I'm planning to upgrade my audioengine a2's to my first proper hifi-system. I've been searching for a while now and can't find serious comparisons between these speakers:
Dynaudio excite x12 (one (serious?) comparison said the former was better)
Monitor Audio rx2
Paradigm studio 10
Looks are not important, budget is sub 700 pounds and it is for a bedroom (13 by 16).
I listen most of the time rock (pink floyd, chameleons uk, joy division...) and ambient dubstep (eg mount kimbie), so good vocals and deep, controlled and precise bass are also required.
Tips for decent integrated amplifiers at the same price level (preferable a little bit lower, around 400-500 pounds) with any of those speakers would be very welcome.
