RE: Need advice buying a sound system on a budget

heeeey,

 

I've been doing some research into buying a new sound system for my living room but my mind is being boggled by all the options!

basically iv already decided im buyin a pair of passive alesis  mk2's for speakers(as i will need them in future for going some mixing) but i need a stereo amp and want one that can wirelessly stream music from a laptop, tablet and phone but also be connected to my tv for movies n stuff and a blue ray player.

 

I was looking into getting an AV receiver but as i want it primarily for music i thought this option would be better.

 

I don't wana go over £200 if possible but the cheaper the better as long as it sounds good.

 

Any ideas?

Yeah, the Av receiver option would work but probably won't sound as good as a stereo amp for music. If your going down the monitor route why not get some active monitors instead and do without the av amp for now. 

 

If you want a decent stereo amp look at Denon PMA720AE, Pioneer A30, Yamaha As-500, Nad C326BEE, Marantz PM6004, Rotel RA-10.

No idea about AV amps - I would go for Yamaha or Onkyo probably.
