Hi all,

 

Im looking for two bookshelf speakers to connect them with my pc.

Currently, I have the pioneer vsx-422 amplifier and the creative x-fi sound blaster titanium HD soundcard.

These are the requirements I need met.....

The price will be around 300$, will be used for high quality audio especially for music.

HTD Level 3 arguably the best tweeter there is, at the price

Could you live with a 4" mid-woofer or do you have to have a 5 1/2 or larger woofer?

Also...does it have to be new?

Rule 1.

Tell us where you are so we don't recommend US ID companies(HTD) or companies with a North America footprint(Axiom).

Hmmmm thats definitely a little tougher.

 

PSB is a great choice but I would also add B&W to your research.  And Im pretty sure Axiom ships world wide so you might want to drop them a line.

Axiom does ship worldwide...but they aren't going to be $300...once in Greece.

 

The KEF C3 would be a good choice. (The C series may be for us "idiot neanderthal Yanks"...as it isn't on Amazon UK or DE)

Dali Zensor 1 (Dali has never made a lousy speaker)

Wharfedale Diamond (a speaker I wish we could get in the states)

Q Acoustics Q2010i (don't have the slightest clue who they are...but this one gets rave reviews)
