SB 3 Touch + Everything Else. Budget : $1,000 - $2,00


Novice Member
Hi Folks:

I've spent the past week reading and doing a little listening. Suffice to say I'm a little overwhelmed with the amount of information available.

I would like some advice on a basic setup.


- Small apartment.
- The music area is one side of the living room measuring about 14' x 12'


- Only for listening to music. I don't have TV, theater, etc.
- Need to be able to listen to:
- Digital Music (from a NAS - already have Synology NAS)
- CD Player (A requirement from my SO. Need a CD player.)
- Radio (Need a tuner)
- Stereo setup is fine (don't need surround sounds)
- Don't have a lot of space and SO is very picky about appearance, so speakers, amp, etc. should be minimalistic looking. Ex: Nait 5i

I can purchase a DAC separately at a future date.

What are your recommendations for the remaining components? Speakers, Amps?

Thank you very much.

That's a bit above the price I was looking at.

How about the following?

Marantz PM6004
Paradigm Atom or Mini Monitor or Morduant Short Aviano 1

There's also a deal on at a local shop that pairs:

Marantz PM5004 with CD5004 and the Morduant Aviano 1 for 1049 + Tax.
