I am in the market for speakers for my Rotel RA-1520 (2*60W) integrated amp.
These will be located in my office and not a large room and will be sitting on either side of my office desk so bookshelf is preferred. I listen to a variety of new/old rock, jazz, plus some top 40 stuff (easy on the brain). I am currently using Boston Accoustics T-1030 which I bought in the mid 90's and had recently refoamed. But these speakers are just borrowed from my home theatre setup until I find permanent speakers.
My setup is:
Cambridge Dacmagic Plus
iTunes / Channel D Pure player.
As I am not really near an urban centre, I am limited to what I can listen to in person. MY local hifi dealer sells Totem,B&W, and very high stuff.
on my list of potential candidates are:
B&W 685 - I heard the 685 which sounded amazing but was not ready to commit ($800 CAD).
Wharfedale Diamond series - great reviews but have not listened to them.
KEF Q series - I did hear these but only in a loud environment but was impressed by the highs.
PSB Alpha B1 - recommended by this website/magazine ;)
Any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated.
