Looking at a new pair of bookshelves...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My budget is probably $200. I'm looking for something that has excellent highs and mids, and that will sound good with the Dayton Sub-100/120. Just through a quick run through Craigslist, http://charleston.craigslist.org/ele/2240861976.html caught my eye. Any recommendations?

They can be passive or active, makes no difference to me. I already have a receiver (Adcom GTP-600) and an amp (Adcom GFA-535 II).

Dude.

You will be amazed that these little buggers only cost $220, and you Adcom will be an excellent match.

I wouldn't look at JBL for HiFi. By the way, the Cambridge have an amazing sound signature that includes detailed, musical mids and clear highs, and a huge stoundstage. The only thing they lack is deep, powerful bass- I threw in a subwoofer, and this setup sounds like something twice the price.

Or, if you're into powered stuff, AudioEngine A2s are the best bet in this price range, bar none.

lol!

Anyway, my recommendation is the Infinity P162 or P163, you should be able to find either for 180~200/pr or the Behringer B2030p for the same amount.
