My first post on here so please be gentle...
I have been very luck enough to win an Arcam Alpha Integrated 9 amp and B&W 602 S3 speakers on Ebay, the amp was won at £142 and the speakers at £107. Both items are in pristine condition, much a credit to the sellers so no complaints from me. I was also luck enough to win 6m of QED Silver Anniversery bi-wire (brand new) for £60!
Amazing prices i know, this is for my second system in the bedroom.
I am after a decent CD player to go with them and have been looking at the Arcam 7 SE that i have seen a few times on Ebay now (quite a few have been listed recently, soom in fantastic condition, some not).
I am prepared to speand upto £300 on a CD player, either off Ebay or a new one from a shop. I'd like some suggestions if possible? In regards to a CD player and maybe improving the connctions (interconnects mainly) I have been out of the hi-fi market for a number of years now so have lost touch with most things. I have to admit im a Bose Lifestyle 48 owner (it does everying i need really).
Im still young at 28 and thoroughly enjoy listening to music from Bonzo Dog / Jethro Tull / Pink Floyd (i blame my father and older brother) to Amy Winehouse, 'Back to Mine' collection (usually funky, soulful chill out music - well worth looking into if you havent already done so) to Hed Kandi to Iron Maiden & System of a Down (very weird/eclectic taste i know, apologies).
Anyways, the amp and speakers are well suited to me, powerful yet crips and clear (i have been an Arcam & B&W fan for years now).
All suggestions are greatly welcomed. Sorry to have waffled on
