Speaker Advice needed plse??


Standard Member

Please can someone please help me with advice on speakers/sub?

I have read all the magazines and they have confused me ten fold!!

I am planning to buy the Pioneer AX10iS and the 868AViS

However to make the most of this equipement I have no idea what speakers/sub to go for!?!

Space is limited - so I was thinking of the KEF eggs 2005.2?? plus they're reasonable priced! But am I limiting the amps potential?

Can someone please help - I'm planning to audition the kit before I buy, but I would appraciate suggestions so that I do not get sucked into sales man jargon when looking to buy.

The £2,000 Pioneer amp is really designed to be used for much better speakers than the KEF Eggs and I would suggest that if you like the Eggs you think of buying something much cheaper to drive them with, like a Denon 38** or similar.

EDIT If your budget for amp and speakers was £2,800 I would be inclined to swap the budget around completely and spend £800 on an amp like the Denon anyway with the £2,000 being spent on the speakers.

Thanks Ian,

I had a feeling that it was case!!

With this in mind, what would be ideal speakers for the ax10, within a reasonable price?

last part of the jigsaw!!

EDIT - just saw your reply Ian, what £2k speakers are there that are not too bulky?

how about the Kef 5005s or the new Monitor Audio Radius series. The Eclipse is better than the Eggs and funkier to look at.
What about Castle, they do a nice package.

Agree with Ian, the Eggs wouldn't do the amp justice. Find a good dealer and see if you can try different sets at home.
