Any thoughts? I don't even know what brands to looks for, and almost everything I've seen so far in stores is either Sony or some other large consumer brand. All I know is I don't really need 5.1 support except if it's cheaper than a stereo system. And what's the difference between an amplifier and a receiver?I'm thinking of building my first audio system, on a not-very-expensive budget. I'm thinking of a stereo amplifier with FM radio, a pair of speakers, a CD-player and maybe a turntable. I'll be checking what I can find locally, second-hand included, but you guys know what I should look for.
What about a Marantz CD-5001 (Assuming I can find one).I've used NAD equipment in theater setups, but I don't know that I've ever used that particular model, and I've certainly never done a real listening test, but their stuff has struck me as solid on the whole.
From that stuff, I'd pair the JBLs and the Onkyo.OK, with my limited to no knowledge in audio I've selected these
And I have no idea for a CD player to fit the budget. Also, screw local electronics/hi-fi stores. Everything is double the price on Amazon/BH
What music do you listen to?I'm looking for a little headphone buying advice. I've got a Cowon J3 with Sennheiser px-100's, but the headphones are a few years old and getting a bit beatup. I'm looking for circumaurals to use at work, is it worth spending $150-200 on a pair (and if so what should I get) or should I stick with new px-100's?
