General audio topics that don't fit into specific categories.

And now for something completely different!

Couldn't help myself, there.

No one has ever asked me to help them choose a Stereo. Well, maybe once. How many audiophiles does one meet in a lifetime? Not many unless you attend shows ;-)

Since, your from England, isn't Cambridge Audio a British designer and manufacturer of fine, mostly affordable, audio gear?

Anyway, not sure if my advice is really good or not, but why not get a relatively inexpensive stereo receiver, two nice monitor loudspeakers, a subwoofer as a bonus, because not absolutely necessary unless you are dancing to the music and have very considerate neighbors!

Alternatively, NAD has similar offerings that look modern, with builtin DAC, which I think you really want.

Yes, it bypasses the home theater, > 2 loudspeakers paradigm, but IMO may be better suited to music within your budget.

Loudspeakers, well, I have some PSB Titans that sell for just over $200 and coupled with a subwoofer, many people could be plenty happy IMHO.
