Default Getting into audio...

Right, I'd like to start taking an intrest in audio - Specificaly component systems. My budget is very low, and I guess that this is Hypothetical ATM. I would proberbly get my stuff from eBay.... I know that Akai, Technics and Teac make some good stuff.

So, and anyone find me some reasonable components (Mainly an Amp ATM) on eBay UK?

Sorry if this a bit vauge!

Thanks

Well, I guess I can save. But for low end amp... second hand... around 50? Maybe more. I'm not sure.

You should definitely save up more money if you want a decent receiver.

Harman Kardon HK 3390

I'm using the Harman Kardon HK 3490, which has slightly more power than this model. It's a great receiver, and I highly recommend it for a stereo system.

That looks nice - And I'm sure it sounds nice. However that's out of my price range. Maybe in a couple of years when I have a proper income, but ATM there is no chance, really Thanks, though!

Well, I'm honestly not sure what to suggest at this point. eBay.co.uk seems very limited compared to their domestic counterpart. The same goes with Amazon.co.uk. You could ultimately try this as a last resort, but it's getting some mixed reviews.

Sherwood RX-4105 Stereo Receiver

http://www.amazon.com/Sherwood-RX-41.../dp/B0002EPWC0

Don't purchase that yet. I'll see if I could find anything else.

Okay, try this. I haven't heard of this model, so you'll need to do more research on your own to make a conclusion.

That looks awsome. I will try to find some reviews, and have a word with my brother about it. Thanks, 01001010
