Hi there,

After reading a few of your posts I thought id email and ask your advice on a set up.

I have a room 12 x 8

Im looking to get a reasonable setup for a small amount of cash – this will be my first set up.



My music tastes are indie as well as R&B I like a good punchy sound with clear vocals



What speakers and amp would you recommend I have the room for floor standers if needed?



Im looking to spend around £50 to £100 on the speakers and the same again on the amp

I know its not a lot but this is my first step into the unknown and I have been told that there is still some good second hand kit around out there that will serve me well.

Im going to use them to play music off my PC / ipad.



Speaker wise I’ve been looking at Kef Cresta 3 and Eltax I have also read good things about mission 751s and warfdale diamonds 9.1 q acoustics 2010



Amp wise I have heard good things about NAD and Cambridge audio amps any suggestions



Many thanks for any advice / input

I've just done pretty much the same thing for a 2nd system in my conservatory and I'm well happy with the results :cheer:

After much reading, I ended up buying one of the Denon 'made for UK' series amps, the PMA-355UK, as on many forums, it was suggested that these amps would easily drive most speakers, unlike say an Arcam (my original choice), which would need more careful matching.

I got a pair of Kef Q35 floorstanders to go with the Denon amp, which while still a bit of a chance, work excellently. Having had some experience of these a few years ago, I was quite confident in their abilities, but now they are in place the combination for streaming from my Airport Express is superb.

And best of all it's only cost me £125

Very pleased yes. Bass could be a touch tighter, but the speakers are currently flat on a stone floor. I'm sure when I get some spikes on they'll be even better.
