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 ???? 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
lot of good ideas here. Thanks soooo much everyone. This is a mistake i can't make. 'GET-ER-DONE' like Larry says ,, but done well. A good point brought up about low level listening. I will miss my midnight basement concert sessions ,, ha. My ears thank me. The 300's look cool, but i have rca only. Are studio speakers cold and sterile ?? Flavourless ?? I just cashed in on a new amp , darn. paradox of choice again ???? haha

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!
: . Low volumes ,, smaller room and up close. This is where i will be. Speakers that sound good under these conditions are of interest.
. A small 2 way it is ,,,,, thanks all. I really really appreciate the helping hands. I put an offer on the Dynaudio 160's .... have not heard of course ,, dam bush living ..

S,,, To use the 300's i can Run 'pre out' rca's to speakers to utilize their built in amps ?? Correct ?? I have a pair of Cardas rca-balanced adaptors , these will not affect sound at all i'm wondering ? My last speakers were ProAc D38's ,,power hungry and sounded pretty good with volume.
