85 solution for Monitor speakers
I am trying to sort out all my choices for a reasonable sized speaker with reasonably good accoustics for a reasonable price as I go through my periodic upgrade of equipment. My other relavant equipment is a Myryad T4 integrated amp, and a yamaha CDC765 cd player (to be upgraded to the CAL CL-10 shortly). My current speakers are older - Mirage 490's - and I was considering the Linn Tukans, the Spendors, Silverlines, etc. I am looking for accuracy but not analytical; balanced, not boomy. My listening is varied - jazz (Dee Dee Bridgewater, Vanessa Rubin, JJ Johnson, Taylor, Sinatra, Hawkins, Ellington, etc), classical (mostly romantic era stuff - Vivaldi, Chopin, etc, plus operas - Mozart, Burhana, Vivaldi etc), modern/pop (anita baker, james taylor, greenday, OMD, Steely Dan, Rush, Floyd - to give you an idea of range).
Price wise, I am a believer in diminishing return - I would rather pay $600 for a 85% of perfection than $3000 for 95% of perfection.
So, if you have advice for me as to which speakers fit this profile, I would love to hear from you.
