Bookshelf speakers and record player for Marantz 2245 receiver?


I'm getting a marantz 2245 and looking for recommendations for speakers and a record player to go with it.

I live in Brooklyn and the aptmt isn't huge, so thinking bookshelf speakers, perhaps new.

Thoughts or recommendations?

Thank you!

Had the 2245 for a number of years and had great success with the Omega Super 3i monitors.  The Super 3i's are single driver speakers and the combination was excellent, especially with vocals.

Here is link for the Omegas ...

Had the unit back in college, mated up to JBL L100's
A great match sonically for my dorm and apartment digs (for a receiver and speakers of its bygone era )

What is your budget for the new speakers? Are you looking brand new,or used? Will you be putting these on a shelf,or will they need stands? 

     Sorry for all the questions,but they may help in making recommendations. 
Staying with the vintage, maybe Dynaco A25 speakers and a Dual 1229Q turntable.  Both easily available
Thanks everyone.  I'm looking to spend no more than around $500 for the speakers.  Speakers can be new or used.  Probably gonna get a new turntable.

For the speakers they'd be on a table, probably dresser.  Close to the wall but can make sure there's enough distance.
(1) I would suggest that you actually test-drive the Marantz with a list of contenders and the all-too-many pretenders. I had the DYNACO A25s with the MARANTZ before I upgraded to the JBL L100’s. Their performance (or lack thereof ) was the driving reason for the change.
And the degree of audio performance improvement was epic .... The DYNACOs were comparative crap

(2) having said that, today’s bookshelves with their vastly improved designs, superior parts components, and now properly designed cross-overs unavailable back then, will generally smoke all of the "vintage" kit performance wise ... It's Not even close. ... Even today's budget kit would be my first choice over "vintage". The old stuff will also need surround replacement, cap replacements, generally have scraped cabinet finishes to boot ....

As has been said repeatedly to date, "vintage" in audio is not "vintage" in wines. In audio, it just means "old technology " and these are limited performance kit that are also failing units as they age.
i can understand a subjective yen for nostalgia kit reminiscent of one's youth .... Fine .... Enjoy .... But if it's maxing out performance, look elsewhere.
Suggestion for bookshelves that Excel and are designed to work well placed close to the wall.

REGA RS1’s / R1s

http://www.stereotimes.com/speak121305.shtml

".... The Rega R1 becomes my new budget reference speaker. In addition of its ability to get the fundamentals of music right, it adds clarity and resolution, and an ability to lay out a vivid and coherent 3-dimensional stereo image. In small room applications, what more could you want?

Immediate impressions are a clear and transparent portrayal with very high detail retrieval, fast and controlled transient response, and superb musical timing, both in articulating rhythms and tempi, and in placing instruments within the temporal flow and context of the performance. The RR125 is an outstanding mid/bass driver, sonically and musically right in line with the midrange performance of Rega’s amplifiers and phono cartridges. Get the midrange right and everything else will fall into place. Get it wrong, and all the king’s horses…

Unlike many inexpensive speakers, the R1 is a very high-resolution device. It is not “dumbed-down” to flatter less able partners or mediocre recordings, nor does it partake of the old British stereotype of too stiff an upper lip reticence. It handles nuance and exuberance equally well. It is capable of revealing differences in electronics and sources that less capable and opaque designs simply cannot resolve. ..."

highly recommended .
I'm not going to recommend a speaker,however,because of your placement,you need to only look at something with a sealed box,or front porting. Rear porting will not sound optimal with your placement.
I would give a listen to the new ELAC B5 and B6 speakers, and look for an old AR turntable.
ML Lx-16 or Motion 15 great value and sound. 
Have a MARANTZ 2220B paired with ADS L470's and sounds good to me.If you consider used ADS speakers work well with the MARANTZ receivers .
I think the Rega R1 suggested by akg is one good fit given your amp and room constraints. Sensitivity of 90dB, nominal 8ohm impedance, and need not require placement far from back wall.  Maybe you could find a used pair, thus saving money for the TT. 

On the TT quest, what is your budget for it? 
Elac the $500.00 ones sounded great at the price was at a demo in my stereo club by the designer.

ebm, given your affinity for Magicos, I consider that high praise indeed. It's even a 3-way with a coaxial mid/tweet in a very compact (7.87"x12.75"x10.75") enclosure.

Given that the R1 is out of production I think the only ones available are used. The current version is the RX1 at $1295/pair.

Still, the R1s (if you can find them) should be a good match. I like the way Rega speakers sound.
For the turntable, unless you stumble onto a killer deal on one of the early '80s upscale Kenwoods, JVCs, Denons, etc., you might be better off with a brand new Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC. A lot of good sound for $399.
