Hifi Systems up to £ 1000
One box or Separates or Streaming??
One box gives you a lot for the money in one neat box but doesnt sound as good as the separates. A Marantz separate cd and amplifier will sound better. Streaming is the way forward in terms of access to music, will sound best from lossless cd rips, bit of a culture change but worth it. Sonos starts well under £1000, Linn massively better but starts around £1500 complete
One box systems can do so much these days, but many of them still sound a bit ropey. WE DONT DO THE ROPEY ONES!
The new Marantz MCR 611 works well
It gives cd, radio, internet radio, napster, usb, and music streaming and sounds like a proper hifi system, almost, when matched with the right speakers.
The MCR611 is great value at £ 349, complete with Q Acoustics speakers from £ 539, I'll even include speaker cables
It is more popular in all black but easier to see in a photo in the silver/black!
This next system is such good value it deserves a strong recommendation and it's only a little more!
Ipod users can put their music collection to using a streaming system
Options from Denon and Sonos at £ 399 matched with a good pair of speakers can get you up and running from as little as £ 580
Take a Sonos/Denon Amp and a pair of Q 300 to transform your listening experience for £ 850
Streaming from your pc/mac, Internet radio, and even Spotify/Napster/Tidal are all easily available
Start your 21st Century hifi system with this and you won't be disappointed
