2 or 2.1 setup with amp that costs around 25-30k.
my room size is about 400 sq. ft., music i enjoy is mainly rock.
i've checked out the wharfdales and didnt quite like how they sound,
i preferred the kef iq 5 speakers but they're way too xp. prefer speakers with better mids.
where can i get sherwood+mission to audition. the combo price is pretty attractive.
Read in another post that most of your collection is mp3. How do you listen to music right now? For mp3s a CDP really does not give great output (music sounds very dead and flat) and even an amp will do very little to improve SQ especially if the bitrates are low.
mumbai .i will arrange this
Do you have a PC? If so upgrading the HDD, sound card and investing in a good pair of powered speakers like Audioengine A5 will do the trick and your entire mp3 collection too will not be a loss. This will prove a better route in the long run and work out cheaper than a CDP, amp, speakers, etc.
Finally it all comes down to enjoying music. You might not have a great setup but if you still enjoy mp3s then its great. You don't really need to upgrade everything and start collecting audio CDs since that's the "audiophile standard". Don't get into that cycle... it's a never ending journey.
I sincerely suggest you to purchase something you listen to and like. As much as you respect other's opinion, you should like it at the end of it all.
Visit Croma in Madhapur and take a look at the Yamaha 5.1 HT System on display there. It costs around 43K or so. Music/movies are good on it and that too played via a Philips DVDP and via RCA cables. I auditioned it for a friend. Only thing lacking is a DVDP as part of the deal but any budget DVDP with digital out will serve the purpose. Do take a look at it. SQ was pretty good on it.
BTW, I also wanted to add that this package comes with two FS in the 5.1 speaker package unlike the BS that come in all entry level HTIBs of Onkyo, Philips, etc.
