When rebuilding your life, one of the first priorities is the stereo, of course. I’m in a small apartment now rather than a big house, so I decided to build a budget system around a pair of Ascend Acoustics CBM-170 bookshelf speakers. I found good prices on a Denon AVR-1906 A/V Receiver and a Denon DVD-1720 DVD/CD player so I picked those up after reading a few reviews and deciding “Good Enough”. I added in the Music Hall turntable, Musical Fidelity phono preamp, Creek headphone amp, and Marantz monoblock amps I salvaged from my last system and now have an operational stereo system. The CBM-170s are impressive little budget bookshelf speakers. I’m currently exercising them with James Carter’s Chasin’ the Gypsy. Sounds great.
