Hello All.... I just sold my b&w 683's with the intent on upgrading. I listen to a lot of blues, Jazz and live music (Dave Mathews type) very heavy instrument.
My set up is actually in my family room that is 16X20 with 10 foot ceilings. I do not have room or money for a sub so I am looking for floor standing for very wide bookshelves. The room has three walls as in the rear is the eating area and kitchen.
I am currently running the speakers with a bi-amp'ed pioneer elite sc-05. I know I know I need an amp but I would really like to spend my entire budget on great overall bang for the buck (3000-4000) speakers.
I am really just interested in true sound. I looked at martin logan's but i am concerned about the "sweet spot" that everyone talks about. If done right and well, music can be delivered all through the house if good sound. the 683's were ok but after going to a Joe Bonamassa concert last week and then buying the DVD to listen to...it was missing a lot... hence here I am.
Please be nice as I really dont know a lot... im just looking for direction. I will find and audition suggestions.
thanks so much!
