Need advice on what to buy - £2000 budget
This is my first post so please be nice
I am totally new to buying hifi equipment, unless you count an all in 1 system. Anyway, I have been meaning to replace my speakers for some time as they crackled a lot, the other day the amp exploded and now I am sans music.
I have bought the latest What Hi-Fi mag, but even after reading the jargon section at the back I am still no closer to knowing what I want and need.
Basically I am after a speaker system, and I already have the following to go with it:
- Stanton STR8.150 turntable - has phono and digital out
- XBOX 360 - digital out
- Toshiba HDTV - I forget the model, not sure if I can even connect this to an amp as I can't get to the back of it to look
- Macbook Pro - Not sure how I would connect this up.
I am after some speakers, an amp and wire/cable.
Primarily will be used for music from the turntable and mp3s on my Mac. My tastes range from heavy metal/dnb/hip hop/jazz/indie... pretty much anything other than pop music, something bass heavy and driving would be needed, but at the same time would pick up on the intricacies of the music. I have a smallish room, so nothing too big. Would prefer an integrated amp if this means I only need the 1 box (as I said i'm pretty much clueless when it comes to this and I don't have a great deal of room).
I've set a budget at £2000. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
