Hello! I am building up a entry starter hifi system for me. Very small room.
I have Dali Zensor 1 speaker waiting to connect something better then my actual AV receiver Denon 1802..
I have found a few models but I need an advice what would be the best match for my speakers. Option I found in shops here:
- Pioneer A-30 - my no1 at this moment. I like the look and the price is pretty nice (260€). And Pioneer offer a nice network player N-30 and CD/SACD player.
- entry level NADs - C216BEE (320€), C226BEE (440€), I really don't like how they looks but I am not buying amp to look at it :P Many people says NAD are best but it's entry level so maybe not the best option
- Yamaha A-S500 - 350€, I heard Yamaha is not best match for Dali, didn't heard though
- Harman Kardon HK980 (360-400€), Marantz PM6004 (450€), Denon PMA720AE (370€), entry Cambridge Audio Azur amp?
I can audition only a few of them (Harman, maybe Pioneer or NAD) but in different studios which for my nontrained ears won't help I think.. I would need all of them home and a free weekend :D
Sources will be PC with Envy24 soundcard (Terratec Aureon Space 7.1), Blueray player Panasonic DMT-BDP310. Later I will add headphones amp with DAC (Beresford or Camrbidge Audio maybe), CD player and Network player.
What would you suggest from the listed ones? Thanks for any advice! :)
