I had my Rega Apollo CDP and NAD 355BEE Amplifier for a few months, and would like to upgrade for better speakers. I am in 15 x 10 room and mainly want good vocal sound. I listen to 80/90s pop/rock songs. No classical, no jazz.
I have audition for a few speakers but hard to choose.
1. Focus Audio FC7 - Canadian made speakers, was impressed with the clarity sound except it is a little thin.
2. Rega R5 (not the new RS5) - ugly look, but impressive sound especially vocal. Too bad that Rega web site never provide me with details (e.g. frequency response) cannot compare.
3. Focal JMlab Chorus 836V - the most expensive of all. Like the richness of the sound, comes in different layers. Feels that the vocal is on top.
One concern is that my NAD355BEE integrated Amp only offer 80W x 2 Continuous Power into 8 ohms.
I am purely using this set of speakers for music. Please give some opinions. Thanks!
