The other loudspeaker I was considering was the PSB Alpha B1. I considered getting an NAD amplifier if I went with the PSB. I don't really enjoy too much bass in my system. I want my bass to be relevant to my Beyerdynamic DT 990/600Ω headphone. It's not boomy, just tight and controlled. I prefer a more detailed sound stage with a warm sound. I currently use this old stereo system with a PSOne SCPH-1001 as a source. http://catalog2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/images/models/sc-ak520.jpg
It is isn't as bad as some will come to think. It's three-way loudspeakers are bi-wired and have an impedance rating of 6Ω.
Yeah, that's the one I noticed. Still, I think for even that much, I wouldn't bother, as they're so old and you'd still be getting hardly any discount. Keep in mind, they were $250/pr new. Who knows though? If after you go listen to them and you fall in love with the sound, maybe they would be worth that much to you? I'm in no way judging, but if it were my money, I'd probably look elsewhere to spend that amount on speakers (maybe those PSB's!). I saw some Energy C-1 speakers advertised for the same price as the B&W's...why not check those out?
I don't listen to nice headphones - best I use is a pair of crappy in ear phones (Vsonic GR something?) at work occasionally, so I don't really have a frame of reference with the Beyerdynamics you mention. I do, however, have a couple NAD amps and love them to pieces!
