I'm currently looking for a nice toned down setup for a small room. I was originally looking around for a stereo receiver, but having a cd player built in would be a nice addition. I wouldn't have to deal with separates and more cords! The NAD L715 which reminds me of the old NAD l40 caught my eye but NAD always seems to be behind the curve on newer technologies like USB's but I've always liked their sound. Are there other viable options out there? A cd player and receiver was never a really attractive options so I"m guessing most of the big name guys never really bothered to bring a contender to the market. So the question would be: am I barking up the wrong tree trying to do everything in one box? Should I just try and find a nice stereo receiver and add a simple CD player?
The room is at most 15x14 or so and I'm driving some Insignia bookshelves which I'll probably upgrade as soon as I find a good deal on craigslist. I'll never be playing it too loudly so loads of honking power is not a must.
Any suggestions would be helpful!
