I'm looking for recs on a pair of front speakers for $1,000 or less.
I bought a Denon PMA-520 integrated amp and a pair of Boston Acoustics A70 bookshelf speakers in 1987, when I was 16 years old. After 20 years, they are finally giving out.
I loved my old system, and since nothing I've ever bought has lasted for 20 years, I bought the best Denon receiver I could afford on my small budget: the AVR-887 receiver.
Because of my living situation (cramped NYC apartment), I can't use a subwoofer. I listen to music/movies about 50/50. The room is 16x11 with 9 foot ceilings.
I was thinking about going with the Boston Acoustics VR Reference bookshelf speakers, but I want to listen to what else is out there.
I love the clear midrange and tight, punchy bass of my old BA speakers, and was wondering if folks had any suggestions of comparable speakers to listen to.
Thanks very much,
