Best small speakers
:shifty: Help.... I have some Dali Zensor 1 speakers that cost £200.  They are truly 5 star. I want to get some speakers for the kitchen and thought a white pair of these would suit.  My dilemma is that the write up of the Q Acoustic 2020i's are also 5 star.  These are £220 in white. Both speakers would run off a Yamaha A-S500 stereo amp with generally one pair running at a time.  One is a smaller room 7x9' and one is a larger room 12'x18'. Which are the better speakers?

RE: Best small speakers

I'm afraid the only way you are going to find that out is audition both yourself.

If you are happy with the Dali sound just buy another pair.

Loads of second hand expensive kit!

RE: Best small speakers

Perhaps stop looking at star ratings and consider other brands that are available doing small speakers.  I'd add £80 and include the Tannoy DC4.

RE: Best small speakers

You might want something smaller for the kitchen.  However, you can see how they sound before you decide, but unless you are very fortunate, the speakers are likely to be near wall or work tops, which may make them boomy.

Definitely don't just look a 5 star ratings; see what your dealer has and recommends.

That would be my advice also. The Zensor 1 is a very good speaker  Smile
