    ADVICE - Pinchy and harsh treble vs Woolly and flabby bass floorstanders

    Hi all. I'm looking to replace my old Mission 71i speakers with some decent quality floorstanders. Everything I've tested so far sounds very harsh. Monitor speakers we're shrill, although they had great clarity, Fyne 302s were the same and even Focals, which we're priced at around £1,000...

    Hi Folks, I have Monitor Audio MR6 floorstanders (6 ohms) connected to a NAD 3020i amp (25 W per channel). Really pleased with the sound but starting to think about the limitations of the NAD amp so I can get the best out of the 2 channel speakers. I don't tend to play at high volumes as I'm in...

    Stand mount or floorstanders?

    As a general rule, are floorstanders meant for bigger rooms and stand mount for smaller rooms? Appreciate it's probably a dumb question but I'm looking to upgrade and want to start off on the right route. Any pointers much appreciated.

    Small Speakers + Sub v Floorstanders

    The traditional approach to great sound will have you believe big floor standing speakers will give the best sound. I disagree. Here is why……… The weakest link in a good audio system is the way the room changes the sound of your speakers, and the problems are most obvious in the low...

    Replacing old floorstanders with 2.1 setup?

    Hello, I have a 20 year old pair of cheap (but much loved) Mission 702e floorstanding speakers. They are connected to a similarly old Sony TA-FE330R 2 channel amp. I'm not an audiophile by any stretch but I love the "solidity" of the sound (i.e. bass!) compared to cheap crappy tinny speakers...
