OK - I know they aren't for the purist - and I have a lovely Technics separates system that I adore, but I need to buy a smaller system for a different place, for various reasons, anyway - exploring the mini-market... I'm stunned to see how the market has changed since I last brought hi-fi equipment! Midi seems to have died, separates alive and well but just these mini thingies left for smaller rooms, most look nasty and no doubt sound nasty and what's with the swages of plastic and bright fluro lights?! Anyway, although haven't tried them all, I have narrowed it down to 3 hopefully non-nasty ones... £600 or less ideally... 1 - Denon 201SA with PMA-201SA Amp, TU-201SA Tuner and DCD-201SA CD player + SCM201 speakers to match (approx £600 online best price) OR 2 - Denon D-F101 with it's matching components, would probably add a cassette deck to that as it'll be a little cheaper (approx £400 ex cassette) (both 1 and 2 have good Hi-Fi choice reviews) OR finally (because I have a nice Techincs already, but maybe not as good as above, it being much cheaper...) 3 - Technics SCHD560E - this probably is in a different league to the above and can be had for £300 from on-line shops too. Can't find any detailed spec expect a small set on the panasonic website, they apparantely don't have brochures either... Any thoughts guys and gals?
