Small Bookshelf Speakers

Recommended Posts

Super Wammer

I am putting a very small system together for my Niece who lives in Ibiza . Elena is not interersted in equipment at all so has left it to me. I thought I had the system fixed with a Nobosound Amplifier and a pair of JBL Control 1 speakers that i already had stored. However when I get the JBL units out the foam surrounds on woofers has perished and it is not worth spending the money to get them fixed.

I am looking for a pair of small bookself speakers and they need to be small as I will taking them out in my case to deliver them later this year. I will also probably take them to Kegworth and show them in the Suitcase system challenge .

If anyone has anything and under £100 for sale that would suit let me know .

I would say keep your eyes peeled for a pair of Goodmans Maxim2, a wicked pair of speakers that have no right to sound as good as they do. I currently have a pair hooked up in a subsystem of my main rig, (using a Pioneer 400X as a power amp on the 2nd pair of outputs on the MasterSound pre) 170 x 200(Inc grills) x 260. Usually <£50 on fleabay.

Okay offered and was countered and have bought the pair as per the link for 44.99 plus postage . Thanks for all your help I have never heard this speaker but trust Lurch and will use these for the system as whatever they are they will so much better than any midi / mini system speaker. Just hope that they will fit in my suitcase when I come to take them out to my Niece.

Well his (Lurch) hearing is better than your spelling of his name . I met Lurch last year at Kegworth and heard only too briefly his system . If he can put that sound together then I am sure he knows what does and does not sound decent . I trust him and thank you for giving me the lead , this is why despite all the silly things that go on I love the Wam people just hepl and give you good advice .

Andrew, would you like me to stick a pair of 700mm atacama stands in my car for the Maxim2s?? Also have a rather nice pair of Audioquest Indigo SCs that I use with mine.

Hi Lurch think if I am in the Suitcase challenge that would be considered a bit of a cheat but thanks for the offer . Will just use the desk in the room of whatever I can find .
