Von Schweikert VR2 vs Polk Audio LSi15
Forgive me, I've probably made 10 posts in the last 2 months about what if's and such. For the most part this forum has been helpfull. I've really come to narrow down my speaker choices. As it stands right now my current setup is
Polk Audio LSi9
SimAudio Moon i-5080
Museatex DAC (full upgrades ala John Wright)
Museatex Transport (Was John Wright personal transport as of 6months ago
What I'm considering. A move to a fuller range speaker. I love the airy mids and openness of the Polk Audio LSi9's, I'm considering Polk Audio LSi15's to help in the bottom end. They're up against the VR2's, I have no local dealer but I'd be buying used and a few close sources have told me they offer a more lively presentation to rock music (which I listen to a great deal of).
Either speaker would be powered by the i-5080, with an upgrade to a Classe' CAP 151 or something of that ilk within 6months. My musical tastes include Radiohead, Massive Attack, Jet, Bjork, White Stripes, The Clash, Alice In Chains, Pulp, Nirvana...I hope I'm painting a clear picture.
What I'm afraid of most is harshness, something I hve none of with the LSi Vifa ring tweeter as of right now. What I'm looking for is a more resolved bottom end, deeper, wider. I'd like to hear and feel more of the kick drum when listening to rock by Jet, White Stripes, Alice In Chains, Nirvana. Without losing the openness in the mid range. So if I could I'd love to hear some thoughts.
Again, thanks...I know I've sure used up my time on this forum.
ps Ffonton I've tried emailing you, I'm dying for your thoughts.
