im planning to build a second system which would be easier for my wife to use and would be my second system for no frill use (in my current cadence setup, i start by removing covers of electrostats, power on amp for 10 mins, then listen!, my wife feels i act like im entering a temple :) ) - Jai's thread in similar lines was an eye opener in this regard.

im looking at an amp in the range of 30k, should i go for Norge or Pulz, any opinion on which one is better built?

anything else worthwhile in that range...?

i have not decided on speakers yet, but it would be a book shelf. im tempted to try out r400 by pulz an their matching speakers ...total would come around 54k. im not familiar with Norge though

I once had a chance to hear DNM A-777 amp some time back. The sound was pretty good. I have no knowledge of reputation or reliability of this company.

There are threads in here regarding Norge. A quick search and read would benefit you I guess.

I would suggest going for an all in one like Marantz M-CR603 with a pair of bookshelves.
I use the M-CR503 with a Dali Zensor 1 pair in the bedroom.

Hi Jenson

If your wife is not too fussy about the sound and she listens to downloads and streamed music, then a Bose Soundlink is super convenient. That's what I use at my home. You can even carry it with you in your car. I feel a second system should be portable. You should be able to carry it with you to the kitchen, bedroom or wherever

A pair of active speakers would be a good starting point.

Personally I can recommend these: PreSonus Eris E4.5 Monitors | Sweetwater.com

Available for around 17k in India. Very non fussy speakers. Can be placed on a shelf instead of dedicated stands. Don't need a preamp (front volume control). Sound ridiculously good for the money. I use them as desktop and casual listening speakers for a small room (~200sft). I had AudioEngine A5s in the past and these are in a different league.

Other option is an all-in-one + bookshelves like Naturelover recommended.
