    Hi all.

    Me again.

    I am still/now debating whether to buy a new cinema/hifi set up or just get a new dedicated hifi system. (Currently have a 10yr old separates hifi and an all in 1 cinema system)

    Based on this dilemma, please note the following:

    For CD listening, which is the best? The CD192 or FMJ CD33 cd players or the FMJ DV27A dvd player?

    If I decide to go down the Hifi path, which is the best Arcam integrated amp for one of the above players? (Budget up to £1300) The FMJ A32 or the A90? Or even something else?

    If I decide on cinema set up, then which is better...the FMJ A32 amp fitted with a 7.1 multichannel board (I assume the 7.1 multichannel board makes it compatible for video or I am mistaken???) or the AVR300 amp?

    Please help!!

    Ta.

    CD33 is comfortably better than the DV27A for CDs. Don't know about the CD192.

    Having said that, depending on what you've got at the moment, you might be better off buying a stand-alone DAC such as the Benchmark DAC1.

    Hello.

    How long have you had it for?

    What colour is it?

    Are there any faults? Visible scratches/marks?

    Why are you selling it?

    Which integrated amp would you recommend to go with it? The FMJ A32 perhaps?

    Ta.

    1: I've had it for just over a year

    2: It is in black

    3: It is in mint condition with all original packaging and accessories and the 5 year warranty certificate.

    4: I feel like change, am looking for something a little better, probably about the £4000 mark.

    5: The A32 would be a good match for this player. We have an Ex Demo C30 going in the shop for £650 at the moment you might be interested in too.

    Give me a call at the shop (0131 2297267) and I can discuss any other queries you might have.

    Chris.

    Nice deal my fellow dutchman.

    In response to the TS, the cd33 in combination with the a32 is an amazing combination. I can really really recommend it.

    I was only replying to comments made by other members. Why do people have to be so picky on here?

    Hi, the C30 does not include the 7.1 channel board. This would cost an extra £350 if required. This is an absolute steal at this price, almost half retail with full 5 year FMJ warranty.
