I had $1700 budget for a whole system in the used market and I already have all the cables needed. I ended up getting the following: Alon 2 speakers ($700) Arcam Delta 290 integrated amp ($250) EAD DSP 7000mk3 DAC ($420) Melos DD2 transport ($350) I have Discovery 123 speaker cables, Goertz Micro Purl Silver interconnects and a TaraLabs Prism digital cable. I was wondering what the comments are from fellow audiophiles about what I ended up getting - could I have done better with my budget?..what would you have done differently?....just curious.
I am very familiar with the speakers and that is a killer deal. Probably hard to get a better integrated amp for the price. Haven't heard the digital pieces but you can get an audio note cd 2 for $600 or less used and that is one nice player. Make sure you bi-wire those speakers.
