I am trying to decide between the two stereo amps and the two floor standing speakers.Would appreciate more information/opinions.
If the MA RS 6 at the discounted price are all gone then so be it. No regrets.I prefer to take my time and audition Quad and Dynaudio and various Amp's before I take the plunge.I have decided to dispose off my entire older set up and slowly build a new one.
I dont think Audio People will sell their product in a huge discount. may be you will be getting 20% off from their fixed price ( if they have any fixed price ) , i was quoted various prices when i went to audition the RS 6 in their showroom. Their Monitor Gold was much better then the Silver series, Talk with Jalal or Shahul and see if you can get a discount in the Gold series. those speakers are worth. Also dont miss the Quads and Proac.
I will be auditioning the Quad 22l2 before deciding on any other speaker.After extensive research on audio forums from India,U.K.,U,S,A,New Zealand,Canada etc. the Quad is one of the few sub 1 lakh speakers for which EVERYONE has a good word.Every other speaker has been trashed by somebody or the other.
Audtion on Quad 99/909 combo Amps and Marantz PM 8003
