I have been wanting to upgrade my living room speakers from desktop speakers to something better. I have been reading up on the under $1k bookshelf speakers and have found a few options. What do you guys think of my choices below? It has be a bookshelf unfortunately due to its higher wife acceptance factor. The speakers will be in a medium size room 2500 cubic ft. where half of one wall opens into another medium size room.
My choices in order of preference are:
1. The Clue - It can placed within 2 inches of the back wall.
2. Dynaudio speakers (Dynaudio BM 6A MKII) - nearfield so not sure if it work.
3. Paradigm Studio 20
My amp is an old Marantz 5.1 reciever 100 watts/channel so should be adequate. Which ones do you guys think is best? any other recommendations? Budget is $1k
Thanks guys, I'll be doing more reading up on your suggestions. I have gone to BB a few times to audition their speakers, not sure if it is their setup but wasn't too impressed with their speakers, B&W and Energy. Not even close to my mid price headphones, Hifiman HE500 or my previously owned Audeze LCD-2. Not sure if it was their setup but it didn't have the clarity I was looking for, lots of mushy sounding bass with ok clarity across the spectrum.
