    mini bookshelf for mini-hifi HI-FI advice
    Can I use regular bookshelf (1" high, 6.5" woofer, 100W) Speaker for mini-hifi (17W receiver), or use mini bookshelf speaker (.75' high, 5.25 or 4.75" woofer), which is better?

    Which is better will depend entirely on the quality of the speakers and how they partner with your mini hifi. The size of the speaker has little to do with how dificult it is to drive.

    If possible try both and see which one sounds best.

    Since my room is quite small and I like close listening, is it better to use mini bookshelf speaker, AE 301?

    1 inch high but a 6.5 inch woofer, that sounds like a very, very long centre channel speaker. I would say to get your figures right and get some specs before asking for advice on here.
