Attention Sam Tellig and Robert Reina

I've been an avid reader for a while. I seemed to be aligned in my tastes somewhere in between Sam and Robert. Therefore, could either of you provide advice on speakers to complement my Quad 99-CDP2/Quad 909 system in a relatively small 12x13 listening space? Budget is up to $4k. I currently have Triangle Celius Esw's connected to the Quad combo, but in a much larger space.

Thanks

PMB

You might try keeping your Triangle Celius speakers to see how things work out. A new Triangle Esprit series is being introduced -- one of the smaller models might work out well. If your interests tend to jazz and classical -- anything but rock -- I would suggest the Harbeth Compact 7 ES3.

Re: Attention Sam Tellig and Robert Reina

Sam, thanks for the response. I bought my Triangle's based on your review and haven't been disappointed.

My tastes are expanding into jazz (recently), but I primarily listen to electronica, female vocalists, some folk, and classical.

I have been tempted to audition some Harbeth's but I was worried that they wouldn't be the best match for my electronics and listening preferences.

Any thoughts for a match with the Quad electronics that also has the bass extension, dynamics, and resolution to swing from Django Reinhart to Miles Davis to Patty Griffin to Kraftwerk? I know that's asking a lot.

Thanks
