So my current system is Sonos, a Primare i32 integrated and WB Arcs.
This occupies the same part of the room as the TV, soundbar etc.
The Sonos can’t be messed with, or at least must still be available when the dust settles (SWMBO likes it just a little bit).
To be frank it only gets listened to as (mostly) background music. Very occasionally I’ll do some serious-ish listening on my own, but it’s pretty rare.
Since I live in London space is always at a serious premium.
I’ve been toying with changing things around, to a point which most people would consider a downgrade, but hey ho, there are considerations other than sound quality: space, looks, and the chance to have a fiddle with a new shiny.
Random things that have caught my eye include
KEF LS50 wireless - active digital all-in-ones
The Moon Neo ACE - great bit of kit, but definitely more of a side-grade. Same box count once I’m done.
Naim Mu-So - a music centre for the noughties. Would probably clash space-wise with the soundbar under the TV. And the soundbar is probably non-negotiable too. Hmm, then again I could plug all the HDMI crap into the TV instead of the soundbar, and take the digital out from the TV into the Mu-So.
Any other ideas? Must do all the usual digital stuff, and preferably cuts down on the box count. Maximum budget of a couple of grand.
