Hi, I'm after a hi-fi setup in the summer (planning ahead ) I listen to a lot of music and love it however I am not an audiophile by any means. I have many things that I want to try and demo but haven't had the chance yet. Anyway what I'm asking is would a budget system sound pretty much the same over a more expensive one to the untrained ear? I'm happy to drop a couple of Ks on a system (which may be a budget system to some of you but when I say budget I mean a few hundred ) however I wonder if I'll be able to tell the difference over a cheaper setup - as I say I've yet to start demoing equipment. Also would people recommend trying to buy everything second hand to make my cash go further or are there some components to avoid buying secondhand? Thanks.
