With a "budget" like that, you could get ~12 pairs:
Well then, that's going to cost you:@Dom Di Stroia - Hi, it would be a problem getting them in EU
@KidHorn - That's what i'am thinking about, 2 towers for music pleasure w/o sub..
What i have now is Pioneer VSX-923K > Yamaha 2 x NS-555 + NS-C444 + 2 x NS-333 + NS-SW300 But i feel that neither VSX neither NS-555 is very good in music.
Thank you for response, you are right in every aspect about what i seek.. NS-555 states only frequency 35Hz..35kHz responce, but without dB it can mean anything.. And i don't "feel" them..Myself, and this is just my preference, give how expensive good Subs are, I would rather divert that money into better quality Front speakers, though too each his own.
Also remember that the OP does have a Sub - Yamaha NS-SW300 ($549) -
And he also has a AV Receiver, so for movies he is set. However, for music, I think either most or a significant number of people play music with Front only. Though again, we are getting down to preferences.
His current speakers are floorstanding (Yamaha NS-555) with -6db response of 30hz, I think he is looking for something similar to replace them with. NS-555 = 2x6.5" bass, 4" Mid, 1" Tweeter.
The Budget in US Dollar is about US$540/pr up to US$2200/pr. But remember the available choices and prices are different in Europe.
Have you considered listening to music in 2.1? At least give it a try. I'm assuming that is an option on you AV Receiver....
About preference, i am not a basshead, but i still miss that low end impact frequently. Preference is Rock, Trance, House (not the deep one) Rock mostly...
