I am a newbie and always wanted to good sound system. I ventured into a B&W dealer recently and was recommended a pair of
a) BMW 700 series bookshelf speaker and pair it with
b) Rotel 1052
c) Escient mx-111
however after going back to check the speakers, I found that I like the
a) BMW 803s or the 804-s (debating over the richer bass of 803 and of course the price differences of $1.5K)
b) should I get the Rotel 1057 instead
c) Since I hace a LCD in my other sitting room, should I get the Escient MX-111 to have a better equip entertaiment system? Can I do with out the escient since I am debating over the $1999 retail price tag and it's not blu ray and on top of it I will need a sony changer for another $700.
So in terms of configuration my first system, can I get away with
1) the B&W speaker (800 series)
with 2) Rotel amps 1057 or 1052
3) Playstation PS3 or a bluray player
In terms of budget, I am fine but doesn't want to "oversplurge"hmmmm.... sounds like oxymoron here!
