Hey there! Here is the situation...
I have a vintage Sony TA-1150 integrated amp. (~45W RMS) I'm trying to sort out what kind of speakers I should be looking at. There seem to be so many things to consider!
The room is 12x14. here is a pic.... http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k162/nickandaline/Untitled-1-1.jpg
I listen to a wide range of music. Fiest, NIN, Strung Out, Propagandhi, Nora Jones, Florence and the Machine, Kathleen Edwards, Johny Cash, the Black Keys, Cee Lo Green, etc. even some musicals like Les Miserable. I wouldn't mind exploring some Jazz too but I've never really given it a chance.
I've been thinking about some used stuff like a pair of Infinity Kappa 6($650), CELESTION DITTON DL6 ($150), I've been thinking about towers like the PSB Image T6, Monitors like the Paradigm Titans V.6, or the Quad 11L2.
I'm looking for a clean crisp slightly warm sound that sounds "right" if there is such a thing!
I can tell ya I tried a pair of Magnepan 12QR and I found them too laid back and lacking bass and punch.
Help me if you can!
