I recently bought a pair of dynaudio focus 380 speakers, and i am currently powering them with my own home built amp (small 150W x 2). I am looking to buy at system of either an integrated amp or pre-amp and power-amp (monobloks or stereo-amp). I also need a CD-player/transport and dac. I would like some feedback on what would be a good pairing with the speakers. Budget is 4-5000€.
The OPPO BDP-105 is the best CD/SACD player in the world at the moment for under E5000, from all reports and IMO. It sells for around $1200 in the US; highly recommended. It also has a very good integral DAC.
For an integrated amplifier, i suggest that you consider the ARCAM A38, which is very good and sells for $2400 US.
The Musical Fidelity M6i is another excellent one that sells for $3000 here.
Since your speakers are rated at 88 db/W sensitivity, any amplifier with 60 watts or more will have plenty of power to drive tham.
Thanks, i am new to hifi so i need all the help i can get :) i will look into the above mentioned gear.
I just listed my Musical Fidelity M3i on the Classified listing at AVS Forum.
I am asking $950, and it is like new.
It would be worth considering, but shipping costs might be a problem, depending on your location.
i looked in to shipping and export tax stuff and the end price i close to retail price.
