Stilleto's the best for £900?

19 posts in this topic

If you've seen the threads, you'll know I'm toyingwith home cinema...currently in the planning stage.I like he idea of starting in stereo and building later if I feel the need so.Shall I keep my Castle Howard's?or sell them and but something else... quite tempted by Art stiletto's at that price, but I would want to improve on the Howards, not stand still, so need a cleaner, more open and sweet sound...the Howards tnd toward impressive scale and are slightly bass strong and warmish. What would you get? This is to go on the front of a decent AV amp (Denon 3805?)

Ithink that just about describes the stilettos to a tee. Very neutral midrange and clean highs.Put them close to a wall though or you may notice a hint of bass-lightness.

Not bass- lightness as such. Maybe lacking in prescence slightly. Close to wall sighting seems to really make them sing.

Home Cinema

Go for Audio Salons set up. Look like they cost a bomb and sound sublime

I have Art spkrs so I'm biased and in no state to be posting at this time of day.

Cheers

I haven't heard the Stilletos so I don't know how they compare, but I would definately stick my neck out so far as to at least urge you to listen to the Neat Motive 2 (£850)if you get a chance before buying the Stilletos. The opennessand dynamics are a revelation, and might be just what you are looking for.
