Thanks for the response.
I am currently in between speakers. I am running my spare set of Cambridge Audio S30s. The speakers are from an abandoned office system. They sound good with the Moon--way good for a $200 pair of speakers. However, they have limitations and are not nor ever have been considered a long term option.
I could go into the CA's limitations but I do not believe that would be helpful. Again they are really good for the price but I am looking for speakers with a retail price of 10 times that of the CAs. I think any of the speakers that I am looking at will outperform the CAs in every category.
I should add that I had been using Gallo ref 3.5s. Great speakers that worked very well with my Rogue Athena & Medusa preamp and amp. However, that set up had double the power and cost three times as much.
I am downsizing and sold the Rogue equipment first. I never intended to use the Moon and Gallos together. After trying them, I was right. The Gallos were not a good match. Too hard to drive
The amp drives the CAs with ease; hence, my thoughts of the speakers named above. I am leaning towards the Paradigm S1s and adding a JL Audio F110 is needed.
I think the Simaudio Moon i3.3 should work well with the Paradigm S1s, and since youve listened to the speakers, there shouldnt be any surprises. Higher sensitivity speakers will offer greater dynamics at high volume, but if your previous setup was satisfying , this one should be OK. Now if you felt the previous system was reaching its limits, it may be better to rethink the speakers.
