I would welcome some advice please. My Dad (who is 80 years of age) wishes to update his Hi-Fi system. He has enlisted my help to research it for him ! He was originally going to purchase the Denon DM38, but on reading the review in this month’s What Hi-Fi magazine, thinks the newer DM39 would be better. The main stumbling block now is which speakers to choose. He is not keen on visiting a showroom to listen to the speakers, and is happy to accept the advice of the experts. The speakers will be situated on wooden corner shelves in the far corners of the room (against a wall) at a height of about 6 foot. The room is approx 18ft long by 10ft wide. I have done some research and this is what I have come up with:-
1. Monitor Audio Bronze BX2 – These seem to attract the best reviews and comments. They are just within his budget.
2. Dali Zensor 1 – Again seem to have good reviews, but some people say they are lacking in bass.
3. Wharfedale Diamond 10.0 or 10.1 (The 9.1’s seemed to attract great reviews – are these even better ?)
4. Finally just seen some KEF C1 as a package deal, but not researched these !
My Dad and I would really appreciate any help or advice regarding the speakers mentioned above or any others we may not have even considered.
