I will be buying new loudspeakers soon - exciting!
There’s many I’d like to try, but with what’s available for me to audition and in my budget (I am in regional Australia - travelling to Sydney for audition) I have a short list. Room is 5.3m long, 3.6m wide and 3.7m high ceilings. Amp is NAP250DR.
I am also looking for a particular aesthetic to fit the room - something in a nice wood veneer that isn’t too modern/hi tech looking.
Anyway I will auditioning;
Contrast Audio - Soul (in home demo)
Chario - Pegasus and Cielo (travel to Sydney)
Neat Orkestra (travel to Sydney)
Spendor Classic 3/1 and 2/3 (travel to Sydney)
There’s also ATC SCM 40’s (passive) and Proac Response D2R - D20R that i’d love to hear but would require flights and accommodation in Melbourne which I’m hesitant to because it really starts to add to the cost then.
The ATC’s and Proacs are still on my shortlist.
Unfortunately where I am there is very limited Hi Fi dealers/brands available to audition locally.
Any thoughts would be appreciated. Especially from ATC or Proac owners with Naim amplification.
