I am interested in setting up a new 2.1 system. I have read a variety of reviews but I decided it was time to go down to a local store and hear some speakers in person.
I got to hear the B&W 685s and I thought there is a pretty good speaker. IMO it does a good job with the Jazz and Classical. The sales rep did show me that they don't do that great with other types of music.
I then heard some Klipsch and some Paradigm floor standing speakers that sounded better with rock/dance type music. It now seems there is no "master of all", well not in my price bracket.
I think I'll buy the B&Ws and then look for a second set for "other" music.
My question is this what speaker would you recommend I purchase for when I want to listen to Rock, Electronic Dance music and "other" (non jazz, non classical) music?
I already have a 12" sub to assist in the lower range but I still figure floor standing speakers might be my solution.
I'm looking at something in the 600-1400 dollar range.
