    Floorstander or standmount.

    Currently looking to move on from my Quad 11Ls for something hopefully somewhat better. I really do not want to change my amp Audio Analogue Puccini SE, 50W into 8 ohms as I think it is a cracker. Am considering floorstanders but they will obviously need a bit more power to drive than the...

    Question RB-82 II thoughts

    Can anyone recommend a competing floorstander in the same price range as the RB-82 II, which are going for $600 for the pair on Amazon?

    Question Floorstander v Standmount: which is best?

    I‘ve been loving my system (Marantz CD6006 UK as transport, Roksan Kandy K3 DAC, Rega Brio, Monitor Audio Bronze 5) but I have been recently reflecting on floor standing vs stand mount speakers.
