Marantz MCR-603 - Thinking of these speakers
Demo permitting, I'm looking at getting an MCR 603, used 100% for music.
Ideally I'm after a 2.1 setup (it's for a family room, no space for floor standers) - I know i'm not going to get audiophile quality, I just want something to pump out a pleasing sound with a good thump (my tastes are about 80% house music, 20% everything else). Will be considering book shelfs too, but not sure I'd get the required/perceived bass.
Was originally going to head down the second hand Bose Acoustimass 5 route, but understand there are better value/quality options, primarily the Boston Acoustics Soundware XS 2.1.
I just wonder how the Marantz would perform with the Boston setup - they don't appear very sensitive from the spec sheets (85db, 8 Ohm).
As I mentioned, not after audiophile quality (obviously!) - I just want a pleasing sound that engages the listener, making you want to turn it up.... if that makes sense? A room full of punch wherever you are, not a chair lined up in a perfect triangle with the speaker
Any advice/comments on the Boston/Bose/2.1 Alternatives/Marantz match greatly appreciated.
