RE: The perfect all rounder. The impossible dream?

i honestly feel that through the magic of the internet we've put our heads together and solved my dilemma! <img src=" title="" width="40" height="20" class="smiley-class smileysProcessed" />

thanks so much everyone.  i will now go and find a marantz and start testing speakers that can fit on my bookshelves, look great and sound a million dollars!  Wish me luck.  and Thank You all for all your help and advice.

Good luck. Smile Let us know how you get on.

 

One more thing to bare in mind while you're listening to different speakers. Remember that the speakers which sound the most exciting in a shop when you hear them for a few seconds may not necessarily be the speakers that are the most comfortable to listen to for long periods of time.

 

When you're trying out the different speakers ask yourself this question "Would I want to listen to these for many hours at a time?"

RE: The perfect all rounder. The impossible dream?

thanks for the tip steve_1979 and BenLaw thank you too, as you say it seems i had the answer all along but 46 replies ago i wasn't sure,  all the replies helped to get me here!  though there is still a tiny voice inside my head saying 'what about that onkyo?'...... (kidding - it's not compact enough!)

Heh. Well, the Marantz ain't much smaller while the Onkyo offers more...I'll leave it at that.  ;-)
