Best Speakers for an ageing system.


Standard Member
Hello, due to financial and convenience reasons I am stuck using an old
Hitachi Opus 2 system and require some decent sounding speakers for it.

Output: 50w + 50w
Total Harmonic Distortion: 0.5%
Sensitivity: 40µv(S/N 26dB)
Speakers: Load Impedance 8 - 16 Ohms

£0 - £300

Deep but clear sound for normal listening, but also capable of reasonable quality volume output for house parties.

Do you guys have any good ideas?

Those do look nice, that unit looks pretty dismal in the specs section I know but I plan to replace it at some point. Thanks for the quick reply :) Keep 'em coming!
My current amplification unit doesn't have the outputs for bi-wiring? will single wiring actually make a difference to the quality?

They're great speakers and that is indeed a great price... 50 watts isn't exactly a poor amount, if you cranked it up too loud, they'd distort i'm sure... but you could easily tell when that was and turn it down a little.

You could consider picking up a cheap hifi amp from the classifieds here.... if you're that bothered about the poor aged thing!

Lol well it still works and through headphones at least sounds good. I did used to have a pair of Mordant Short 902is connect to it but they belonged to a friend and didn't provide the deepness in the size room I have.
