This is my speaker, paired with NAD C 326BEE. The sound is great and easy to listen too.

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.

My setup is:

Rotel RA-150

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.

on my list of potential candidates are:

B&W 685 (or even CM-5 if they go on sale) - heard the 685 which sounded amazing but was not ready to commit.

Wharfedale Diamond series - great reviews but have not listened to them.

KEF Q series (I did hear these in a loud environment and did like them).

PSB Alpha B1 - recommended by this website/magazine ;)


Any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated.
