Well, I've gone through the forum and found a huge range of speakers I want to audition, but there's no way in hell I'll be able to do it. I'm looking at speakers that cost between 400-600 used, preferably bookshelves. They'll be driven by an amp that I haven't bought yet (Denon POA-8300 or Parasound HCA-1203A.. or maybe a Rotel). I listen to music (rock) 70-80% of the time;however, if a speaker company doesn't make a good center, then I'll look elsewhere. I currently have Klipsch Cornwalls, so some brightness in a new speaker really won't bother me, but Sonus Faber happens to be the speaker I'm leaning towards right now (go figure since they Klipsch and Sonus sound completely different). Why am I changing speakers?? I live in an apt. and need something smaller. Also, I do have a sub (Paradigm PW-2500). The list: NHT M5 (listened to the SB3 and thought something was missing) Totem Mite PSB Stratus Mini Sonus Faber Concertino (favorite so far) Polk LSi7/LSi9 Vienna Acousics Bach/Haydn (briefly listened to Bachs, definately need to go for another audition) Boston VR-M60 (highs were a bit too bright when turned up, although I will listen to them again) ACI Emerald Von Schweikert VR-1 Dynaudio Audience 42 Linn Katan Onix Rocker 250 Meadowlark Swallow Triangle Titus Quad 12L Totem Arro JM Lab Cobalt 806 Usher X719 RBH 61-SE Paradigm Studio 20v2/40v2 Soliloquy Sat5/5.0 Axiom M22ti Kef Q1 Energy Veritas 2.1 Klipsch (forgot which bookshelves, but I didn't like these) I'm sure I may have missed some speakers, so feel free to add to my list. I did listen to the Monitor Audio Silver bookshelves (S2 I believe) and was not impressed. Are there any speakers I should automatically remove from my list? I'm probably going to want a speaker that won't kill my ears when turned up, so metal domes may be out unless they're more laid back. Thanks for any help.
