Hi everyone

This is my 1st post on here and I would appreciate your help. I have decided to buy the arcam solo and am undecided which speakers to buy to go with it. I have narrowed it down to either the B&W 686's or the Dynoaudio audience 42's. I would appreciate any advice as it is a good few years since i last bought a new hi-fi.

many thanks

Hi

Thanks for your reply

I did demo both sets of speakers at seperate stores and to be honest i couldn't tell much difference between them. I am thinking more towards the Dynaudio's, just because i think they are a smaller better looking speaker really, I was just interested to see if anyone could maybe recommend something or maybe they had bought the arcam solo with one of these speakers...

Yes, good bass too. Black's lovely. Also consider Epos if you have a dealer near you.

DM, TM - any ideas of stockists/distributor for the Ushers - they look like they might be an option (in white) for the kitchen...........

Edit: s'ok, found the list.

Worth a try but they need space around them or they boom JD. Had to pull them right out in small/medium room.

hi, i am having a demonstration on saturday of the ushers. unfortunately they don't have the arcam solo but it should still give me an idea of their sound. so i think it will be between these and the synaudio's..

Would'nt do that. If you're set on the solo buy it and take it with you. Otherwise take the Ushers for a home trial if offered. They really are bassy. Better safe than sorry.

hi

yes you are right, i see there is a hifi showroom in lewisham london where they sell the arcam and the ushers. i will go there on saturday for a demo. the problem is whenever i hear a system i like whatever is played. every speaker sounds good to me. too be honest that is why i placed this ad, i thought maybe there was one speaker that would be brilliant with the solo or maybe for the price...

thanks for the reply
