High sensitivity speakers

Hi

I'd welcome suggestions for high sensitivity speakers that would work well with fairly low powered, if not quite flea-powered, tube amplifiers.  Recommendations in the less-than-$2000 category would be especially useful.

Regards,

S

high sensitivity speakers

gogle "high end with arthur salvitore".  the web site is pretty involved, but low power is his thing and he provides a very complete list of high sensitivity speakers.

good luck

Vapor Audio's Arcus

I don't think it is advertised on their website yet but the Arcus is one of the more refined and best imaging High Efficiecy speaker I have heard.  It will reach 100+ DB off of said squeeker amp.  Call Ryan and he can tell you all about it, they are a mind boggling value for money.  Personally I am a fan of his Cirrus, but they aren't quite as high efficiency.

Thanks

Many thanks to you all for responding.  It looks like there is a range of choices out there, although finding a way to audition any of them is going to be a problem.  I'd be particularly interesting in any impressions folks have of these, especially of Decware and Omega, which seem to be in my price range.

Regards
