Does anyone know where to find specs for a pair of bookshelf/small stand Monitor Audio Silver 3is? I purchased them in the late 80s/early 90s and several moves later have lost the technical info. I still like their sound, which is good since I have very low funds to replace them, and they are beautiful wood. Monitor Audio website does not have anything at all. I've Emailed them but no response so far.
I admit that I am not a serious audiophile so feel free to share not-super-technical advice. I have been running my system from an 80s-era Adcom preamp/receiver combo. Not a top end one, but pretty decent. I was considering buying an inexpensive digital system or at least a receiver(stereo not home theater), but really don't like the stuff I hear at Best Buy, etc. (either sound tinny or so heavy on bass that everything else is lost or just can't hear over store noise) and the stereo people there say they can't match the quality of my current setup. They don't have anything set up for listening so I can't confirm.
There don't seem to be any true home audio stores left in Birmingham, AL so I am stymied. Looking for info so I can start upgrading bits and pieces at a time. I looked through several audiophile magazines but they are focusing on a far different price bracket and knowledge level than I can afford right now.
Guessing the first thing to upgrade is receiver/amp so can stream from computer (I have everything in Apple Lossless) but don't know what power I need to match on speakers.
I listen to everything from classical to Broadway to rock to folk to country - basically everything but hiphop/rap. I do not need really loud, but just good, clean 2 channel sound. Not interested in full home theater setup.
Or if by chance there is a digital setup that could match this quality (and there may be tons of them for all I know), for less than $800, any suggestions would be appreciated.
I posted this in another forum, but since I'm new to this, thought I might get more results from this forum. Any help would be gratefully received.
