Does anyone out there have advice for a newby to the vinyl school trying to find that sound I had in the early eighties from a Luxman system with Yamaha NS690 III speakers. They are monitors and I still have them although one of the mid range and possibly a tweeter has been blown. I have thought about having them repaired (as I can get the parts), but I am considering if there is something out there comparable. I have a pair of ELAC 2.0 5.2 bookshelf speakers and they are OK. I have been pretty happy with them but I miss the clarity I recall from the Yamaha's. I have tested the ELAC's on a few of my 'test' tracks like Elton John's Song for Guy and Fleetwood Mac's Landslide and they sound nothing like the clarity of the Yamaha's. Is it the fact that the Yamaha's are considered monitors? They are as sharp as a tack which may not suit a lot of people but I do love the clarity which I have been unable to get from the ELAC's even through an Ortofon Quintet Blue on my MMF7.1 turntable. And what about the 2 way / 3 way difference in modern speakers - does that mean less clarity or is it just a tech advancement that means we get more from mid range now. So confused atm.

This M2 power amp has served me well for a number of years and never missed a beat, cosmetically it is pretty neat considering its age (see pictures), all lights working and the green LED VU meter is a treat!
I've had the speakers terminal upgraded and the new ones are pretty chunky and work well with banana or spade terminals.
I've been in two minds about selling it, but it is finally time for some one else to enjoy it!
