Here I am trying to cut in well below $2k for my first system, which in Australia does not get you a whole lot.
I have come up with these components for my hi fi system, but could you please tell me how well they fit together and maybe suggest something else?
Integrated Amplifier: Yamaha A-S500 $800
Turntable: Pro-Ject Essential $300
Speakers: Dali Concept 6 $700 (or maybe find something second hand?)
That brings me to $1800 (the cheaper it is, the faster I will save up for it), the turntable seems unproportionately cheap, but somehow I find that I am least willing to compromise on the amp. And the speakers - well that's what ties everything together, isn't it?
i thought quoting a Rega RP1($600), but that puts me over my budget, and I just cannot find another place to compromise in, in this particular system.
Please - shed light and knowledge on this uneducated man (me)
