Hi,

 

I am trying to get an entry level HiFi stereo for my study room.  After some browsing and thoughts, I am down to 2 choices.  May I ask, in your professional opinions, which is better and/or more worthy to purchase?  I need it solely to play CDs and maybe sometimes connecting to iProducts.

 

1. Yamaha MCR-223 (or MCR-323 with an upgrade of the finish)

2. Denon D-M39S

Thank you very much

Are you limited by space or money?

They're pretty much equivalent. If you have the space and can spend a little more, you would be better off buying separate components than an all-in-one system. But if you have space/money constraints, those are reasonable choices. Id' say go with whichever is the best deal.

Thank you for your response.

 

I am both space and budget tight.  I guess I will go with the one with a better deal. :)

How about this?

Hopefully I can get it or make it for cheaper!

Seriously? He's looking for transportation and you are suggesting a $sports car.

I prefer the more "classic" look of the Yamaha if that matters anything, but can't stack anything on top with those jacks. Would be nice to have built-in wireless, BT or Airplay but oh well.
