omnivore newbie's dilemma

Looking for a few suggestions for sound.

I listen to intense music..a lot of contemporary classical stuff, computer and electronic music, jazz. I got bitten by the audio bug on a trip to Turkey, after listening to a number of great systems, all out of my price range by about 5 or 6 figures. My friend had me listen to an "inexpensive" setup though which I liked the sound of: proac tablets, primaluna amp and I think rega jupiter CD player. Something like that.

So far, I've only managed to score the proac tablets. I'm taking most of the music from imac to a beefy but inexpensive JVC amp and directly into the tablets. It sounds really beautiful but I'm thinking of grabbing the tube amp for a little more detail, etc. Am I on the right track?

Huge question: are you buying new, or used? You can buy & sell used components, usually w/o losing much, so you can get to experience a lot more diff. equipment for the $$.

If you like the proac tablets, maybe try a post like: "what amp & pre-amp are best w/proac tablets"?

Also, you may go thru many, many, many components until you finally get the sound you want.....don't let it throw you.
