Integrated Streaming Systems
These will feature an amplfier and streamer in one neat box and then a pair of speakers. Performance above cd quality with the convenience of one box and no wires.
What's not to love? Great options are available from both Linn and Naim
The Naim Uniti Atom is a beautiful thing. Nice dimensions, big machined dial, full colour display and it also sounds great! Hard to beat at £ 1999
For a different take on the sound check out and compare the Linn Sekrit DSM at £ 1750
This couldn't be more different, no frills, simple case, no display, it does sound good though !
Matching speakers include Linn's own Majik 109 at £990 but also listen to the multi-award winning Kef LS50. They really sing on the end of either of these. £799 per pair is amazing value for these gorgeous speakers
Prefer a cd or turntable based system?,
Rega are very hard to beat just now. Take the Apollo/Brio cd/amp combination and add the new RX3 speakers. £ 2270 plus cables never sounded so good! Or add the Planar 3/Elys turntable for an additional £ 649
See the Rega products page for more information
Naim Audio can also give you a complete CD solution in this price range. The CD5Si and matching Nait5i may be the stripped down cousins of the range above but they are not stripped down in performance. £ 2200 gives the famous Naim crisp dynamics and detail and still allows enough budget for a great pair of speakers, just ! Also love the mechanical pull out cd tray. Like setting on a record! I have recently used this combo with the Kef LS50 and Rega RX1s. (Note, there is now a £599 offer on RX1s, check that it's still on !) Both are brilliant, but different, and both keep the total under £3000
