) and bought an MG ZT 260 (and will be looking to get an Evo V/VI later in the year...) and got engaged last weekend as well. So been busy!!!
I'm now looking to build yet another hi-fi system for the main living room in our house (already got a Cyrus/B&W CM7 system in the dining room at the back of the house and a B&W XT surround sound/PV1 sub system in the upstairs living room). I now want a hi-fi just for me, downstairs, in MY living room/hiding hole!
I'm fixed on B&W 684 speakers along with a Rega Apollo CDP BUT I cannot make my mind up re amp. I've demo'd the Arcam FMJ A32, the Roksan Kandy LIII and the Cyrus 8v2 amp and I'm stumped!
I know they've all been recently upgraded but I want to make a saving where I can.
I predominantly listen to Hed Kandi, Massive Attack, Fischerspooner, Danny Tenaglia, Underworld etc... But I also listen to Jethro Tull, AC/DC/System of a Down, Iron Maiden, La Roux and so on... Basically a very eclectic taste!
Just wanted to see what your opinions would be and which way you'd go?
