I have a Arcam Alpha 6 Amp and Mission 751 speakers that I bought in the mid 90's. Due to the birth of my son they have been in the loft since 2000. Now my son is older I want to return to the world of proper hifi and was wondering if I should get them serviced and find a new CD player, or plump for a new system. My budget is ~£350. I was contemplating the Marantz CD6002 or Cambridge Audio Azur 640C V2 if I kept the amp and speakers. Does anyone have any advice on which would sound better with the Arcam and Mission? If I was going for a new system I was thinking about the Cambridge Audio setup which was reviewed in Jan's What Hifi or the Onkyo CR515 and MS 902i that I've seen on offer. I know the real answer is to go and audition them, but at this price point, some of the retailers I've contacted don't seem interested. Thanks in advance for any advice.
