He wants to buy speakers to match his integrated amp. He followed up his question by indicating some brands he is interested in and if anyone has heard or has opinions on them.
I used Spendor 1/2e speakers with an Electrocompaniet amp for a bit. I thought they were a great match and I am probably one of the few that feel Spendor Classic Series speakers work better with moderate to high powered solid state amps.
Focus on the basic sound and presentation. Anomalies like the one you mentioned of blurred lower bass can be caused by many things including room, cable, electronics etc. and there are just as many cures for this type of problem. Listening to equipment in a stereo store means very little and if you insert a single piece of equipment into your system without making adjustments it is also a waste of time. Find something (speakers/electronics) and spend some time with it to learn what it has to offer.
Vapor Audio Breeze
RAAL tweeter and Nomex cone symmetric drive Wavecor woofer.
Bookshelf sized speakers, using one of the finest tweeters on earth, delivering unmatched sound at it's price point.
The larger stand mount Aurora uses an 8" woofer and waveguide loaded Transducer labs Alumina ceramic dome tweeter. Floor standing sound in a stand mount monitor.
Both fit your budget.
Luvs2listen, you need to state your affiliation with Vapor Audio.
Some folks frown upon vendors recommending their speakers to potential customers here. Might as well let the happy customers who own the speakers do the selling for you.
That said, I own the Breeze speakers, in a custom finish, upgraded amorphous core Raal, Dueland resistors, and matching stands. I HIGHLY recommend the Breeze for folks looking for an amazing monitor, that is very detailed and resolving, disappear, throw a wide soundstage, fast bass, and the best highs I have ever heard. It's also a very musical speakers!!
