but this concerns my Dads request for me to upgrade his setup.
He has an existing (near 25 year old) Rega Mira amp and some floor standing Rega speakers (look very much like Rega R5's) - same sort of age.
I'm very well aware that amps really need to be paired with speakers -
Would you have any comment on these??? in any combination.
He is under pressure ;-) to clear some floor space in the front room so the floor standers have to go !!! This is why we are looking at Bookshelf units.
Hi Guys,I have my own existing HiFi setup but this concerns my Dads request for me to upgrade his setup.I'd like to short list 3 systems and get him to a demo room for audition.He's getting on a bit now but still has a fair ear and listens to almost exclusively Classical Music/Choral/Opera etc. He has an existing (near 25 year old) Rega Mira amp and some floor standing Rega speakers (look very much like Rega R5's) - same sort of age.He's looking to upgrade and has budget of £1000 for both amp and speakers (stereo only required)Can anyone give me some recommendations please. Other characerisations would be:Neutral (what I call BBC) sound.High volumes will not be required.Bookshelf speakers to mount either side of an archway between Front room and an annex.Dad likes my Rotel 1590/1582mk2 setup with BW CM10s (I play from FLAC media through Jriver MC22 and a Benchmark DAC. But this is out of budget. But perhaps if one of the Rotel lesser amps with BW CM1's is suitable maybe that could fit Your thoughts gentlemen.Regards
