  • Questions about bookshelf speakers

    If I may inquire about bookshelf speakers to those who are experienced buyer's. Well I've decided to upgrade my entire system, but what I'm mostly interested now are the bookshelf speakers.
    Like many of us do, I read product information and reviews. If anyone could give me advice on a set of speakers 500.00 or less, I will appreciate all advice in advance. (confused )

    The new Elac line are all the rage these days.

        Are you looking specifically at commercial units or considering diy?

          In this case commercial units. I built the statement monitors and will probably sell the speakers and crossovers. I
          don't have the time or the correct tools for diy at this time.

            If you can find a pair of Behringer B2031P I'd go for those as well. Unfortunately, they don't make the passive model anymore, only the active monitor B2031A, which may also be a good buy if your receiver has L/R pre-outs.

                The JBL LSR305s are a great value for what they do. The deep bass is limited, but with a sub they'd make an impressive system.

                  I have a pair of the B6 speakers. Very full range sounding. They also are capable of good soundstage. Granted, I have them in a smaller room, and they might not perform as well in a large room, the hype is real.

                  They sound proper and balanced. The tweeter might sound slightly soft and laid back, but they are nicer than the Andrew Jones Pioneer speakers. I have both, and the ELACs are a upgrade. As long as they go loud enough without distortion and are wide enough range for required music for desired playback, I feel they are reaching the level of, good enough.

                    Generic, you chose an excellent "benchmark" to compare to. Andrew Jones is an excellent designer, but he has his "sound" with some bite to the upper mids and when pushed near their limits, you can hear it plainly. If you can hear the Elac's as a definite upgrade, that's a very high value speaker indeed.

                      Buy the Continuums in the want ads. $450 + shipping. Hard to beat and very attractive.

                            Paradigm Shift A2s, no amplifier needed, Run the speakers directly from an Oppo player .....minimal maximum.
