New Year, New System on £4-5k Budget
Dear all, I'm looking at putting together a new system for approx £4,000 - £5,000.
My music choice is mostly modern classical such as Ludovico Einaudi, movie soundtracks, blues such as Chris Botti on trumpet, or Michael Buble on vocals. I tend to listen to music as background when I read but may occasionally pump it up a bit to fully experience the depth of the music.
My music is mostly on my iPhone and iPad but the entire selection is on an external drive connected to my MacBook air upstairs. Occasionally I listen to a CD, particularly if its not on my iPad.
I would like to have access to my entire selection downstairs in my living room. I don't mind duplicating my music rather than filling my house with wifi. I'm kind of concerned about all the radio waves on my young family. I do like to listen to Internet radio and podcasts that I've downloaded to my iPad.
I was thinking of the following setup, but wasn't sure how to listen to my music and podcasts on my iDevices:
Speakers: KEF LS50
CD player: Marantz CD6004
Amplifier: Marantz PM6004
Was thinking of a Pioneer N50 but that's where I started getting overwhelmed by the whole configuration of my system. I would appreciate some clarity and guidance in the selection of components to best suit my budget and needs. I could be willing to extend my budget up to £6,000 if required to make the best setup. Thanks so much.
