What do you think of my selection?
I have been away from high end audio market for quite a long time. I have decided to purchase a new system. My budget is very low (about $3.5k), and I live in a small town that does not have a high-end audio shop. I think the closest city that might have a nice one is Denver which is about an 8 hour drive. On top of that, I am handicapped and do not drive, so it would be a hassle to find someone to drive me there and back.
I have been reading reviews and talking to some people, and I have chosen the following equipment:
Marantz SA- 8003 Audio CD Player
Marantz PM-8003 Integrated Amplifier
PSB Image T55 Tower Speakers
This fits in my budget (I need to get quality cables and a cabinet), and I can, in the futre upgrade if need be. My listen room is rather large (25' x 20') with hard wood floors and a high ceiling. I listen to mostly rock, blues, jazz, and classical.
Base on the information above, what do you think about the equipment that I have picked out? Is there something you would substitute? If there any other model that, for a little bit more money, would be noticeably better?
Any advise you can offer would be greatly appreciated!
