Hello stereophile members,
I recently purchased a Marantz PM6004 Integrated Amp and a Pro-ject Debut Carbon Turntable to go along with a pair of KEF Q100 Bookshelf speakers. This is my first time getting into analog and when comparing to my modest computer-based audio setup (MacBook Pro w/ Audirvana, Audioengine D1 DAC), I prefer the computer-based setup more. There's too much background noise with the Pro-ject and the resolution isn't as good as the digital setup. So I'm looking to maybe return the turntable and invest in a better DAC. Also, The KEF Q100s sound really good, but they do not have enough bass for my liking. So I'm turning to floorstanders because I don't want to buy a sub. I would like to get some recommendations for entry-level floorstanding speakers under $1000. I currently have my eyes on the KEF C7 and the Polk Audio TSi500. I was also recommended some Klipsch RF-52 IIs. I have not listened to any of these speakers so if anyone has experience with these speakers, I would like to hear your feedback. Thanks for helping out a fellow newbie!
