Looking for advice on a new system with Yamaha amps
I'm new to the whole Hi-Fi separates deal, and finally considering a new system (up until now I've been using simple stereo systems).
As I'm on a pretty tight budget, I've been thinking of something along the line of these:
Amp: I love Yamaha amps, so I was thinking of the AS300 or the RS500 (their about the same price, and the RS500 could even be a bit cheaper). Could any of you recommend which is better?
Speakers: This is where I got completely confused. I originally thought of the Wharfedale Diamond 10.1, but the guy at the stereo shop couldn't recommend them (said that they didn't fit well with the amp). Other than the Wharfedales, I thought of Dali Zensor 1, Monitor Audio BX2 and Quad L-ite. I even thought of putting a little extra money for the B&W 685. What do you guys think? Could any of these fit well with the Yamaha amps? and if so, which is the best choice?
As for the other parts I'm pretty sure I'm fine, with Pro-Ject Essential turntable and the Yamaha CDS300 as the CD player.
Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!
