Hi everyone

Hoping to get some advice from all you hifi gurus! basically i'm a student in liverpool so not a whole lot of spare cash but i want a good set of floorstanding speakers. I'd say I listen to quite a broad range of music. From Blink 182 to Carter burnell to Dire Straits to ben Howard. so want something decent for every thing. now for the bad news budget.

realistically looking at a budget of £70. can anyone help me out?

Anyone had any experience of Ditton Carina DC7 speakers? there are some near where I live being auctioned a the moment.

Those old Celestions should be OK but they won't be capable of handling particularly high levels. I'd be looking for something a little more modern. Keep an eye open for some of the late 80s/early 90s Mordaunt-Shorts and Missions. The other speakers you should definitely look out for are the Sony SS-176Es which were great and should be pretty cheap to pick up used. Hope this helps.

Thanks for all the help guys think i may have managed to get a pair of acoustic energy aegis evo 3's under budget which i really didn't expect. if you have any suggestions as to a very cheap intrim amp to run these it would be much appreciated. cheers
