Bourney

easy to drive Stand mount speakers

Recommended Posts

i think i have pretty much read up on most of this ilk, just wondering if anyone has any wildcards or anything i may have over looked.

I dont want anything with a lightweight balance but i do like a prominent midrange and a top end with presence without being stark. i am looking for something that is a good alrounder with great imaging and it must work with my 30 watt amp...

you know..just like the JM labs i just sold! :x

Also, i think i am looking front ported for them to work in my new room.

budget of approx £500

I think they're great. Tonally correct and musical, but they're rather laid back. I'm not sure Bourney will like them. TBH I don't know what he's after, he changes speakers like I change socks!

Don't know, would have to look at the impedance curve to see how easy they are to drive.

Another vote, or if space is a premium, the RW16's.

Also Audio Note do a range of easy to drive speakers, available at Noteworthy.

Thats a very good point. They suffer from box colouration but make a very pleasant sound regardless. Work well close to rear walls too.

He's already had a pair of the 33's.

Why not just go for a pair of Royd stand mounts Steve seeing as you like them so much?

Steve, try a pair of Music 3s! ok, they're rear ported, but I find that provided they're not too close to the corners, they work well near the rear wall. They shoule be fine near your alcoves.

Also, as i've said, they're quite a big improvement over the R series.

Call me biased, but hey - I know you like the Revolver sound.

Bourney have a serach on the net for Diapason – I landed my Emera’s for £450 from UKD. You should also be within range for a set of Karis. They don’t have the same bass as my 1.3 IIs but they are classy speakers – different sounding rather than inefrior to the Dyns, they do things with female voice and the midband I really enjoy.
