i have been saving up for quite a while, looking for a pair of floor speakers paired with a great amp. i want to stream from tidal, but also have the option to connect my turntable, tape deck, and cd player.
m0n has been helping me along the way and suggested the klipsch rp-8000f.
my budget for speakers is around $1,000 (pair) and my amp budget is around $500.
i just want to be sure i know all my options before pulling the trigger. i am able to find the klipsh speakers used for much cheaper, which certainly is important to me. end game?
i have a few amps so i do not need one asap. i don’t mind going vintage for the amps or speakers, any other recommendations to help me become a more informed buyer?
mainly listen to:
60s,70s,80s,90s rock, blues, psychedelic rock, metal also some jazz and classical
some bands as well: santana, can, primus, black label soc. smash pumpkins, hendrix, bad company, zeppelin, sublime, rage, soad, randy weston, mountain, coltrane, stevie ray vaughan, early Cure, Haig Yazdjian, offspring, audioslave, king crimson, cream, crosby stills, the doors, rhcp, badlands, d’angelo, radiohead, pearl jam, alice n chains, soundgarden, p floyd, viza, sabbath, dire straits, the police, queen, rush, deep purple, bob marley, beatles, more hendrix, sleep, korn
i love sound stage and hearing new sounds i never heard in songs before. i love immersion and feeling like wow im hearing this shit for the first time. i don’t really ROCK OUT to music, i never blast volume unless i have people over or listening to a soad record lmao. i have no problem using a sub.
