Are these bookshelf speakers (Tangent Monitor 2) any good?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, y'all. I bought these speakers cause I saw them going for cheap and I thought why the hell not? However, what can I actually expect from them? With a Lepai TA2020 amp would they be better than, for example, a Logitech X-540?

Why did you automatically assume I hadn't already tried that? I can't find any information on this specific model.

I have heard about the Monitor 6 at diy forums.
Why not give em a shot with the Lepai amp? you have not much to lose.

Those Tangents actually appear well made and were always in direct competition with JPW mini monitors IIRC The 1st link in my sig has peeps all over the world feeding back their experience mating with various speakers (US/UK/etc) with the TA2020 wink.gif
