In search of (small) speakers that are good for Brit-pop
Here's the story sofar:
I already have a Marantz CD5000, that replaced an old Technics cd player. The Marantz was a big improvement over the technics. I currently have it paired with an old Technics stereoreceiver, till my Marantz PM66 KI comes back from being repaired. It should arrive here this week.
I had the Marantz pair hooked up to my current speakers (Salora KS330) and it sounded underwhelming. The Saloras weren't bad when used with the Technics set, but the Marantzs really show whats lacking. It generally sounded cluttered, and guitars didn't have any body.
Therefore, I've decided I need some new speakers, definitely bookshelfs as they will be used in a very small room. Namely 4 by 4 meters (13 by 13 feet). My budget isn't big, 300-400 euros for the speakers. Decent stands will be bought later, and are not taken into consideration yet so the budget is for the speakers alone.
As the topic title suggest, I listen to a lot of britpop (and rock alike) and I would like a system with a detailed, exciting sound. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I've listened to the Monitor Audio BR2's, and I liked them, but I found them to be pretty bright and somewhat coloured. Any other takers in suggested pricerange? Kind regards!
