    I feel upgradeitus coming along and I havent even bought my speakers yet. With budget of say £800 for floorstanders, centre & sub. Can anyone recommend a combi? Ive started thinking about used instead of new speakers to stretch to some more quality units.

    What would you buy for your system with this kind of budget & why?

    Yes I'm digging for some help! :thumbsup:

    Quad L range work really well with that combo.
    Do you have to have floorstanders?

    I was thinking floorstanders only for stereo music without sub. Quad L12 are an interesting read but would require sub for music? Their description sounds like studio monitors which may be another choice?

    I heard Kef Q7's which were great, but I can get used KEF Ref Two for less...

    Why not floorstanders?

    Thanks,
    B.

    Personally I prefer a decent book shelf to an OK pair of floorstanders.
    The Quad 11L's are still one of my favourite speakers at any price, they work with systems that are far more expensive than they are and really help some sharper sounding systems sound alot more expensive than they actually are.

    The Kef ref. twos would be a good buy, and if you can find a kef 200c or a Kef 23F alog with some kef rears you would have a very nice system for silly money.

    Speakers are the one thing that can be a genuine bargin, and one thing I would have trouble buying new unless they are a genuine bargin, which I would consider the Quads to be. There are very few speakers I would put in my system, but the Quads are one of them.

    Thanks for the opinoins. I have now heard the Quad 21L's and they are very musical indeed. Very good quality build too. I've got 2 sellers of Kef model 3's at the moment both askin same price funnily enough... Need to check these out when i get a free day...

    Cheers,
    B.
