Getting back into vinyl .I have a vintage luxman M 4000 power amp class a 180w power and a luxman c1010 pre amp circa 1975 . I'm in need of new speakers any recommendations on a pair of floorstanding loudspeakers that won't break the bank.thanks in advance.
Everyone has a different idea of whats will break the bank, and you are not giving any clues where you are on that.
I have the Vandersteen Treo speakers, and they are sublime; the cost is $6000, and they are a bargain at that price IMO.
If that breaks your bank, then I would suggest the PSB Image T6 speakers, which I had for two years and are very very good.
They are only $1300 per pair, and both Stereophile and the Absolute sound rate them as the best in that price class. I have heard that since PSB is based in Canada, dealers there can be persuaded to discount them somewhat.
If that is still too pricy, the Wharfedale Diamond 10.4 speakers are $800 per pair, and pretty good stuff.
The sound quality of anything for less than $800 is really not that good IMO.
