I've been around hi-fi for a few years and I haven't heard any small inexpensive speakers sound phenominal.davedotco said:Anyone who has been around hi-fi for a few years will have heard small, inexpensive speakers sound phenominal on the end of a really good system...keeper of the quays said:If anyone thinks having a cheap pair of speakers at the end of quality hifi? They live in cloud cuckoo land! I have never heard such nonsense...the speakers should be the best you can afford..if not new? Then secondhand.
None that I've heard have been able to bridge the gap between sounding like a hi-fi and not sounding like a hi-fi - as in; like a set of musicians playing instruments and singing, with a wide variety of recordings.
And that is my definition of phenominal when it comes to hi-fi.
In this day and age, it's quite easy to get affordable, good sounding sources, amplification and speakers. I don't see why anyone has to skimp on any part of the hi-fi chain.
