and for the receiver, what is a good budget receiver? (max budget still 500 euro)

With KEF speakers you know you pay attleast 50$ if not more for the name.
They are actually good speakers though but i dont have much other hi-fi speakers to compare them with.

Best advice was given by Tiihokatti.
Go to a Hi-Fi shop and listen.

Good Hi-Fi shops have listening rooms for you to listen in.

witch 1 would u recommend?
Dali Zensor 1 or Wharfedale Diamond 121

i hear lots of good things about the Dali but the only con for me would be that the bassreflexport is on the back witch is not optimal for me since it will be placed close to a wall where as the Wharfedale has a better bassreflexport for the situation i'm in.

the Dali's costs 298 euro a pair
Wharfedale costs 258 euro a pair

what opinions do u guys have about these 2?
what are the pros and what are the cons.
if the Dali's are sounding better ,would the price difference be worth it?

id also really like to squeeze a subwoofer in my budget i might raise my budget to 600/650 euro's
any recommended Subwoofer for 1 of these pair of speakers?

i don't have much knowledge about receivers and amplifiers,as long if it has a volume controller and doesn't make my pair of speakers underperform. (what price would i be looking at for these requirements?)
would u either recommend an amp or a receiver? (don't have much room left on my desk so i prefer a compact amp/rec)
it needs to be compatible with pc since im using this setup on my pc.
recommended amp/rec would also be helpfull and must also be compatible with either the dali's or wharfedale+ soon to be known sub.

regarding the local hifi store, there's little to no hifi store's around here
also thanks for the input so far guys i appreciate it! thumb.gif
