Hello all,

After being a music lover for many years i decided to fork some cash out and buy some semi decent headphonesand i was amazed at the diffrence listening to Stevie Ray Vaughan live was amazing.

I need some advice on buying a system that works best for me, I am looking at spending around £800 max.

Current Setup: i am playing Music through my PC burning my cds to Flac and playing through Jriver Media Center and have a Asus Xonar DG 5.1 PCI Sound Card with built in Headphone Amp and a pair of DT990 PRO - 250 OHM.

What i am looking for is spending around 800 pounds on getting a amp and speakers to add to my current setup which will mainly used for movies, flac audio and headphone listening late at night and games.

If anyone can give me some advice and know of any good shops around Hampton Court / Kingston area that would be great.

Cheers,

~J

Looking at reviews the ma bx5 speakers sound great and are easily in my price range. I like the look of the mini system but I don't really need a cd deck or radio so wouldn't it be better to get a amp that is suited better to just headphones and speakers or is that amp best at that price range ?

I will look at some more reviews when I get home thanks for your help so far.

There's a Richer Sounds in Kingston on the Richmond Road if I remember rightly. Good place to audition some gear.

I reckon a pair of active speakers might work for you. Nfortunately £800 not quite enough to get AVIs but some good ideas here

Yes there is still a richer sounds there.

I have found a Marantz PM6003 for 149 pounds which got good reviews but it is getting old now but i assume it is better value for money than getting a 6004 ?

So i am thinking of getting that amp and look in some shops at speakers maybe Monitor Audio BX2 (249 pounds) which would put my total at 400 pounds which is well below my top budget.
