Question for Matthewpiano (and others)
My search for the perfect system has made me realise that I can not afford what I want right now. And while I am happy to wait for 2 or 3 years to be able to buy a system that I will live with for many years, my current little Denon m37 has died. So I am going to go out one last time to audition and listen to the following
1) pioneer a30 + pd30
2) marantz cr610
now I know Matthew has experience with both these and would love to know what you think. I know both offer different functions, but down to sound quality alone how do the 2 set ups differ? I would love the Zensor 3's to go with either set up but they will be very close to rear wall, so was thinking Wharfedale 121. How do both these speaker perform?
I dont want want massive volume when playing, at times it may be pushed hard but mainly volumes that allow for conversations to take place also. The room is approx 12ft square and we listen to all genre of music from dance to orchestra.
