So here are the ideas I have, anyway. I'm looking at buying from Richer Sounds since they seem to offer good value for money.
All in ones:
Denon DM31 or Teac Legacy 600 - both at about £200.
Mordant Short Avant 902 @ £150. I'm told that for my needs (fidelity rather than volume) floor standing speakers are probably overkill - is this so?)
mid range speaker cable (combined) for biwiring.
Or I could go the separates route in which case I have a couple of options
1) get a Cambridge Audio Azur 640A (£250) to use with my existing Panasonic CD player (vintage circa 1992 - cost then £150 or so). This might be somewhat akin to sticking a mini engine inside a sports car - I don't know.
2) get the more modestly priced Azur 340A (£150) and an Azur 340C CD player (also £150)
This would also require an interconnect cable costing about 20 quid and would mean I don't get a radio, although I don't listen to the radio much anyway currently.
Any thoughts anyone. Recommendations for other kit in the same price bracket also very welcome.
