As the title stated, I am looking for a pair of speakers for my master bedroom. About 20x30 and has about 10 foot ceilings. Looking to setup 2 channel system utilizing a Rotel RA-1520 with Wadia 170iTransport. Also have a Marantz CD6003 in use. Any suggestions would greatly be appreciated? Max I would like to spend is $1200. Last question, do I need floorstanding speakers for a room this size as I was not looking to add sub?
I recently updated my bedroom system using a vintage pair of Boston Acoustics A40's. To solve the bass problem, the a40 has none, I tried a Yamaha YST 150 watt sub. Very pleased, especially since it goes into the desk. Worth a try with any of the speakers mentioned.
Thanks for the responses. I had a listen to the Era D5's and I really enjoyed them. Having compared them to Harbeth was not a good idea. I also listened to PSB Platinum M2's and was not that impressed(Sorry!) I am use to listening to my Proac D2 Reponse in the living area of the house and love the sound. Just don't want to pay the price for a master bedroom. Thank you for the PSB T6 advice, I read a good review in Stereophile.
You need to check out Tekton, He is doing amazing stuff with speakers that are way in budget. He is a Builder out of Utah. I bought a pair for my bed room and they are so good that I moved them to my living room. I have sold my Revel F12 and replaced them with his book shelf and Sub. I had 5 different speakers brought to my home from Esoteric, Harbeth, Nola, PSB and Moniter Audio. The Tekton Blew them out the water and cost less, Made in our backyard by hand. I know we all like to read what the Mags have to say but there is a big world out there with tons of great audio gear.
Caesarpalace interesting speakers with pricing that is tough to beat;you mentioned 5 speakers you once owned and these perform better;especially when I see the harbeth and nola listed these maybe worth checking out;thanks for the info.
How about a used pair of B&W 805s? That would be right about the top of your budget, and B&W often pairs them with Rotel. I haven't heard them with Rotel, but I do play an iDecco through another amp (Luxman L-507) to mine, and the iDecco sounds somewhat like the Wadia transport, IMHO. My cousin swears by his own B&W/Rotel combo.
