Now that I've decided, and anxiously waiting for arrival, on the Primaluna Prologue two, the search for speakers is underway. I'm putting together a system piece by piece. Amp, speakers, tt, cdp. In that order. I'm looking at stand mount monitors. Something along the lines of Proac 110's, Totem model 1 signatures, etc.
I have used the following monitors with the Prologue Two:
Rega Ara (now Rega R1) - $550 NHT SB2 (now NHT Classic 2 and Classic 3) - $600/$800 Omega Super 3 - $800
All were different sounding to a degree ... the Omega is a single driver monitor and presented music in a very realistic, in your face manner ... the NHT had a very detailed upper end and were almost 3D sounding ... the Rega were surprisingly full sounding for mini monitors and had a good amount of bass.
Depending on your room size and listening habits, speaker efficiency will come into play. With that said, there are many speakers that will work well with the PL2.
BTW, the Music Hall CD 25.2 and Rega Apollo are excellent CD players to match with the PL2.
Not sure about the "mini" aspect of your request but , I am using Reference 3a De Cappo i's with my PP2 . These have a fairly flat impedance curve , >90db. efficiency with only a capacitor for a crossover network . In a small room , I have no need for a sub . Quite resolving and good at low level listening . A very nice combination .
Roll in some Mullard 12ax7's for more base and a little more warmth without loosing the lovely top end .
I suggest looking for a used pair of ProAc 1sc's. They will 'sing' with tubes, as mine do. I run them from VAS mono blocks. I also have run them from the Cayin 88. In addition to the 1sc's, I have ProAc 140's, a floor stander. Both of the amps sound sweet. Much of the design of the VAS and Cayin products is the same as the Prima's.
Don't overlook the Silverline Minuets. They have gotten great reviews and I heard a stacked (horizontally) pair at Silverline and was greatly impressed. If I was in the market these would be my 1st choice. $600 retail. Not a lot of money spent on the cabinet, but the sound is great.
When I listened to the Dynaudios with the Prologue, it was in a medium small listening room as I recall, about 15x20x8. At normal listening levels to volumes high enough to chase the sales person out of the room the sound remained coherent.
The Focus 140 has the same sensitivity as the Audience 52/52SE so it should perform similarly, but with perhaps a bit more resolution. I have listened to these through an ARC tube amp, and they sounded and looked beautiful. My guess is that the P2 power supply is big enough to drive the 140s at moderate volumes in a medium sized room at 4 ohms without breaking a sweat, although I haven't heard this particular combination.
Thanks Kn. You're prposed system above is real close to what I was expecting. The P5 is definately on the list. There is a local dealer that handles the Dynaudio and Totems. Another dealer carries the Proac's. On paper, the Dynaudio's are more appealing..... but, we know how that goes.....
