- What speakers do you have?
“Possibly 751s. Never felt the need to get something bigger/more expensive.“
Wait until the cones go brittle and fall apart. I had some 733s that I really liked. Until the cones fell apart 🙁
Ended up with Monitor Audio in-ceiling speakers in the lounge now as there’s no space for floorstanders any more. Not hugely impressed with them tbh.Posted 8 months agoPierreMember
Bose Acoustimass 5s from the mid-to-late-90s, given to me by my father-in-law about 15 years ago. They’re not super-audiophile but they’re clear and sound good across the range and the sub is punchy and sounds good when hidden away and seems to have a well-tuned crossover. They work well with my Cambridge Audio amp.
This thread has reminded me that sometimes I like just listening to music – I so rarely get the chance these days, but wife and son are away this weekend, so it looks like I might have time!Posted 8 months agoThree_FishMember
I’m using a recently acquired pair of Bang & Olufsen Beovox S120s, which I had to replace the woofer foams on. I’m not wholly convinced by their low-mid detail, but otherwise a very nice sound through a fairly cheap Onkyo amp. The ‘B’ speakers in the other room are old Mordaunt Short M10s, which I love to bits – fantastic little monitors.Posted 8 months agoaphex_2kMember
Just sold my Tannoy 633 that I’ve had for about ten years and go some Cerwin-Vega E-710. OK so they’re nowhere near audiophile quality but I’m blown away by how good they sound to me. Going through all my favourite “test a new system” tunes and they all sound fab . just interested in what other people have.Posted 8 months agoaphex_2kMember
There’s a guy near me selling a pair of 602s, pair of 601s, centre and amp for a decent price. Really love the look and sound I just can’t get more kit past the missus. Like bikes, hifi is n+1 for me. Even got some wee mission m30i and Onkyo mini system in the kitchen.
After a good couple of hours rocking the cerwins I realised I had my amp set to “small” fronts. Changed to large and jeeeeeesus they ain’t subtle.Posted 8 months agoMilkieMember
Probably totally irreverent to what you will be using them for..
Mackie SRM450’s matched to a Peavey amp or a Rotel if in the spare room.
& Adam A3x Active Speakers
I think in the living room there are a pair of 3 way floorstanders that are well over 10 years old.. Recently re-coned my Kenwood active sub which definitely helps the floor standers.
Loved the sound of the B&W 601’s hooked up to the Rotel or Citrus amp, very neutral sound.Posted 8 months agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Tannoy DC6T’s, £249 from Richer Sounds a couple of years ago.
Very happy with them on the end of a Marantz PM66KI amp.
Pair of Monitor Audio RS2’s in the main downstairs room, hooked up to a Denon Micro.

An old pair of Mission 700s like these…
Wish I’d never sold mine, they’re brilliant for such an unassuming pair of speakers.Posted 8 months agoderek_starshipMember

I can’t stop thinking how this man is suffering so. It’s put a big fat shadow over my weekend.
I’m easily pleased. A pair of bookshelf Gale hooked up to a Denon micro.Posted 8 months ago
Less than £250 and good enough.
