Bookself speaker for Luxman 590 axII


Hi guys I recently bought a Luxman 590 ax II that I use with reference Ensemble speakers. I find it really wonderful I wanted from you advice for bookself speakers to adapt. I also wanted to know if anyone tried to use Luxman as the final amplifier by combining a pre-seen that has this possibility.
Thanks and good music!

Mizioa, congrats on the Luxman very nice amp, is your question would a more modern set of bookshelf or monitor speakers be better?

The Ensemble monitors were fantastic loudspeakers and would only suffer in the comparison to a modern loudspeaker in terms of treble resolution, the foam core midrange driver was very special so it depends on what you are trying to do.

Also do you really need a monitor or could you go to a floor stander?

Can you please explain what this means?

The Luxman he is referring to has pre out and also PRE IN to use it as an amp only.  I think he means has anyone used it as an amp with a different pre.
