CD player CA 340 C - approx 17000
Sprk Mezzo 6 - approx 75000 for a pair of tower speaker

Costs approx 1.42 Lakhs and delare says another 7-8% dicsount possible

Is this a good buy or can i get a better option in terms of music

I am basically looking for a music system. I enjoy listening to Ghazals and oldies and sometimes POP & Rock

My hall size is approx 330 sft and its a "L" shaped hall.

Pls advice if any other better options so that I can have a look.

Hi Kumar:

This is what I have in my living room which is about the same size you mentioned above:

1. CA 640A V2
2. CA 640C V2
3. Monitor Audio RS6

I've had these for nearly 8-9 months now, stunning for music, and i love them.

My suggestion to you would be the following:

1. CA 740A V2
2. CA 640C V2
3. MS Mezzo 6

or

1. Marantz PM7003
2. Marantz CD6002
3. Monitor Audio RS6

What are your listening preferences?

740a is not a big step up from 640a. So i suggest you get that. Also it is much cheaper than the quoted price. The CD player should match fine and for speakers you have tons of options at that and lower price range depending on what you listen to.

hey, it's best to spend more on the CD player than on the emplification. Therefore, i think the best compromise for you would probably be te 640C CD player and the 640A amp, i am fairly sure it'll sound better than the 340C-740A combo.

Actually the price of 50K for a 740A seems too much. Somebody told me that the 840A mk 2 is available for 58,000. If so that would be a huge improvement in amplification and DAC. It is the reference standard of CA.

I had checked up with audio people before I picked up my Evos a couple of weeks ago, was given a quote of 65k plus courier charges.

Hope this helps.

cheers
