After the KEF Q900 + Q600c: What else should I get?


Novice Member
Hello everyone,

I'm going to build a Hi-Fi System that will be used for movies (70%) and audio (30%).
Regarding movies I'm going to buy in the near fututre a 3D TV so the system will have to be ready for that.
Regarding music, me and my wife mainly listen to classic music and instrumentals. We are not at all fans of hard rock and "heavy" music.

So I decided to buy the KEF Q900 and the Q600c for the center. Regarding the subwoofer and surround spearks I was thinking in maintaining the KEF brand and buy the Q400b and the K100's. Don't know if you want to change this recomendation...

By know this make a total of 3200€

But know I really need some help with the rest.
1- Is a good AV receiver such as the Onkyo TX-NR1009 or the Marantz SR 7005 enough for movie and audio? Do you recommend another one?
2 - What about a pre-amp? Will I get much out of it?
3 - Do I need an AV receiver as well as a Stereo amp? Or is that to much?
4 - And what should I use for the source? I have a lot of my music in my computer stored as FLAC files. Can I stream them? If so, will I loose quality? Or should I stick with CD's?

Thanks allot
