A friend of mine is good friends with Jude here in MI, so that's how I learned about this site. Once I started looking, I'm suprised I didn't get into learning about and listening to high quality audio long ago.
I'm in the market for a rig which will excell in playing classical music in a room where a TV is also playing (me on couch with wife watching the boob tube). I'm guessing that a closed around the ear with an amp, DAC and a desk-top-sized source to play CDs is what I'm envisioning. Solo piano and cello are favorites. Do I need noise-cancelling?
I know I'll find what I need on this site, but can someone make a rec to help me distill the wealth of info in this site. I'm thinking about $1500 for the entire rig, but will expand into loudspeakers and a set-up for watching movies at some point. The Shure 1540 looks appetizing. Does it fit the bill, and what sources should I consider.
Thanks, now off to the search function.
