I am thinking of setting up a musical system of seperates to compliment my AV setup I have at the mo. But run seperately, so don't need to match. I would need to purchase an amplifier, Speakers (as av are sats), and a cd player (as only have an old Sony, or Toshiba 520e). As money is restricted. I was thinking of buying second hand. With upgrades in the future, to modernise, and improve the system. As such it is hard to demo second hand equipment all together. I am therefore looking at any advise anyone can give me. Budget of about £500, inc speakers, but would like to start at a lower price, if can. I have been looking at Arcam, but open to other suggestions. Have seen Arcam 7 cd player for £100, (with the possible upgrade, as discussed in another forum to get it to 82 spec at a later date). And seen a brand new Arcam 7R amplifier for only £150. Thankyou in advance. Ricky Just thought I would add that I mainly listen to rock music.
