Hello and thanks in advance for any help here.
I will be listening to mostly records and maybe cds in the future. I listen to all types of music, but most of my vinyl is traditional jazz records from my Dad's collection that he gave me.
LIstening area in a nook and I live in a condo so I will not be blasting, however I do not plan on being here forever either.
I do have a relative that can get me Marantz, Polk, JBL and Martin Logan at dealer cost. I have only been able to listen to Martin Logan Electromotion ESLs and Marantz from this list. Thinking the discount should be about 35% of retail.
Yesterday I was able to listen the Revel F12s as well as Klipsch speakers. I liked the F12s better.
I listened to Rotel seperates, the RC1550 preamp and RB1562 power amp. The dealer quoted me $900 for the pair of Revels and $1250 for the Rotel amp and preamp.
I am looking at the Project 3 turntable or Project 1Expression 3 turntables.
I am leaning towards the Rotel/Revel package so far. I wish I had more options to listen to, but there is only one hi fi store here and Best Buy is only other option. From what I have read, Rotel and Revel F12s get good reviews.
Any pros or cons here? Opinions?
I am sure you guys get tons of newbie questions and I really appreciate your knowledge knowing of course we all have different taste and preferences.
