Hey guys and girls! Sorry for the lenghty text that follow, I'll add an TLDR in the bottom. I've just bought a new amp. After eyeing it for over a year, the Teac ai-501da was on a flash sale and I got it. Paid around €600 for it. Now, this isn't the most powerful amp you can get for the money, nor is it awarded or appraised by any of the larger audio/video media outlets. In fact, information, reviews and impressions regarding the amp is surprisingly scarce. But dammit, I still wanted it! As of now it's paired with a set of Yamaha NS-200, around 20 years old now, and my source of music is Spotify Premium. It sounds good, but not great. The sound that the amp produces I would label as warm and round, but to be honest, I don't know how much the Yamaha speakers accounts for. I've auditioned the B&W 685 S2 and the B&W CM5 with a similarly spec'd amp. The salesman suggested that I would go for stand mounted speakers over floorstanding for the Teac ai-501da. I haven't really set a budget, but I find it hard to motivate a price above €1000 for my wife. The best scenario would be speakers and stands for that money, but that wouldn't be the case if I would go for the KEF LS50, for example. I know that picking speakers is difficult and also subjective, so I wont ask for a specific speaker to choose (but I wouldn't mind if you directed me to a specific speaker, especially if you have this amp), but I just can't make sense of the technical data and specification of the different speakers which makes it difficult for me to understand them. So I would like some help with that. My living room is about 30 m2, probably larger, and that's where the speakers will be. I kind of have a list of speakers. Unfortunately, I'm not able to test these in my home environment so I have to either try them in the store or blindly trust the reviews. Here's the speakers on my long list: B&W 685 S2 KEF LS50 Focal Aria 906 KEF Q300 KEF R100 Guru Pro Audio Junior Q Acoustic Concept 20 Elac BS 192 Dynaudio Excite X14 Monitor Audio Silver RX2 If I've missed any info, please let me now. Thanks in advanced! //Srg. Kasto ____________ TL;DR I just got a Teac ai-501da and now I'm looking for speakers. I would label the sound that the amp produce as warm and round. Hifi-salesman suggested I'd go for stand mounted. I want to create a decent short list of speakers but I can't make sense of all the technical data. My budget is tops €1000, preferably with stands included (but that's more of a challenge than a criteria). The speakers are to be placed in a large living room, about 30 m2.
