Enjoy your new speakers
Best Living Room System for €300- €400 - Page 3
In terms of sound quality alone I don't think you can make a wrong choice by any measure.
A5+ are very good speakers for the price and so would be an amp-speaker combo (from what you listed).
The combo would be worth considering only if you have an actual use for buying separates, otherwise it's not worth losing sleep over.
I mean if you need some of the extra features those stereo receivers would give you (network streaming, radio tuner and so on).
If you do, then obviously that choice would suit you better.
I don't think sound quality is much of a factor in this decision, as both will sound largely similar.
OK so I'm all confused again and in dire need of advice. I am due to collect my A5+ tomorrow but I've seen a good deal on http://exceptional-av.co.uk/hifi/hifi-bundles/show/all.html for amp/speaker bundles. I'm now thinking should I go for one of these instead?? I am leaning towards the Dali Zensor 1 and the Marantz PM6005 or Marantz MCR 510. Please if someone could advise what would be my best option as I am due to collect the A5s tomorrow and I don't wanna make the wrong choice. Thanks

Did you look up Audyssey MultEQ yet to learn what it does? Room acoustics are a much bigger factor in SQ than whatever difference there might be between those amps.
