Yes I agree but the A10 or Dali speakers used are still prob stretching my budget."Again, I’d really recommend you looking at used for speakers. It might help you jump up a range of two within a particular brand for the same money."
Not just range or two but possible flagship, celestikn A2, A3, a4c, a5r went for £1000
That's about £6500 worth of speakers. Even if they are cosmetically signed up but structurally and mechanically good...
The A1 will outclass those bookshelf speakers
I am looking at spending around £500 - £700 for front and centre speakers
