:lease:can anyone recommend a good amp and cd player to go with my beloved focals??????
im currently using an alpha 8se and yamaha avr1065.
i listen to pink floyd and guitar bands.
the amp is driving me mad and im close to throwing it out the window.
I have been recommended the cyrus range, but also an arcam avr 350 as it sounds well in stereo as well as movies.
the focals are a little laid back to my ears so need a amp with a little more attack and a great front sound stage.
thanks...............

The local Focal distributor is also the Arcam distributor, and he thinks it's the best of all possible combinations.

Find a good dealer, book a demo, take along some of your own music, spend an hour or two listening to your music, then buy whatever amp provides the sound you require.

To eliminate your worries, try auditioning before spending, rather than spending before regretting.
