Beware of recommendations for inexpensive/vintage speakers that always seem to be suggested whenever rock is mentioned. Keep in mind that rock is typically NOT well recorded and as such gear selection and quality is especially important as inferior equipment ENHANCES the brightness, harshness of much recrded rock. Do yourself a favor and burn a disc of 5-10 favorite tracks, seek out some high end shops in your area and listen to YOUR music. You will like some gear and dislike others but etablish a baseline, it won't take long and it is a fun thing to do. Listen to something well beyond your pricerange so you will know how that gear presents your favorite music and work backwards in price until you find a presentation that YOU like. Most shops only handle a few brands so you won't be overwhelmed at all and bring a note book so you can rank what you like. Soon you will be rocking and enjoying your music collection like never before. P.S. I listen to rock/metal and I run it through a very high end system which I enjoy very, very much, best of luck.
Can't say they are the best but I use Mackie 624MkII powered studio monitors in my office and listen to a lot of rock music.
I've had them in a much larger room with more room to breathe and did not feel a sub was completely necessary (but would have been alot of fun).
Not audiophile high-end, but FUN.
Thanks for the responses guys. I really appreciate them.
I have decided on purchasing an Outlaw Audio RR2150 Receiver. If this makes a difference, is there any speakers that particularly match up very well with this receiver, if anyone has the particular experience? I have the opportunity to purchase a pair of B&W 704's as well but am not sure if they are the right fit.
