Fellow music lovers, Once upon fell into the trap of ditching my seperates for an all-in-one Linn box as I wanted to experiment in 5.1 AV but had very little cash. Three years and a million movies later, I now find myself moving back to music, spending less time watching DVDs and more time surfing iTunes for bands I've never heard of. So despite wanting to move house AND get married next year I'm going to expand my CD collection and treat myself to a new system geared towards 2 channel quality again. I'm now on a mission and need your advice. I've given this lots of thought, and realistically my priorities are: 1. Something I'll love listening to all my music on. 2. A solution that's enjoyable to use so ideally from a single manufacturer. 3. Good at doing the movie stuff too. Mind my current listeneing room is 15ft square. I listen to anything from Classical, through accoustic folk to dance and rap, so it's got to be good at the lot. I've set myself a budget of no more than £15k for the whole system. Here's what I've tried so far: * Cyrus 8vs and CD8 plus PSX-R with Dynaudio, Linn Ninka and Spendor s5e floorstanders. The Dynaudio I found precise but a bit uninvolving compared to the Ninkas. I also found the spendors a bit unentertaining. * Meridian G91 and DSP speakers. Very fine. Lots of smooth power there but lacking sparkle. * Arcam Diva and FMJ range with Spendor s5e. Also lacking something compaired to the Cyrus and Ninka setup. * Linn Unidisk SC and a Chakra 2100 with Ninka non-aktiv. Still not sure. I seem to be swaying towards the multi-box aproach of Cyrus 8. This is the only system that has really got my feet tapping and apparently using CD8 with DAX-XP, DVD8 with AV8, linking the two pre's via line level aux and adding a combination of monobloc and xpower power amps and multiple PSX-R boxes would give me everthing I'm after. I'm getting a demo of this next week along with the Spendor s8e, which based on my experiments to date I'm told I will probably like. I'm a bit worried by the number of boxes here, but for now I'm going to go with it. So any suggestions? What else should I try and listen to and why?
