Hi! I’m just a new user here seeking for some advice on speakers. I’m an owner of a chord Mojo + Sennheiser HD600 and I love them, but recently I’ve been interested to move into the speaker world.
I bought some Q Acoustics 3020 a couple years ago, with a super cheap SMSL SA-50 amp, and I’ve been quite dissapointed with them. They don’t sound clear to me, I don’t really enjoy them, they kinda bother me, don’t sound natural at all. I’ve tried them at a couple different rooms and different places and I just don’t like them (maybe it’s just the amp?).
The thing is a couple months ago I found a pair of Fisher xp6b from my grandfather with a kenwood A-4002A amp from 50 years ago and holy sh*t I discovered why people love speakers instead of headphones. There’s a life coming out of them, the music feels full, not just sounds full, and their tone is just so natural they brought me to tears listening to Norah Jones’ voice. They are so old that obviusly they are not snappy, they don’t have good instrument separation with busy songs etc, but I really enjoy them, they provide me what my HD600 don’t, life and excitement.
So… now I want something for my desk that can kinda bring me this life and emotion, and maybe a little more detail and separation, and I guess my Q Acoustics 3020 aren’t gonna do it (I have the fisher’s at another house and I’m repairing the Kenwood amp that suddenly started crackling). So… I’m looking for a pair of speakers to stand on quite a large desk, but close to the wall, and I’ve been looking at some of the best reviewed speakers at under 300$ after hearing some crazy good Zeos Reviews on cheap stuff:
- Sony SS-CS5
- Jamo S803
- Micca RB42 (I’m from Europe so I guess hard to get)
- Kef 100 or 150? (quite a lot more expensive).
And I’m gonna buy the SMSL SA300 amp I guess! I kinda liked that white setup Zeos had in its review with the white Jamo, and having the front firing “bass hole” they are a really good option for me I guess?
I’m open to new suggestions too, thanks mates! Looking forward to be part of this forum.
