sonus faber grand piano home


I've just bought these speakers. Amplification is the audiomat arpege.
Which cd-player and cables will suit the best?
(cd player may cost 1000-1500 €, cables in the same pricerange)

Thx a lot.

Given your great Audiomat amp, and if you want a CDP that will satisfy for more than 5 years, suggest you consider a Vecteur L-4.2 which retails for USD4,950. It and Audiomat integrateds are a match made in heaven and they're built like a Rolex (beautiful and rugged). Several good cables work well with these units, including the Actinote MB series (better than their MA ICs).

Have you heard the Equation 25 speakers and the Prelude Reference MK2 speakers?
hoppah, sorry for the tardy reply.

I always suggest buying the most musical sounding source you can afford and use whatever ICs you have until you can afford better ones. If the source is average, or below, you will be painfully aware of its shortcomings should you use good, revealing cables in the chain. Then you'll want a better sounding CDP!

I see I made a typo in the last paragraph of my above 1/21 reply. I meant the Prelude reference MK2 integrated amp. It's more revealing than the Arpege...not that the Arpege is a slouch...and can drive almost any load.
