Looking for Speaker Thoughts
I am in the market for a new set of speakers for my desktop/nearfield system. I have limited ability to audition anything. Current setup is a pair of KEF R100's on stands behind my desk approximately 5.5 feet from my listening spot. Speakers are three feet from any room boundary. Currently being driven by a Schiit Vidar amp and are supplemented by a small SVS sub.
The R100's sound decent at lower volumes but tend to fall apart at higher listening levels IMO. I also find the tweeter to be harsh on some material.
Looking in the $1,000 to $2,000 range and am currently considering the following:
Dynaudio Evoke 10
Dynaudio Evoke 20
Buchardt Audio S300
Ascend Acoustics Sierra 2EX
Revel Performa3 M105
Revel Performa3 M106
ATC SCM 11
I like a slightly forward sound that still has a lot of depth to it. Good soundstage and tonality. Something non fatiguing. I do listen to a broad spectrum of music and formats, often in the same setting. Any thoughts or experiences would be appreciated.
