bookshelf confusion

hi

i'm planning to replace my 2 b&w m1's paired to pm6004 offcourse. they are warm, detailed, but much punchy as i want to.

i'm looking to alternatives that have the same sound quality, detailed, accurate, and a bit warm. i'm new in hifi so i don't know if my assumption about the m1 is right.

so, in a nut shelf: what are the better options for me?

kef iq30

kef q100

bx2

dali zensor 1 or lektor 1

wharfedale 10.1 or 10.2

 

or what do you guys suggest in these price range?

Epos Epic 1 or 2, very warm sounding!

RE: bookshelf confusion

Terminology aside they are either detailed and accurate or not. I don't feel they can be that and 'warm'.

Can you actually audition any of those in your list or would you be buying blind?

FYI I would not call any of the smaller KEF's warm.

Have you a budget? You do not say what part of the world you are in or what those speakers in your list retail for.

Loads of second hand expensive kit!

RE: bookshelf confusion

sorry for the missing information

 

i'm from belgium, and my budget is around 400 euros. here there a few hifi shops, but they only deal 1 or 2 brands, unfortunatly. most of the time: b&w and some kefs. so it's very hard to audition.

i want something for divers music, from iron maiden to bach for instence. and something with some build quality, i know there are 1000 sorts and models of speakers, but i wanted some solid choices that narrow my quest Blum 3

i hope i informed you a bit more,

RE: bookshelf confusion

KEF IQ series are not warm speakers!!!!!

 Try Wharfedale Diamond 10.2 , 122 or Dali Lektor 2.

Acoustic Energy Aegis Neo V 1, Monitor Audio BX 2 are great speakers for rock, but not warm and not bright speakers,  I can say they are neutral sounding

Diamond 10.1 and Lektor 1 have not enough bass for Iron Maiden, this is sure.
