Budget - 1.5K-ish and under. I’m flexible, but prefer to be closer to 1K than 2K for the pair.
What I am looking at – Tekton Lore with the upgrades and beryllium driver and the Wharfdale EVO4.3…prefer floor standers, but definitely open to bookshelves…prefer no sub and find floor standers a little better for a 2.1 kind of set up. Open to anything though.
(Don’t mention Magnepans…listen, I’d love’em…I can’t give’em the room to breath they need right now)
Amp? – Looking to re-build from the front end to the backend, so I’ll worry about a new amp later, but if you’re going to pitch some good Speakers, maybe throw in a nice amp, too. Currently, I’ve got an Emotiva A500 and I do like it, but I’m not married to it.
Music I listen to – Jazz, Singer-Songwriter, Americana/Folk/Country, Rock/Classic Rock, a little hip hop/r&b…I don’t want to say everything, but I’ve got a wide range of music I listen to.
Room size…fairly large. Want something a little versatile…music forward, but I watch movies and TV on this set up, too.
