Get a grip guys!

Congratulations, whatever the gender, looks like the tactless  tasteless comments may have scared them off anyway.

My Boyfriend and I are very much "sit back and chill" people.  We like "Classical"  music if that makes a difference to recomendations I'm not sure.  We have a small room where our current sound system lives.it's roughly 12ft x 12ft and I would think this is any new system would go.

Susie, I would certainly recommend a pair of AVI speakers. They have their own built-in amps and are superb with Classical music. I was lucky enough to hear the new 'baby' speakers from AVI, the ADM5's (not sure if they've settled on that name yet). The sound from such a small speaker is huge and I listened to Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D Major, which sounded quite breathtaking. And this was without a subwoofer!

They're not quite released yet but, if I were in your position, I'd certainly short list them. The makers are in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire if you're ever in that neck of the woods and they're most hospitable. Failing that, I'm sure a set will make their way to their London dealers (not sure if I'm allowed to mention the shop name or not!) 

You'd just need an Airport Express (that was the setup I saw) to act as a DAC and then stream the music through your wireless broadband (I assume everyone has this nowadays, especially in London!)
