Beginner to Home A/V need some advices

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I'm new to the Home A/V world and would like to learn more about home audio setup and buying guide. If there is any recommendation on videos / books / magazines to improve my knowledge at this field would be really appreciate

I've narrow down my options into KEFQ300, Roksan Kandy K2 TR5, Quad, Monitor Audio RX2. I have an audition on the Monitor Audio RX1 with a REL T5 Sub hooked up on a NAD T757, was pretty good. Any suggestion / recommendation on better speakers that i don't know are welcome.

So my current pick is a pair of Monitor Audio RX2, Monitor Audio RX Centre, and i'm not sure about the sub and receiver yet.

Not sure that i should go for Denon / Marantz / NAD receiver or should i use an PrePro + amp.

Type of musics that i like are such as:
Diana Krall / Kenny G / Andrea Bocelli / Eric Clapton / Norah Jones / AR Rahman / Tchaikovsky / Beethoven / Mozart / Michael Buble / Beegees / Eagles / Johannes Linstead

Genre :: Jazz / Blue Jazz / Bossa Nova / Classical / opera / Vocal / Latin / Lifestyle Musics

Thank You.

Something that took many of us here a long, long time to realise is that the room is, in most instances, more important than the gear - get yourself a copy of Floyd Toole's book, Sound Reproduction.

Room first, then gear

Word of advice...be cautious with that book. A lot of folks misinterpret what Toole is saying and go off on incorrect tangents when applying it. I would say that the Master Handbook of Acoustics is a bit more informative.

Would this be a good book to learn about taking measurements and interpreting response curves?
