As of about an hour or two ago I made my decision.
Excellent choice. Rega make first-class amplifiers. It will give you a lot of listening pleasure.As of about an hour or two ago I made my decision.
I went and listened to the Cyrus One HD, Audiolab 6000A and the Rega Brio. Tested it with B&W 606s and MA Silver 200s.
I narrowed it down to the Cyrus and the Brio, I enjoyed their sound much more to the Audiolab. The Audiolab sounded very neutral in comparison.
I opted for the Brio as it was cheaper and I'll likely gain very little value from the Cyrus on board DAC given I'll be using a streamer (with DAC). The power of the Cyrus would have been a bonus though.
I'm now stuck trying to decide between a raspberry pi streamer or Bluesound node. Discussing this in another thread!
I nearly bought the Cyrus as it has HT like the Audiolab but I decided to stick with the Brio in the end.Excellent choice. Rega make first-class amplifiers. It will give you a lot of listening pleasure.
3x Opticon LCR would be a lot of speaker!If you have a subwoofer in the living room, have you considered moving the opticon 6 mk2 into the back room and getting a pair of opticon mk2 LCR for left and right duties in the living room.
The new 7g Silvers look nice and they might impress her?Got the MA Silver 100s home and my OH is not happy with their size, they might need to go back
Are there other smaller speakers that you'd recommend?
Oberon 3 might be a good shout. I will check their dimensions.Yeah the silver 50s but they're not cheap for tiny bookshelf speakers. On paper, they lack the bass so probably not suitable for a large open plan space unless you add a sub.
How about the Oberon 3.. smaller than silver 100 but have a 7 inch woofer.
All personal preference, some love the way they sound, some don't.. Personally Ive never been a fan of the sound signature of B and w speakers.Oberon 3 might be a good shout. I will check their dimensions.
I was originally looking at B&W 606s as well. On paper they are smaller than the Silver 100s but not by a large amount. I wonder if it would be enough.
Any thoughts on B&W 607?
Would you consider the MA Silver 50s then?Sonus Faber Lumina. If you need subwoofers or not is probably a yes.
Warm sound, but over priced. Oberon 3 are fine speakers, go for those.
Me personally if looking for stand mounted speakers would buy the new MA speakers.
I am considering the MA Silver 50, the new series. To put in the room I have my Oberon 5, and add one subwoofer in the corner.
Which dimensions does the top plate has? Height also? Do they accept M6.M8 spikes? Perhaps considering the silver 50.100 speakers. But both are large speakers.Here’s my latest config: the Concept 20s up one end, the B&W 606s the other. Cosmetically, my OH loves them both. Sonically, I do as well !
You can get it all in black too. However, listen if you can. …
If I am not wrong the Concept stands are 200 in depth. With is 13 cm.I think the 606 might look smaller than the MA Silver 100s...thoughts?
