Best bang for your buck audiophile products - Page 3

post #31 of 65

I have to second the Martin Logan as I have the Ascents, Theater center, Aeruis as sides, and a Velodyne sub.  Add any Krell and you rock the house or just relax with classical or New Age ....  That Oppo is also a great choice

HRT MS II. Good DAC for a good price.

 

Stax SRS-2050. Currently a used one is for sale here - $400 shipped.

 

Best bang for my buck? You betcha!

 

Ok, maybe not high-end. Sounds good nonetheless.

I think I must also save for Magnepan MMG speakers.biggrin.gif

the motion series are good with cambridge audio 650 r and 751bd and are a nice price... can't compete with krell but still you could buy that sports car you have always wanted with the change!

when i say can't compete with krell i am not talking about krell speakers because they make the best amps sacd players blue ray players and ipod docks but westlake audio tower sm1s are the best speakers you can get...you couldn't put into words how good those speakers sound with krell evolution ones...it's like the 8th wonder of the world or something!

The Oppo is a universal player that also can playback HD FLAC files through a DAC, all-in-one.

 

Also, a home-built minimal computer running linux MPD... Is just what some audiophile brands are selling as media servers at workstation prices.

 

Then, FWIR, LakePeople G100 headphone amp.

Sennheiser HD-518.

High-end cans at ridiculous price!

when a new amp or cd player comes out the older one costs a lot less than when it was first released and if it was an ex-demo model you will get it for very little and that would be an "best bang for your buck audiophile product"as you call it....

 Most of us are laptop/Mac based these days, throw in a competent external DAC which also applies to the majority..

 

 How to make the jump to 2 channel speaker goodness for the least amount of money?

 

 Simple, grab a set of your favorite 25W-100W bookshelves (I recommend going second hand)

 and then lash out on the Rega Brio R integrated amp with remote ($900AUD down here)

 

  My favorite speaker at the moment would be the Vienna Acoustic Haydn Grand Symphony

 (I've seen guys with 20+ years experience look for the subwoofer when the bass kicks in)

 

 Absolutely brilliant for the cash. Assuming you already had the laptop and DAC ~ $3500AUD approx

 later you have a speaker setup that would make many a CD transport/floor stander enthusiast 

 raise an eyebrow or two :-)

 

 I cannot think of a cheaper way to taste Hi-Fi than this

 Have you spent a little bit of time with the PS1000?

 

 I'm currently saving up for one at my end of the world ~ figure Johnny Grado has given me enough good times to warrant

 a blind purchase, have to live dangerously smile.gif

 Very curious of the GR10 ~ but no one seems to talk about them too much, I know my local Grado dealer in Melbourne had a special

 on them recently which would suggest he had trouble shifting the stock. A shame because they appear to be a great product from

 the reviews I've seen.

 

 325i sound in an IEM? Sounds like heaven!
