Hi! I'm looking for a pair of good bookshelf speakers for a tight budget. I've been thinking of buying the Elac debut 5b.2's(based on the great reviews), but I can't listen to them so you know... I've also been looking at the MonitorAudio brone 2.

Please help me! What do you think I should buy? I like base and depth in speakers so give me a tip if you know a pair.

Thank you!

Do you have a budget in mind?
Both of the speakers you mention are good in the right circumstances. However, we don't know the rest of your kit, room size etc.
Personally I have a lot of time for speaker designed by Andrew Jones.
Speakers are the hardest things to recommend, apart from possibly cartridges.
If you can get either for a good price you shouldn't have too much trouble selling on if they don't do it for you

I have a Marantz pm7001 amp and a room that's about 20 square meter. I cant go over 300 euro.

You ok Second hand? If so if you like bass and depth id look at the mission 700 series 701's but if you have a little more room the 702e's.

slighly newer would be m72 and m73

Very very good speakers probably set you back no more than 100 euros tops

You won't be disappointed, I started with the B6.2's. These speakers do need to be pushed, I have them paired with the SVS sound base. Definitely worth checking it out. Adding a powered subwoofer would also be something I would suggest. I went with the SUB3010 also from Elac. It's an overall great set up if you are starting to get into Hi-Fi audio.

They are very good for their price point. Also, have a listen to the Wharfedale Diamond 220 if you can. They are a great little speaker.
