I am after a pair of high quality standmount speakers with good bass around the £800 - £1000 price range. I like the look of the Yamaha Soavo 2 standmount speakers and after listening to them at a dealer in the Northwest, I liked them as they sounded neutral & musical but abit bass shy. Kind of safe bet type of sound, but not very exciting.
Another speaker I am also considering is for a secondhand pair of Jamo D830 - Concert 8 standmount speakers. There is plenty of rave reviews & information available online and you could pick them up for around the £500 - £600. They cost £1500 when new, 10 - 12 years ago and also won the European EISA award. They are now dis-continued. Since I have not heard a pair before, I cannot compare them to the Yamaha Soavo 2!
Which one is the better speakers? They both are aprox the same size and volume and my gut instinct tells me to go for the Jamo D830/Concert 8?
