This may have been asked countless of times, if so, please forgive me but here it goes.
I am curious and looking for opinions on what would make a good pairing with my soon to arrive Stellar M700’s.
My preference is to definitely not rely on a subwoofer and try to stay under $2k for a pair of speakers.
Would also prefer that they can work with all genres of music as I listen to most kinds. The look of the speakers is not as important as their performance. The room is an acoustically treated rectangle of 15ft W by 20ft L.
Some of the options I’ve been contemplating so far are, in no particular order of importance:
- SVS Ultra Towers
- Goldenear Triton 5
- B&W 805 D3 (I know is considered bookshelf, but it has a low range that the room can accommodate)
- Emotiva AirMotiv2
- KEF R900
- B&W 802 D2s (of course some of these are used)
- B&W CM9
I will be playing both analog and digital sources and occupying every input that the Stellar Gain Cell DAC has to offer.
If you have happen to already have any of those above in your setup, I’ll be very thankful if you share your experience or any pairing close to my criteria as well.
