That doesn't compute. We need to know all the actual dimensions width, length and height because this affects both the amp power and speaker/sub that's needed - especially important for your musical tastes.4.3m wide (probably double as long), 26m2
Just to confirm - the Budget is 10-13,000 DKK which is 1300- 1690 Euro or £1200-1560. This is a UK based forum so $ mean nothing to me !Yeah $1500 is probably what I would be expecting, but I would be willing to go upwards of $2050 10-13k danish, if we still assemble without sub
Alright I will do the measurements tomorrow. Yes I think thats what I'm willing to spend right now.I'm getting confused.

I probably won't be back on the forum for 24 hours.
Thanks a lot I appreciate the help man! Very nice of you!
Yes for audio output from PC. Streaming from phone would be nice but not a dealbreaker really if PC and TV is hooked up.
Yes, I took this amp out of my consideration because no digital, no sub. It seems very basic and very limited in what it will match to both when it comes to reuse and resell value. The Argon SA1 seems better for that price-range.In his 1000 euro system Darko suggests the NAD C316BEE at 399 euro plus the Allo Boss 2 at 205 euro total 604 euro.
Regarding PC its built-in soundcard hasI need more detail on this. Is this an analogue output ? Does it have digital outputs - either Coax or optical ? Can it stream wirelessly ? Might be easier just to tell me the PC make and model.
I have a newer iPhone XS, V-MODA DAC was the only dongle that could produce clear sound last time I looked.What phone do you use ? Also what streaming service - like Spotify Qubuz etc. Is it a paid for service ? Do you have any plans to use other services ?
Mostly I use my headphones Ultrasone Pro 900 and DAC Leckerton Audio UHA6S.MKII and 320 CBR or FLAC usually.What system are you currently using to listen ? This will give me some idea of the quality you're used to.
Therefore I have decided to pay for whatever incredible music I stumble upon via bandcamp and manage and host it all myself, but I do understand people that can live with it and listen to an album or two at a time. I almost always try to listen to new music myself and compose my favorites together in genres and style.

And there's always more to learn ! Information is Power !!I'll keep you updated when I have visited the store Thanks a lot for your help again everyone, I learned a ton!
Enjoy your trip to the storeI've now had time to think about your requirements - so the next thing to send you is my proposed solutions.
Rather than deluge you with more stuff, let me know when you're ready for me to send it.
I haven't listened to even 10 proper headphones so I wouldn't know for sure.The sound you're used to mainly a function of the headphones. I've read some reviews and got the impression that they are strongly "voiced" (meaning that they are not neutral) being particularly good for your style of music.
It would be helpful if you could tell me what you like about their sound, what you dislike and what sort of improvements in quality you are looking for, so I can make my recommendations more suitable for you.
I saw many people use a miniDSP when I looked for opportunities to EQ and learned it could also be used for room correction, which I need to read up on. In the end I think what I want in the future when I'm settled is a 3 knob like the Loki Mini Plus, I looked at Lokius too, but I think the best part is quickly being able to add lows, mids or high. Because my music is too vastly different in mastering and sometimes its vinyl rips or premixed as in tracks overlap and maybe have a tone by the DJ.The main systems, listed in order of increasing desireability - and generally increasing price, are
Audyssey (used by many),
ARC (Anthem Room Correction, exclusive),
RP (Room Perfect which is exclusive to Lyngdorf).
All use a microphone to measure the room and then apply correction.
Yes I think with how much lows fill my listening space its a must. But for now I need to get the speakers and get used to using them. Your sub recommendations seem reasonable, cheaper than buying a matching set, so if its available by the time I'm ready to invest I will definetily get that.Subwoofer
I think we have all agreed with you that you should have a subwoofer.
You can't add this to an amp unless it has a full tape loop system. I suppose you could put it between the pc and amp using the analogue outputs - but the you'd be using the DAC in the pc rather than using the optical out to the DAC in the amp. Also it's about 150 euro.In the end I think what I want in the future when I'm settled is a 3 knob like the Loki Mini Plus
I think you are the right track using software on the PC as tone controls on the songs before they they go to the amp. You could get some sort of audio file editor and correct the tracks permanently.
I think minidsp uses Dirac and the entry cost is about $449. It would have to be placed between your PC and the amp. So would only room correct sources from the PC.I saw many people use a miniDSP when I looked for opportunities to EQ and learned it could also be used for room correction, which I need to read up on.
There are tone controls and customisable preset setting on T758. The tone controls can be directly accessed from the remote and adjusted in real time. There are also further options in Dirac. Have a look at the manual in the link below.In the end I think what I want in the future when I'm settled is a 3 knob like the Loki Mini Plus,
Thanks a lot for your continued effort in bringing me all your thoughts! I appreciate it very much.I think you are the right track using software on the PC as tone controls on the songs before they they go to the amp. You could get some sort of audio file editor and correct the tracks permanently.
But these sort of DJ like facilities are way out of my comfort zone. I'll leave it you to find a solution - some sort of digital DJ mixer between the PC and amp ???
Store experienceDali Oberon 3 speakers 4398 DKK = 572 euro
I would rather keep that out of the conversation, but I understand where you're coming from and just trying to help me, so its all good The store was hifiklubben.dkThanks for the feedback write up - you've clearly had a very useful day
What dealer did you visit in which city ?
I'm not surprised - the Dali sub isn't very good which you can tell just by comparing the spec with the SVS SB1000 Pro - but that's not to suggest that specs always translate to sound quality. Having said that I do wonder whether the sub had been properly integrated with the speakers.Everytime we went back to the Dali Oberon 3 I was put off by the bass and the "shifted" mids/highs as best as I can describe it. It did not sound clear, it sounded more muffled.
We then hooked the Dali Sub E-9 F for the final comparison with a subwoofer attached.
