I'm looking to upgrade my stereo in my bedroom soon but wanted to know what the best way to go about it was. I only listen to music in MP3 format via PC and even though I know exactly what quality they are (ripped by myself with EAC+LAME etc) they're obviously not CD quality. I'd like to get something decent like a separates system but I need to know that it wont be money wasted as my source is "rubbish" as it were. So far I've been looking at: An amp (haven't looked yet) Speakers - B&W 602 S3 around £300 and a relative bargain (so I've heard). Could look for some second hand. Acoustic Energy Aego 'M' System - Now £99. The mk1 system used to sell for £300 I think so this also seems like a bargain. ProMedia 2.1 and ProMedia GMX A-2.1 - haven't really looked at these much, but have heard good things about them. Would the B&W speakers absolutely blow away the Aego M system? I'd like to spend £300 as a max but I always look for the best bang for my buck/quid so if the separates dont 'sound' £200+ more than the Aego's then I'd get the Aegos. Similarly, if theres nothing that sounds as good as the B&W's for anywhere near the price I'd rather get those than want to upgrade from one of the other systems later on. Also, I dont have any room for floorstanders unfortunately. I'd need to have bookshelf + sub if necessary. Comments?
