Speaker suggestions

Hi all

My system is CD based with a Cyrus DAD3Q, Yaqin MC-100B tube amp (KT88s) and Tannoy Mercury M4s. There is also an Apple MacMini for computer audio with all tracks at losless channeled by optical cable through a Cambridge DACMagic 2.

The speakers are getting a little on the old side, though the system still sounds very good. Can anyone recommend floorstanders that can be mounted only a few inches from a solid wall? And yes, they do have to be that close, so please don't recommend anything that has to be out in the room as it is impractical and unhelpful.

Many Thanks

JS

Not floorstanders, but I would suggest the Guru Juniors or Guru QM10 models if you have to go tight to a wall.

My speakers are pretty close to the back wall of the room they are in - I'd say around 9 inches.

I'm pretty happy with the set-up as it is currently, my only criticism is that overblown bass on CDs does tend to be a little exaggerated through thr KEFS. I don't notice the same issue with digital music or with vinyl...

Anyway, as ever, speakers are a very personal choice, but I'd certainly recommend mine.

There a a few speakers that work pretty well close to rear wall but, as has been said, they are very much a personal choice.

Do you have a budget and how big is the room itself?
