Videoton Minimax - forgot how good they were.
Hi all, first post here. I don't own kit of the quality of some of the stuff I see on here but would welcome some advice.
For about 16 years I have had a Denon D110 mini system hooked up to a pair of Kef Q10 speakers. I've been very happy with this but not really listened to anything else over the years. Anyway, to get to the point, at the weekend I was clearing out and came across an ancient pair of Videoton Minimax 2s which I had stored away many years ago. I hooked them up to the Denon to see if they still worked and it was something of a revelation. They sound so much clearer than the Q10s and although my first impression is that there is less bass, I think it is a case of less is more. Amazing sound for such a small speaker. The Q10s sometimes sound boomy in comparison and the bass can overwhelm the mid / upper frequencies.
So, for now I'm happy listening to the Videotons but they have set me thinking about more modern speakers. Do you think I could get more out of the Denon by upgrading to something else. Small bookshelf / stand mounts would be required with a budget up to £300. There isn't a lot of information on the internet about the Denon system, the D110 was one of a range of mini systems produced by Denon in the 90's. It has a 40W amp if that helps. There are some pictures of a D110 here if it jogs anyones memory - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/faulty-DENON-D-110-CD-twin-tape-tuner-amp-hi-fi-sy... it was a £900 system when I bought it in 1994.
Thanks for any advice.
