Best Bang For Your Buck Bookshelf Speakers

Hi. I'm looking for a recommendation for a pair of bookshelf speakers that's a good value. I'm getting back into home audio and would like to get a pair of bookshelf speakers & a reciever for somewhere in the neighborhood of $1,000-$1,500 total. It's going to be used pretty much exclusively for listening to music. What speaker(s) would you recommend looking at?

If not planning on adding a subwoofer, this would be a good bet:

If sure you'll be sticking to 2 channel instead of going multichannel later, I'd consider this:

Zorba's suggestions are great. So many options. I also like the Marantz PM7005 or Yamaha A-S701 and the Wharfedale Reva 2 (all are on sale below).

His opinions here for budget bookshelf speakers are spot on, even though I don't have any of them but the Daytons. I know the Elacs are very well respected. In my office, I use HSU bookshelf speakers, which are not expensive at all (relatively)


Another good one, although I did not finish it.

It's got a USB A input, so you could probably wire that to a smartphone or tablet for streaming.

If you want wireless/bluetooth there's also this NAD, though it's not quite as beefy:

For speakers:
http://www.ascendacoustics.com/pages...SRM1/srm1.html
or
https://www.revelspeakers.com/produc...ck-USA-Current

Combined with http://www.rythmikaudio.com/L12.html

For drastically superior sound quality to any pair of speakers around the above total cost.

Then whatever amp or AVR you want to use that has the features you want.

Download REW and grab a Umik-1 mic if you are after good sound quality.

This is another option and would do all you need, built in amps and you can have a streamer also.

ELAC Debut B6.2 and a Denon 3500 or Marantz 5013 from Accessories 4 less with money left over. Also look at the Canton Chrono 512 at A4L.

You did not mention a sub, so my suggestion is going to be a little different.

You should have a couple of priorities:

1. Flat and smooth frequency response on and off-axis (as much as is reasonable)
2. Good bass extension, free of peaks and dips

To that, you will need room correction for the bass frequencies. I recommend an AVR that has Audyssey XT32. If your speakers are really good, use the Audyssey app to limit correction to about 400-500 Hz. This is going to help because you don't have a sub that can find a more optimal placement for bass. Denon 3400 would be a good choice.

The above speaker suggestions are really good.

You can get a killer setup well below your budget.

For bookshelf speakers, consider the HSU HB-1 MK2. (2 for $320). If you want a little more lower growl, you can get a subwoofer of your choosing. A good one is less than $400, such as the entry-level HSU.

Then, that gives you around $300-800 for a receiver. No need to go over $300 as Yamaha is a good value for their price.

You can come out with a great system for $1000. I think your money is better spent (and heard) by purchasing better speakers at the expense of a more pricey receiver.

Call me an old-school troglodyte perhaps, but I really don't think room correction is all that. Maybe if one's room is incredibly BAD acoustically. But any decent speakers, with some intelligent placement decisions, with a decent power source and music source, should be fine without any electronic fiddling-around. I am very happily listening to my BMRs in Pure Direct mode, subwoofer off, while typing this.

This is true to a point. My room has some pretty bad problems, which were only solved by installing a subwoofer and reversing the phase. This had nothing to do with AVR room correction. But, overall, I am a fan of room correction but recognize it's not a magic wand or crutch.

Placement is always #1 .

Reason I think XT32 will be important here is that he isn't spec'ing the system to have a sub. Solving of bass issues will then be relegated to large amounts of absorption...which costs space and money (more than the AVR).

Even if all the budget were spent on only speakers(which wouldn't work as op needs an amp/avr), a speaker/sub combo within budget would sound better.

Not sure if anyone else has suggested these yet. MartinLogan LX16's. The older version of the Motion 15. Available new from Crutchfield at a pretty considerable discount. I have a pair that I use for surround and think they put out a lot of sound from a small package.

And similar in design and a few dollars less, the B1 from Emotiva.

A few others have mentioned the Canton offerings from AC4L, and I also mentioned them in your Receiver thread, so I'll pile on here as well. To me, the Chrono 502.2 is the absolute budget choice and the Chrono SL 536 is just amazing for the price. I've heard the SL 536 side-by-side with the more expensive Vento 836 and felt the Chrono was basically as good for ~1/3 less money... there are some tweeter tech improvements in the Vento that may have improved clarity a bit but I think most of the price difference is honestly upcharge for the curved cabinets.

I'm a big fan of large bookshelfs and think it's a shame there aren't many left in the market these days... the SL 536 is everything I'd be looking for in a 2ch speaker, even for occasional light HT use (neutral sound, low-end extension, reasonable efficiency, well-engineered, great build/fit/finish). Either of the Chronos with your integrated amp of choice would be a very solid choice right at the bottom end of your budget or well below it... but there are so many great options that it's tough to go wrong with your budget and the guidance you're receiving here.

I've recently auditioned several speakers in a broad price range: Sonus Faber, b&w, but for around €700 or less I am very very happy with my Dynaudio emit M20s.
Neutral but not boring, detail but no fatiguing treble and a tight bass. Though I play with a subwoofer (SVS) for the sub 50Hz , all driven by NAD T758v3.

For strictly two channel, this is a ridiculous deal at it's current price:

Get a few more watts and a phono amp with the upgrade:

If going for a future HT, then look at the Marantz slim line (with Pure Direct for 2-channel listening):

As to speakers ... listening sessions to narrow down the list.

Gobsmackingly good!!!

That's basically T-amp price range!

~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)
