Hello all. I'm hoping to get some opinions. First some background. I'm 35 and audio has always been a big hobby of mine, despite being put on the back burner many, MANY times. I worked in the car audio industry a few years back and had a car system that would rival many true home audiophile systems, consisting of Eclipse, JL Audio, Phoenix Gold, Soundstream, MB Quart, Boston, etc. This was many years ago though, when only a small handful of people had heard of most of these companies. When they were very respectable companies offering very high quality products before going "mainstream" and being sold in the big "blue and yellow" store.
Well, it's been many years since I've owned a brand new pair of speakers, due to divorce, lack of employment opportunities, bills, moving, etc. It's time for some new ones, but I'm on a very limited budget these days (aren't we all?). But after doing my homework for quite a few days, I've narrowed my choices down and would like some opinions.
My absolute budget is $300 for a pair. They will be 90% music, 10% movies. I prefer a "warmer" sound over "bright", smooth with some decent dynamic range, if that helps any. So here's my choices. any, and all, opinions are welcome.
Infinity P362 / 363 (whichever is cheaper at time of purchase)
BIC Venturi DV64
Polk Monitor 60
There's two other possible candidates, if I can get them on sale a little cheaper -
Polk Monitor 70
Premier Acoustic PA-6F
But if I can't find those two cheaper....
Please let me add that bookshelfs and a sub are not optional.
