Re: Hi-fi in NYC

For a nice stereo for a NYC studio try the following @ $1100 new: NAD 320BEE Integrated Amp ($400; new - Harvey Electronics); Music Hall CD 25 CD Player ($490 new; steve at questforsound@aol.com); Wharfedale Diamond 8.1 Speakers($200 new - www.audioadvisor.com). Purchase some interconnects & speaker cables ($125)from Signal Cable (www.signalcable.com) or AV Cable (www.avcable.com) and you should be set. Wharfedale also makes a nice floorstander (Diamond 8.3) which retails for $350. The system will give you very musical sound ... nice detail and punch with vocals and instruments; solid mid-range. I am not a big fan of buying used, so that is why I recommended new equipment. I own all the equipment that I recommended and use it in either my bedroom system or TV room system in my Queens apartment. BTW, other good equipment to consider: Rotel RA-01 Integrated Amp ($400 new; Stereo Exchange); or the Philips DVD963 DVD/SACD Player ($400 new; J&R Music). Good luck, Rich
