I am a very much a Newbie and this is my first post, so please be gentle. Current equipment - 28inch 4:3 Panasonic TV, Sky box (to be replaced by Sky+), Humax digital sat, VHS video. Also, but not linked, Cyrus amp, Cyrus tuner, Marantz CD player, Rogers LS7 speakers. I am NOT a film buff (no DVD). My primary reason for looking to dip my toe into the AV world is that I frequently have difficulty in "discriminating" dialogue from background effects when watching drama etc. I frequently resort to teletext subtitles when watching drama to ensure I can follow the plot. American sourced material seems particularly bad. Could you please advise on a suitable amp and speaker selection for ultra clear dialogue on a £600 budget. I do not require a tuner or gadgets like DSP. I have no objection in principle to buying second hand, but doubt that I have the experience to make appropriate selections. Thanks for any assistance.
