Floor standing speakers for Onkyo NR609 - mainly TV & movies, occasional music
I'm looking to buy some floor standing speakers - or excellent book shelf speakers. We live in a flat and the speakers will be used through the Onkyo amp and we'll be watching from a Samsung 46' 7 series TV. I was considering some Focal 816w's but not sure if its worth spending the extra for them. I don't really have a fixed budget but guess I'd like to spend under £1k.
I was tempted by a set of Linn Keilidh floor standing speakers and getting them second hand. Not sure how good these would be for tv shows and movies? I spoke to a shop earlier who said the B&W 836's would be perfect? A different shop said the CM8's are definitely worth the extra? Everything we watch is HD...
I live in HK and finding shops with speakers to demonstrate is proving tough at present. So thought I'd ask online
What would you suggest?
PS. I did also post regarding some Danish Studio Power speakers but I don't know the history and can't find much online. They are apparently a very good make & speaker, and going for around £400 from a high end hifi shop. They couldn't let me hear them, but said I can arrange an appointment to hear them sometime.
