Mmm cloney audio.. *drool*
they got some nice stuff...
no lifestyle stuff - B&O stuff
and all that looks nice, but
nowhere near as good a sound
quality as seperates.
We've a few (quite old) B&O things at home.
They're based on phillips components internally
which have been tweaked for better
sound and so on. They're very fragile
though. And ridiculously expensive
to get repaired. They do look very nice
but given the choice i'd rather seperates.
ok i'm waffling - check out Creek - they used
to do some very small amps for relatively
reasonable price. On a slightly different
approach you could check out active speakers
- ie: speakers with in-built amplification.

(just googled for it, and it looks kinda small alright)... do you want a
hifi quality amp, or just something reasonable? Does it have to look good?
greenweld might have something (www.greenweld.co.uk) or try Maplins for
all the parts <g>

DubLinn HiFi... again, for the people to whom putting down 12K on a CD

you're into serious lifestyle stuff, and it's seriously expensive normally.
