Well, it's time for me to put together a decent hi-fi system. Target goal is $1,500. This will not be hooked to a TV or be used in any way other than for a stand-alone audio system.
The “must haves” are:
-Be able to hook a computer directly to it (non-wireless is fine) to play digital, as well as stream music.
-Not a real need for AM/FM since it can pretty much be streamed these days...
My musical tastes run a full range from acoustic guitar to county to full blown hard rock/metal.
Here is what I'm currently looking at. Please keep in mind that I'm new at this and am still learning in the process!
Turntable: Pro-Ject Debut Carbon ($399)
CD Player: JVC XL-M401 ($0 - I've had it forever and it still works well)
DAC: Schiit Bifrost ($349)
Speakers: Polk Audio Tsi500 ($399)
Amp: NAD C 316BEE ($379) - Perhaps something more powerful?
Any and all ideas/suggestions and advice is greatly appreciated (please go easy on me....I'm new at this!
