I'm in the process of building a small-budget bedroom stereo system and was wondering what bookshelf speakers to use. Space is somewhat limited, with the empty room being 10' by 10' and practical floor area being 94 square feet (All of this drops significantly with the addition of a bed, desk, and chairs). My budget for a pair of speakers is around $200-350. I was thinking of perhaps the...
Wharfedale Diamond 9.1
Klipsch RB-41 II
Does anyone have any strong feelings for any of these models? If anyone has other suggestions within this price range, new or used, please feel free to share as well (as well as your reasoning please!)
I listen mainly to classic rock, vocal, symphonic/classical, and electronic music. Soundstage/imaging, and texture/detail are particularly important to me.
I'll be running this through a Little Dot MkIII tube preamplifier to an Eico HF-81 tube amplifier that produces about 14W per channel.
Thanks for all your help!
