Well, packed up all the AV gear, sold various bits and have invested in a temporary Teac 300 amp/cd/tape/tuner system, ex-display from Comet. It's actually very good. Now it's got burned in a bit, it's sounding better and better. I ditched the Teac speakers and replaced with some Ruarks and it's coming alive now. Still sounds a little bit boxy but that may go after another 20 hours or so. I'm very pleased with it and would recommend a demo to anyone looking for a (very) attractive mini system for the office or bedroom. The Teac speakers are OK but a good set will transform it.
