First of, I'm not an audiophile by any means, I just want to come home to something that sounds great and a stereo system this time around!
I've asked here before for recommendations regarding stereo speakers and learned a lot from you guys. I unfortunately didn't manage to find anything at the time and I got into a busy time at work so I didn't get any further.
But a couple of years ago I bought a Klipsch RP 5.1 hometheater setup and I rushed into buying it as I didn't really go and listen to anything else and just took the salesman word for it. The speakers have been pretty good for movies and such, but it quickly dawned upon me how bright they were. Room treatment and the Anthem amp did help some, but it can still be kinda fatiguing.
I've learned from my mistake and I'm in the process of selling my entire setup including electronics and have starting setting up some demos for some new speakers (again), as I have some spare time a the moment.
There's currently some speakers either being sold as demo models or used. I've found Dynaudio Contour 20 (demo model for 3700USD/new 5300USD) and GoldenEar Triton 3 Plus (used 2300USD/new 3500USD) which is some great deals/options.
I actually recently just heard the GoldenEar 3's a couple of weeks ago and I was quite impressed and my ears didn't seem to bothered by them even a higher volumes, I do have a meeting with the store this week where we'll listen to some Dynaudio's, probably something in the Evoke or Focus lineup. I was quite impressed with the Dynaudio Special Forty from the last time I auditioned speakers.
The Buchardt S400's is on my list too, but I have no option to have a listen to them. Any of you that can give me some insight into how they compare to GoldenEar or Dynaudio?
I'm always open to any other speaker suggestions or electronics that go good with them!
As for electronics go I considering going with the PS Audio Stellar lineup or something from Yamaha.
Listening interests: Movies and music 50/50. Anything from Instrumental classic (especially piano), electro (e.g. Daft Punk) to some rock and metal.
