New system advice sought using Sonus Faber Concertinp's as base

I loved the sound of the Sonus Faber Concertino's Domus and am looking to build a system around them (I have no components right now).

I'm not sure about the number of channels I want and am having a bit of a dilemma deciding between two concertino domus's and either two concerto home or two wall domus (saw both of these on auction) to go with the concertino's. Though, if I loose the bids I don't think I'll buy more than two speakers.

Also, I wonder how the sound will be affected if I get 4 channel sources but only have two speakers (leaving room for later expansion), or is that a stupid idea? Asking mainly because my local AV store is closing before the auctions are and has a few nice primare sources for great prices. Darn the luck, looks like I'll have to pick two or four channel before the speaker auctions close.

Yes, I know I'm trying to be cheap on this high end high fi...just looking to get the best sound I can for the lowest price.

Has anyone had any experience putting a system close to this together?

I'd recommend you get the best buy for your buck "Stereo Only" system why you have such good prices. With limited funds, but with some serious discounting on a closing down sale, you can put together a seriously good stereo system. If you want to go multi channel, you can always buy second hand later and but as funds allow.

But if it was me,I'd go for the very best stereo system my funds would allow given the sale/auction and bargins at the time.

BTW I have listened to the SF Domus and found the highs and bass to be great, but found the midrange a little too sweet for my tastes.

Thanks for the reply Colin.

So, to make sure I understand correctly, are you saying it's a bad idea to hook up two speakers into a multichannel source? Or is this even possible?

I recommend you go for a 2 channel only system at the moment. Unless you have some compelling reason for buying a multichannel system at the moment.

You stated in your origional post, you had No sources as of yet, or speakers?
