Hello Mayan,

Welcome to the forum, Zero Knowledge is also best, just we would start reading things keenly to know. Coming back to your query. Could you list down the Genre of Music you listen to? Like Classic,Western,Hindustani, or all type of music etc? Also what is your room size and what are the other components you have other than TV? Do you have DVD Player?
What is the source of your Music? CD's ? or MP3 stored in Computer?.What is the budget you have for muisc system? What is the size of the room?
You listen to music in normal volume or Bang Bang type

Sorry for many questions, but it gives some idea for the FM's to suggest as per your preference.

if your preference is listening music,it is better to go for separates(amp, cd player,speakers).you can try the used markets like hifi ads,olx etc.

Mayan, If you have CD collection Better to go with CD Player+AMP and Speaker.

Since you Prefer Classical and western, Better to go with a Neutral Set-up.

With Your Budget, You could try Marantz,Nad,Cambridge Audio,Nordge Amps and Polk, Whraf's ,usher,Sonodyne,Boston etc.
Marantz + Boston , Nordge+Sonodyne, Cambridge audio+Whrafs are the combination which you could try audition.

I am not sure about the Audio showrooms available in the Vadodara,But you could check online or some forum members might suggest the available location for audition.

40K is a good budget, but tell us if you have CD's (or) MP3 collection... Do you have DVD player?

I am curious to know what is a Neutral setup.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Even I am curious to know about 'neutral setup' ?
Is it something between 'warm sounding' and 'bright sounding' set up?

Someone please, enlighten me

Ok lets not start a discussion. Let me list the Amp which sounded Bright Warm and Neutral.

Yamaha and Onkyo were Bright for my ears and Onkoyo was on top.
Nad was warm, the Midrange was soothing and forward sounded was muted to an extent.
Finally settled with Sansui, which is Neutral and have tried Matantz too which was of same feel.
All the above were paired with JBL's
