After a year of listening to headphones im currently looking to buy some speakers and an amp with a budget of around £500.(may be able to push it) My music tastes are varied but i spend alot of time listening to the following: Apocalyptica,Metallica (Pre-Black album), Megadeth (Pre Youthanasia), Rage against the machine, Red hot chilli peppers , Pantera, System of a down, N.W.A, Ice cube, and lots of other rap. my current idea's on speakers are: Superfi - WHARFEDALE DIAMOND 9.1 SPEAKERS & SW150 SUBWOOFER 2.1 SPEAKER PACKAGE Mission MX1 Black | Speakers Per Pair | Richer Sounds MISSION 79 Series 790 Speakers - Black at cheap prices | PC World Superfi - KEF Q300 SPEAKERS (PAIR) Not to sure about amps at the moment maybe a Marantz or Nad? I know that the Kef's are alot more expensive however due to some of my music not being well recorded i am concerned they may be too unforgiving, i do however still want detailed and reasonably revealing speakers. (Am i asking too much?) they do also push my budget however if its worth it im willing too. Any advice on what to go for? Im currently leaning towards the kef's at the moment and would probably buy a sub in the future for the occasional film. any other suggestions are welcome!
