The question : what floorstanding speakers would SuperUniti owners recommend for my situation?
In detail : After almost 30 years in hibernation I’m looking to upgrade my old system. We use it roughly 2/3 streaming, typically Radio Paradise, and 1/3 CDs, typically rock and eclectic (no RAP, no classical), and good bass is a priority.
I quite fancy a SuperUniti now I can get a good used one for less than £1,500. My wife saw Radio Paradise on the display screen of publicity shots and decided that’s fate. I’m now looking for floorstanding speakers to sit on one of the short walls of a 4m x 6m room with a small open arch on the opposite wall into a 4m x 4m room. My budget is restricted by common sense and value for money rather than having a set limit, and Initially I’m looking at used as I think I can get better value for money that way.
Currently I have some very old Morduant Short floorstanders downstairs and my divorce present from 10 years ago, Quad Q1 bookshelves and an MJ Reference 100 sub, in another room.
If I want to buy new my local outlet, a NAIM dealer, Richer Sounds, is only 4 miles away, but for various reasons I’d like to leave that as an option for later. As I’m quite happy to buy used, I spent a few happy hours seeing what eBay had near me (Redhill, Surrey) and looking up reviews without finding anything definitive. I searched here and found a few posts but nothing that grabbed me (eg Neat Motive SX2, but are these too cheap?) and passed by my wife (“you’re not getting any in black”).
My wife goes on looks alone, so she liked the light wood ones such as a pair of Audio Physik Libras (£850-£1,000, on the cheap side?) or some custom Wilmslow Floorstanding Speakers, Audionote wired, SEAS drivers (£1,150, but how do you value them? and they’re a long way to go for a test drive).
Thanks in advance for any interest and help.
