Advice on speakers

Recommended Posts

Just after some help on ideas for speakers.

Mainly play vinyl, loooking for better sounding speakers. Any advice would be appreciated Current system 

Sansui AU 999 amp.

Technics 1200 turntable

Cambridge audio DVD99 as cd player

Boston CR9's getting a little old

Also running a dacmagic from computer.

 

I also picked up a Marantz LS-17A from a junk shop that needs repair busted woofer, sounds awesome even broken but only have one. Wish i had a pair.

Looking at spending around $2000

I live in Katherine NT, so it'll be a bit hard to audition a set anywhere

If you're looking for new, I think the SVS speakers are a steal for their value. Either the prime floorstanders if you want full sized speakers or the prime bookshelf paired with the SB1000 subwoofer if bookshelf suits your environment better. They're a little over 2k. Peter usually discounts a bit off the RRP:

Legend Kama - excellent speakers, were at HiFi show and sounded fantastic.

Am biased, have new Kantu 9's.

Ring Rod Crawford, be happy to give you further advice.

My 2c

Adelaide audio shop has a list of suitable speakers like B&W, Focal, Monitor Audio.

 

Pick one you like, check web reviews, ask here about specific models

Hi there,

 

Legend Acoustics: http://www.legendspeakers.com.au/

I just bought a pair of Kurre 9 and auditioned the Kantu (floorstanders) and the larger Tikande at Rod Crawford's home.  This beats English, French and Danish stuff hands down.  You can get the Kurre for about 2K; they are standmount but deliver plenty. The money goes into building the speakers: drivers, crossovers, cabinets. I cannot say enough good things.

 

Good luck

Definitely look into Adelaide Ascension Speakers. The Summoners are great floor standers.  Just got my second pair. Upgraded from a smaller set. They sound incredible.

What is your room size and layout? Where can the speakers be placed? Do you like or dislike the Boston speakers, and what are you looking for in the replacements?

 

I can't google an A9 speaker. Is your current speaker the A90 micro size speaker?
