My first hifi setup, some basic questions as i don´t have many clues :)
I am looking to buy a system for 700-1800£
1. How much should i spend on amp? speaker? Also, I will play from a notebook only so i guess a DAC is a good idea? For me as a beginner the amp seems like a low priority, an amp is an amp right?
2. I listen to alot of electronic music (+rock, piano, Jazz. not so much vocals) on low-ish volume. I prefer smaller speakers with a subwoofer = lots of detail + warm bass...I want as much detailed tweeter as possible (to enjoy all those nice crackling sounds Or is it important with a "full ranged" floor standing speaker?
3.So far I really like the Dali Ikon 1 speaker, B&W sounded to warm and "dull" for my taste ( listened to CM1 and DM686). Any other speakers I should think of? Elac? Canton? (both are frequently being sold second hand here in Sweden)
Very Grateful for any help!
