Check out B&W 684 S2.Looking for some bookshelf or floor speakers around the $1K mark (give or take). This will strictly be for a 2-channel stereo setup. Amp will be, for now, a Yamaha a-s701.
I have a couple in mind, but I wanted to see any other suggestions as I'm probably missing a few good considerations. Unfortunately, there's not a place locally to demo everything that I want to, so I may order a few sets and pic the winner.
What I like:
- detail, good bass response, warm-ish (without being overly warm or muddy)
What I don't like:
- shrill/bright, too bold of a mid/high range, etc.
- A little bit of everything
- won't be played too loud (aka I don't really need party speakers).
Bookshelf or floorstander doesn't matter as I can go either way. May not run a sub if the bass is good enough. If it helps, I'm looking to upgrade from a set of Elac B6's in this location (which I do like, but I know there is better).
