I'd like to set up a 2-channel system in my room to go along with my current set-up, for which the audio end consists of: Denon AVR-3802 Paradigm Studio 40s (fronts) Paradigm Studio 20s (rears) SVS 20-39PC Sony 300 disc megachanger If possible I'd like to continue to use the Sony megachanger, as it is incredibly convenient, especially with my Pronto. I'm not sure if that means I'd have to get an external DAC, or whatever, but if possible I'd like to keep using it. I'm not set on using the Studio 40s up front, but I wouldn't mind switching the speaker connections between the 2-channel setup and the HT setup and using the Studio 40s for both. My total budget for this is $4000 +/-$1000. However, I should add that I'd like to keep costs down as much as possible, unless I'm significantly sacrificing sound quality. So I guess I would need a 2-ch preamp, amp, maybe a DAC, maybe a separate CD player, maybe a new pair of speakers. I would not mind buying used. Also, I am not interested in SACD or DVD-audio, as neither format has any music that I would listen to consistently. I saw a Proceed Pre (2-channel pre-amp) and a Proceed Amp Two on audiogon, each for ~$1000. Any good? I was thinking maybe something like that either with the Studio 40s or new speakers. But I am incredibly open here, and will be doing some serious research and auditioning. This purchase will probably begin in March and continue through June/July. So please, I'd appreciate any and all advice you guys can give. Thanks.
