Hello all

.

Good to be here among fellow audionuts! Well I need your help in deciding my budget hifi system. My options are -

a) Marantz CD6002 + PM6002

b) Cambridge Audio 640C v2 + 640A v2

c) Pioneer PD-D6-J + A-A6-J

I'm planning to team this up with Wharfedale Diamond 9.1, (Sub150 optional) and QED Anniversay Cables.

Please help me decide which one to go for as unfortunately all of them sounds good to me and are priced almost the same.

Pioneer being the least and Marantz demanding the most!

Personally I'd go for the Marantz, but then have always like the Marantz sound. I'd partner them with the Mordaunt-Short 902i speakers - the fact Marantz distributes M-S in Europe means there's a synergy between the two brands.

But hold fire until next week when we have a test of one-makes systems in the January issue. on sale December 13.
