Hi all. I'm a new member here but hope to hang around a while. I haven't really had time to search the forums so if I'm repeating another thread, please don't hesitate in pointing me in the right direction. i'm about to splurge a modest amount on a new system: integrated amp, cd player and new speakers, standmounts in particular. I listened to both the new MF X Ray v8 and the Primare starter range the L21 & CD21 teamed with Epos M12.2 on the same day and was great impressed with both although the MF set up seemed to extend the sound considerably. During that day i also had a session with some Arcam Diva and Rotel Ra06 equipment aswell as the Roksan Kandy MkIII offerings. Of this selection the former two brands sounded stuffy whereas the Roksan was pleasing but nowhere near the level of enjoyment of the Primare and MF. So, given my preferences which do you think I should go for. In terms of longevity I have no idea which system will come out on top. From an aesthetic point of view, the Primare is gorgeous looking stuff in my opinion but the MF ain't far behind. I'll also bargain for i/c and speaker cables accordingly and I'm quite taken with the Epos speakers so help me out with the above. Cheers.
