You are given the task of putting together a speaker/amp/ integrated/receiver? system with a budget of $1200.00 for a newbee. They have an older CD player and turntable he/she will replace next year. They have earmarked $1,000 each for the next two years for new source equipment, but, that is the next two years.
You are only asked to recommend a pair of speakers and some kind of amp to get them started on the road to audiophilia. What do you suggest?
