Maggie as a second set

If you could buy 3.5's or 1.6qr for same cost, whats more bang for the buck?
Main speakers are Von Sweikert vr4 hse. Either will be run from Mac mc352 or cary v12r at vatious times.
50-60's jazz and classic rock mostly played.
What is the size of the room the speakers would be in?
That would make a big difference.
It's a pretty large space, good point.
If you have the space the 3.5's would be an easy pick, for me.
I would buy the IIIa before the 3.5, I think it's a better speaker.
Not sure about the MC352 but the V12 won't be enough to drive the 3.5.
