In Reply to: Need some ideas for a $1500 system... posted by bart on October 28, 2002 at 13:35:34:
I'm going to go along the lines of frozen below -
Cambridge Audio or Nad CDP - $350
Norh SE-9 integrated - $400
Moth Audio Cicadas - $600
or, if you have a DVD player already, you could add a CIA VDA-1 DAC for $350.
Single Ended tubes and high efficiency speakers at this price is pretty cool.
but I have heard them in a home system, driven by a DIY SE tube amp. No upper mid problem that I could hear, but it could be room or equipment dependent. I also did not listen at above average levels.
70's Sansui, Marantz, Kenwood or Pioneer off of E-Bay or at pawn shop for $50.
I gave at the office!
