For around ( a bit more) that price you could get my speakers (sig). For a bit less you could get other pro-audio active speakers and a DAC/pre-amp such as the new cambridge or the Beresford.

Either option will give you better quality than anything you can get with separates for the same price. If I knew 10 years ago what I know now, I would have saved a fortune.

At the very least I recommend giving it a try. If it isn't for you (the initial shock of detail is disturbing), then Ebay is definitely worth thinking about for value. I wouldn't personally go near a Pioneer A400/A300X as they fetch far too much for mystic otherworldly reasons which can't really be quantified with current science :)
