I am planning to buy a stereo (my current one is over 10 years old and pretty dead) and I have about $1000 total to spend, give or take a couple of hundred. I am sorta out of the way, and while I may be able to audition a couple of components, I probally won't be able to audition them together, so I need some advice.
From the reviews I've read, both the Jolida 1501A ($650) and the Rotel RA-1062 ($800) look pretty good, although I guess they'll sound pretty different. I was thinking of pairing them with the axiom M22ti. I still have an older energy sub for the bass. Maybe not the best, but the best for now.
Now I obviously cannot ask which amp to buy, but are there any potential problems with my set up? Is it unbalanced? Are there other options I should consider for the money?
Thanks for any advice.
