THE 2500 DOLLAR SPEAKERS that SING
« on: 28 Nov 2016, 09:53 pm »
 :D  Hi everybody.  I sold my big stereo and going with a smaller one.  I bought an integrated amp with 225 hp .. An Anthem here in Canada used.
       I do love used as i'm on a budget now.  I have a Rega p9 for big plastic discs and an apple dig digital set up. I'm looking for a smaller speaker with sweet mids and uppers and being in a condo or appt i will not need large lows.  I am all ears ????  :D
           There are so many choices out there. I don't have access to brick and mortar stores and used is more my style now. I do have to admit the Philharmonic speakers look amazing .. but new and US exchange is a big turn off .  But i know,,  ya get what ya pay for !!   ha   Any help on the matter THANKS .  the dam paradox of choice gets me every time ,,,, ha   :D

Your budget would allow for new Spatial M4 Turbo S.

Can you build a cabinet?  If so, look at the GR Research X-Statik kit.  Much cheaper than your limit, but no compromise in quality.  Kits are great that way.  :thumb:

Yeah, I really liked the Carbon 7's that I heard years ago, but they like really beefy power and with shipping and the exchange rate with Canada is well above $2500 Canadian.  Don't know about their cheaper models.

Pat,

Why buy used when you can buy new at used prices?  :scratch:

And why blow the whole budget when you can get >>>THESE <<< for 900 USD?  :thumb:

Easy: preamp with phono section (but ideally it will have XLR (balanced) outputs.  The K&H speakers have just one XLR input per speaker.

Here is a pair you might can win for free. These look awesome, $2500 for chrome, $1675 for black or silver and free shipping from Germany. Rave review is coming soon from Positive Feedback.

I entered $1500 min/$2500 max for price on canuckaudiomart and came up with this:

http://www.canuckaudiomart.com/classifieds/3-speakers/?price_min=1500&price_max=2500&photo=Y&sortby=price_desc

I think there are 159 listings. Hope this helps.

I combed the Canuck classifieds last night with this price bracket in mind.

Bigears are you out in the western part of the country?  Assume shipping is not an issue, so deals from anywhere should be OK.

If it were me, and I was moving out of my dedicated room (the horror!) into a shared space again, I would likely return to stand mounts.  Actually I still use stand mounts!  I have played with floorstanders, but really like good stand mounts.

I saw some NOLA Boxers listed, they have a great rep. 
I saw some Totem Rainmakers, they too have an excellent reputation. 
I really enjoy my Focal Electra 906's (from late 90's not the newer Aria 906 which has lots of followers too).
Saw a few Harbeths that might be worth a poke if you like their sound.
At least one set of PMC's caught my attention too - they love a good kick from an amp like yours!
Lastly I have a soft spot for the Dynaudio Focus 160's listed for $1600 or so from Audio Eden (good guys to deal with).  Those would also mate well with the grunt of the Anthem.

Good luck!
