i dont have a stereo as such - my computer is my stereo. i dont really have the money or the space to get a stereo system, but have been advised that i could have something much better than my logitech z2300 speakers, and people seem to be reccommending a good pair of speakers which can handle the base for me, and an amp, instead of getting a separate sub.
because of the layout of my room, i favour floor standers as opposed to shelf units. the room i will be listening in is approx 12 foot square, but i will probably be a couple feet nearer to the speakers than that. im no base-head, although i appreciate some is important, and ive no need to wake the neighbours, clarity is what im after - although im not very good at saying what i want in the terminology you probably use. id like to get everything i need for no more than £500 GBP.
