    Just bought a new reciever Harman Kardon AVR335 and I am looking for some new front speakers to go with it but my budget is low as I only have a max of 200 to spend I understand that book shelf would be best in this price range but SWMBO has said (that she likes those tall wooded ones) so I have to go with the master.
    Can you help


    Cheers Darko

    I can strongly recommend Tannoy Revolution R2's. Excellent floorstanders for the money, available for less than £150 (you'll have to look around though, they were discontinued a few years ago).

    Great with classical music & voices. Decent bass extension too.

    I would consider going for good second hand speakers. After seeing what can be had for £200 2nd hand I will never buy new speakers again. Buy them from someone reputable and they should be as good as new, even if 5-10 years old. And speakers that were excellent 10 years ago are still excellent now.

    I would have to agree with this. It can make the chance of a demo pretty slim but when you consider the savings you can make it has to be worth considering. What's more if you look for the right deal you should be able to re-sell for the same price if you make a mistake.

    Agreed, it's demo-ing that is the problem. It's worth getting around and trying a few out without obligation though; I would hate to buy on the basis of reviews alone.
