Thanks to my Dali Ikon 6 5.1 speaker upgrade, arriving this weekend, I have a set of Kef 2005.1 eggs and sub to re-home. I'm thinking about putting them in the bedroom and mounting them just below ceiling level, pointing down in a 5.1 channel set up for use in primarily a matrix 5 channel stereo mode.
My old Pioneer DV565D will feed into a receiver and I don't really want to spend too much money. For £180 I can buy a Denon AVR-1507. Is this the best value for a multichannel amp to power these speakers. It'll be mostly playing my iPod, connected in a rather basic fashion and occasionally a DVD or CD and perhaps a bit of good old fashjoned radio in the morning.
My QED Silver Anniversary cable is going to be feeding the new Dali's so what should I buy for the KEFs at minimum expense in keeping with the whole budget nature of the kit. Looking at about a 30m total length of cable. Room is only 7x13ft.
