I am not an audiophile but love to listen to a clear nice music , I was at Magnolia a few days ago and came across Bowers and wilkins 685 S2 book shelve speakers (within my budget) , they sounded good , I actually liked the CM5gb models at $1500 but that is beyond my reach at this moment as i need to buy an amplifier (or receiver ) too , I am not familiar with any of these stuffs (audio) , and differences between Amplifiers and Receivers and Blah blah ,.
I read on bowers Thread and those Bowers Wilkins lovers and read many reviews about KEF Q300 Etc etc , I am totally confused now , I need a pair of very good speakers (book shelve size) and an amp or receiver , i listen to music about 80% of the time and 20% movies .
is there anyone out there who can help me please ? i rather go somewhere and listen to them instead of buying them online (i will do that if no choice though) , I reside in Orange County ,CALIFORNIA.
I very much appreciate your help on this matter.
