Trying to put together a bang for buck apartment stereo music setup that has Bluetooth, primarily going to use with Bluetooth since I don't use google or apple stuff so chrome cast audio or airplay isn't practical I just want all audio beamed from my Surface Pro 4 to my music system, so I can watch videos with the speakers too.
As much as the KEF LS50 Wireless 2200$
is tempting as a lover of music, it's damn expensive, not released yet, and I'm but a university student so I should keep something to look forward to and be somewhat fiscally responsible
Thinking the QA 3020s 250$
The QA 3000 series stand 125$ or
the Concept 20 stands 250$
(speaker stands don't really get obsolete, is it worth longterm to get the better stands I'm thinking??)
The cheapest seemingly quality Bluetooth enabled amp/receiver that can power the speakers: Yamaha RS202 receiver 150$
Something like the NAD C338 would be ideal as a source of power/signal to the speakers, but then my budget is blown halfway to the LS50 Wireless which everything built in to the speakers and better sound at that (for much more money granted..)!
So something that's 500-700$~ dollars versus 2200$ for the LS50 Wireless.
I'm just concerned that compromising on the source of power/signal to the 3020s might be a mistake, but getting a solidly quality source/signal amp/dac that has Bluetooth integrated pushes me past the point where the extra 1000$ or so to a fully integrated superior system starts feeling worth it.
Competing speakers 300$ or under: KEF Q100, ELAC B5/B6.
