Hi, i'm new to this forum and was hoping to get some help/advice. I currently have worthless audio equipment and want to buy from scratch. I have a budget of about 3500 euro and for this money i want an amplifier (integrated), a cd-player, bookshelf speakers and if necessary a subwoofer. Later on i want to buy a DVD-player and a plasma/lcd television. For now, no *.1 setup is necessary. Ratio of music/movies is about 70/30. I have searched the internet and listened to some equipment and speakers and this is the best combination i heard yet (only listened to a few setups): -Arcam Solo -B&W 705 - Rel Strata 5 Subwoofer Now i have a few questions: - Is the Arcam solo powerful enough to drive the B&W 705 speakers? - What other integrated amplifiers and CD-players should i consider in this budget? - I Like the B&W sound, are there any speakers comparable in sound to the 705's that look better? (i don't like the shape of the 705's, i like the 805's but i think the Arcam Solo won't do these justice) - Is the Rel Strata a good choice as i will mostly use it for audio? Any suggestions are very welcome.
