    Speaker & Amp for Marantz CD5400

    Hello all
    I've had a cobbled together set-up for a good few years, that currently comprises of;

    Marantz CD5400
    Sony TA-F448E
    Mordaunt-Short 10i

    I'm sticking with the Marantz for now, but want to invest about 800 ($1,500) over an integrated amp and some larger floor standing speakers.

    I'm very out of touch and need some pointers of where to start auditioning some kit (ie - what products to even consider).

    I don't need to spend all that either - it's an upper limit. If there's anything listed at richersounds.com that would be worth a look - that's ideal.

    I own the Cambridge Audio Azur 640A integrated and am very pleased with the quality of sound. I have read that CA is a house brand for Richer Sounds. The new 540A V2 might be a good amp for you. I am not sure what speakers they carry so I can not help you with a recommendation. Of course with speakers it is best to trust your ears.

    I just checked out their site and I would say check out the KEF Q5.
