Go on richersounds.co.uk and you will need is there and very well priced.
If you just wan't it for music not a home cinema then don't bther with a pro logic 1, just make sure it's around 100 watts per channel, that's more than enough to blow the roof off.

For good sound quality, go for a decent 2 channel amp with no frills. Just a volume control.

B+W are a very good choice.

Depending on how much you have to spend, richersounds should be ok for most hifi needs. If you have thousands to spend then go else where.

I recommend reading through some what hifi magazines and visiting a few shops to audition your setup, before you go to richer sounds and buy it cheap.

^^^^^^^^^
now that is good advice.
Ive got technics and just up graded my speakers to floor standers that are 3way.
100 watts each and they were from R/sounds. should be £189, paid £89.
sound the balls!

you are best off just going to a hifi shop and listening to them with whatever speakers you want.

It is absolutely no good buying something because someone else thinks its a great model.

If you want to start some where, I recommend the meridian cd players, can get them for around £500 on ebay.

I stopped my hifi hobby, as I started listening to mp3, if you are planning to do the same, I dont think you should invest loads into a system.

Oh, and if you can buy a decent mains power filter, it makes a difference to the sound quality, imo.

I made my own, and was very surprised.

Filters any noise out of the supply, like noise from electrical appliances, spikes in power, stuff like that.

Very technical explanation i know.lol.

Any 1 can link a amp. if you can set your PS2 or x-box you can do that.

for pc, just get something like my current setup. Home cinema amp and 5 speaker surround sound.

up to 10 percent distortion is created by the speakers
