I've just auditioned the Rega Brio-R with the Apollo played on Rega speakers. I really like the set-up but I can only afford the amp and cd player. Any ideas how well they would match with my current Klipsch RF 3ii? Thanks
and should do just fine with the 50 wpc Brio-R. If you like the Klipsch speakers you would be set for a while, if not, you can take some time to audition a variety in your price range and upgrade when you can.
I think the Music Hall A15.2 is the best integrated amplifier for under $1000.
I suggest the OPPO BDP-95 if you can afford it; IMO it is the best CD/SACD player for under $8000. It sounds better than my Ayre C5xe, which cost $6000.
If you don't want to spend $1000 for it (which is a huge bargain and a good investment), the BDP-93 is also quite good for half the price.
