Which System is Right For Me?

I'm about to start work on my first true "hifi" setup. I have 3 different ideas about what I want to do, for all of these setups I want to add subwoofers at a later date, but I don't think it's in the budget right now. I want streaming capabilities with all of these setups, but the main goal is to play my vinyls. My listening position is about 9' from the speakers in a smallish room. I prefer a more neutral sound because I listen to a lot of different types of music and I want all of it to sound good. I'm willing to replace components with others if I chose a bad one but they have to keep to similar price ranges.

Small Bookshelf Speakers

Speakers - Dynaudio Evoke 10 $1600

Amp - Outlaw Audio RR2160 $1000

Dear Cosmic,

Did you get sorted with your set up? Like you I am relatively new to the audiophile world. I have The Denon PMA-600NE which is great but the bass is not as I would have liked. I am using Elac Debut 2. 62 speakers. I checked out both the Denon and Elacs before buying and were advised they were the best for the buck.

I have a question for you, if you bought the Plana 3, do you like it? This is probably my next upgrade

Cheers and take care

For the price...

Outlaw as the amp
KefLS50 + stands
Buy some solid speaker cable
Project Turntable

If you get the craving later for more low end go SVS or REL if you wanna go big
