Hey all, It's an exciting time for me. I am moving house and my other half promised that when we moved I could finally purchase a hi-fi seperates system. Oh joy! However, due to moving costs... (do you know how much conveyancing costs!!??) I only have a budget of between £400-500. I have been doing some avid reading on these forums and firstly would like to know what the difference between a CDP and a transport is? At the moment I have an all-in-one system which I use for dvds and cds and dab listening. I am going to keep the all-in-one for dvds so I can enjoy 5.1 sound from that. With a budget of £500 would it be worth getting a cd player, stereo amp and speakers and then maybe adding a DAC into the system at a later date? I have read that a sub is a good addition to a music setup, but surely a good set of floor standers would provide enough bass? I do like the look of floor standing speakers but if bookshelf or speakers on stands would be better than I would be willing to go down that route. I was thinking of Cambridge CDP and amp but on the speaker front I have no idea! Any suggestions on a decent setup would be appreciated.
