I could use some help.
I'm looking for a pair of bookshelf speakers for a home office setup. The room is 12'X11' with 8' ceilings.
I'm planning on using a vintage ReVox A-78 integrated amplifier (out being restored now) that my Dad has owned since the early 1970's for power with a Mac mini front end...possibly running into something like the Schiit Bitfrost. I listen to al kinds of music, but not often to heavy rock. I would like the speakers to be neutral to warm sounding and sound amazing at lower volume levels. This is not a setup that I will often enjoy from the ideal stereo imaging position. However, I'd like to be able to listen for extended periods of time without feeling like I want to turn it off or that I need to keep turning it up to hear the details and enjoy the music. Budget-wise, I'd like to be at $1000 or less, but would go up to about $1500 for the right setup.
I was thinking about the Totem Rainmakers, but I'm worked the ReVox may not power then sufficiently as I've read they are very power hungry. I've also read they tend to come alive at higher volume levels.
I don't have room for floor standers. The speakers will need to sit on a credenza-like piece of furniture.
Hoping you guys have some good options that I should be looking at???
