    hi there,

    i have been looking at a denon 201 with speakers, but have read for the money i can get a better sound with seperates.
    given a budget of 600-700 uk pounds (including speakers) what would people recommend?
    although looks are important my main objective is to get the best sounding equipment for my budget.

    many thanks

    You will do much better with seperates. Buy a copy of What Hi Fi or something like that and it will give you a suggested budget system. I think the current top budget is the Cambridge Azur 540 and 640 Amp and Cd player with speakers... hang on.. I will just check if I can - look at this link http://www.richersounds.co.uk/index.php?f=hifisystem.htm and that is a good starting point. I know the Azur is currently What Hi Fi's choice at this end but not sure which speakers they recommend. The most important thing for you to do is to take YOUR Cd's to the shop and listen to them on various things.... Decide what you think sounds good... everyones taste is different... let us know what you go for

    Is that a rhetorical question?

    I'd also consider NAD kit - the C521BEE CD player and C320BEE amp are an excellent pair of components.
