I'm having bad luck trying to find speakers that gave me the wow factor of my old man's Philips MFB RH 541's. Those things seemed to produce sound effortlessly and sounded great with vinyl and cds and all types of music

I've recently had dynaudio bm5a mkii's on my desktop for my pc and now I'm using those Andrew Jones Pioneer towers

I checked out TAVES and nothing wowed me either, maybe my ears suck, not sure

I'm not using a dac though so I just ordered a udac3

I want to get KEF LS50s and probably will soon but doubt my vintage Luxman 30watt receiver will drive them so I'm holding out a bit for an Anthem225

I think those Philips are really my only point of reference for what sounds good to me

I can not speak for the Phillips - however, if you had the money and some power,
I would seriously look at the Boston E60 speaskers - and they are seriously good.

Hi.

 

I might be interested in buying them. 

Where are you based and would you be willing to ship them to Poland?

 

Regards,

Michal

The shipping from the States to Poland will be astronomical - maybe in the thousands.

That's why I'm asking where he's based. Maybe he lives in Europe.
