Hi All, For the last 4 or 5 years I've been using a Panasonic SA-AK28 midi system and now I'm aiming to move up in the world of hifi in both looks and sound. I've been looking round on the net at various sites (including the OcUK forums) and it appears that for a moderate budget it would be possible for me to get a really decent system, at least compared to what I use currently. My main requirements of the system are as follows: Standmount/Bookshelf speakers - I don't really think I've got the space in my room for floorstanders. Amplifier should have integrated phono inputs or the final price should include a phono pre-amp. An FM tuner is pretty much a MUST here. I listen to the radio a lot (probably more than CDs). DAB would be an advantage but isn't required. Ideally, all of the kit (the separates at least) should complement each other well in looks, so all the kit from one manufacturer would be ideal. When I've been looking arround on the net the Cambride Audio Azur range has caught my eye. The kit looks stunning and from reviews it sounds like its decent for the price range. If I was buying from the Azur range I'd probably be looking at the 540A or 640A amplifier, 540C or 640C cd player and the 640T FM/DAB tuner. One thought, however, was that the 540R AV Receiver sports an FM tuner which removes the need to fork out another £200 for a tuner. From a few magazine reviews, I hear it's also pretty decent for music so that would be a consideration. Even if its not the best quality possible, remember I'm moving up from a relatively cheap midi system which has served me well up until this point so I'm not in any need for spectacular quality at this time. Another factor is the cost of cabiling. So far I've not been able to establish how much it would cost for decent (not top quality, but ones which will do the system justice) interconnects and speaker cable. From price lists it seems that somewhere in the region of £50-70 on cabling would probably suffice. Speaker-wise it seems I should be looking at a set of B&W DM600 S3s (£199.95) or Mordaunt Short 902 AVANTs (£119.95) in my price range. Both seem to get good reviews and suit my needs pretty well. I'm not totally sure of my budget at the moment but around £600 would be a pretty good guess. I'm open to gradually buying the kit i.e. amp, speakers and tuner (if not integrated) to begin with, then the CD player later on. I'm open to any suggestions at this point. To give some sort of idea as to timescale I should be looking at starting getting the system at some point in January or February. Thanks for any help, Matt P.S. Merry christmas all!
