I'm looking for some small speakers to complete a system.

Vintage?

Modern ?

Always fancied trying these, they seem to only be available in America though. https://www.roleaudio.com/skiff

LS3/5A probably the ultimate suitcase speaker tho. Cubic inch for inch, as they say :D

I’d wager a couple of Play Ones would see off a lot of these and only need a smartphone with some 320k AAC (or ALAC) rips as a source. A shoebox for a pair of size 11 Docs and a bit of bubble-wrap would suffice instead of a suitcase!

You know you might be right, there are some great bluetooth speakers out there now, might even see 'some' of the bigger systems off, that would be embarrassing.

Minirigs with a dedicated sub kicks ass. Might even fit it all in your pockets, your coat pockets obviously :D Not your Lycra cycling shorts, or you may get some strange looks :D

I'm going to try old school, pre, power dac, source and speakers. If I can nail the speakers reckon I'll have a red hot little system. Unf I can't stretch to the likes of Spendor, Harbeth etc

Mordaunt shorts ms10i, budget bargains and can upstage many a higher price speaker in the right system.

Right, cheap little speakers bought, they get very mixed reviews so it remains to be seen if they are good enough, will report back in a week or so.

In terms of suitcase size, I'm planning to bring a big one but it's within airline size limits as I recently took it on holiday, I assume that's ok?
