I have a relatively decent turntable as well as a CD player but the receiver I'm using as an amp is gigantic, old and takes up a ton of space (although it works perfectly). To save space but also to upgrade to better quality I was thinking of the NuForce.
I'm no audiophile but I can definitely tell when equipment is opening up a better experience of the music. The NuForce is designed for desktop listening with a PC but I'm planning on powering either a couple of bookshelf speakers or a couple of larger Pinnacle living room speakers.
If anyone has thoughts on an alternative piece of equipment that can meet my space needs but also match the kinds of reviews of quality I'm seeing about the NuForce - or if you think the NuForce is just a bad idea for what I want to do (overall living room listening, movies, turntable, CDs...basically have it power my entire set up) and you have other suggestions in the same price range, let's hear em.
Fire away with questions too and I'll update as much info as I can. Like I said I'm not an audiophile so I don't really even know what kind of info would help answer this question.
