It's highly recommended to do exactly that, especially if you're completely new to this hobby and have no idea what sound signature you like.Quick question. I am in the market to purchase new speakers (bookshelf’s). Is there anything wrong with ordering two or three pairs of speakers at the same time to audition them in the room and then returning the ones that did not sound great ? Given that the return policy allows for it (prime or some other site, store). What are everyone’s thought on this ?
In which case, I'd recommend trying 3 speakers that offer contrasting sound signatures: perhaps a "warm" speaker, a "neutral" speaker, and a somewhat "bright" or "forward" speaker. Although if your usage is more HT/TV than music, you can skip the "warm" speaker unless you have a known sensitivity to strong treble and/or have a highly reflective room.
