Audio setup with Airport Express

I have a small apartment. I would like a speaker setup for listening to music. It's an Apple apartment, so I figure the path of least resistance is to get an Airport Express and then connect speakers somehow. Can anyone recommend either (1) a specific set of powered speakers that reproduce music accurately, or (2) a separate amp to put between an input like the Express and a pair of bookshelfs like the Pioneer SP-BS22-LRs.

Upgrading to kit stereo tube amp from 5.1 digital receiver

In past questions (1, 2), I've described my stereo setup and my desire to build a stereo tube amp. I have no worries about actually building the kit amp, but I'm not sure what I'd do with all my speakers. In thinking about this, I realized I don't know much about my stereo in the first place. Can you help me understand what it actually means to have a stereo amp? [more inside]

Distortion spins me right round

Recently I received an old hifi (stereo receiver with aux and phono inputs) and two EPI speakers from a family member. The system is quite old, but headphones sound great, as does one of the two speakers. The other sounds blown. What are my options in New York City? [more inside]
