    Hi

    I'll appreciate some suggestion for an acceptable budget speakers to tag with a Tag Mclaren 100x5R?
    I got a Tag Mclaren recently that has been stored in the box for quite some time and I would like to buy some "budget" speakers to try it as I can't afford the the right speakers for it right now.


    Thanks

    Are you looking at new or second hand?
    What's your budget?

    I'm looking for second hand and I'm currently looking for some offers like jbl xti100 or some monitor audio silver 5i but I'm afraid that they are not good enough...

    What is your budget? Are you just looking for a pair of speakers for now?
    If budget is tight then get what ever you can afford. You may not get the best from the Tag with the speakers but it will not do any harm to the amp and they will do until you can afford the right speakers.
    If happy with secondhand then keep an eye out for PMC speakers secondhand. You may be able to pick up some of the older models like the GB1s etc. for a low price but will sound very good.

    You must have some idea of what you want to spend? Can you spend £5000? No? How about £1000? Maybe? How about £500/pr? You can't expect us to recommend speakers without a budget range.

    If your budget is £500 or higher, they you will have no problem finding very good NEW speakers. If it is less than £500/pr, perhaps Used in a option.

    Also Bookshelf or Floorstanding?

    Here is a very good bargain in a New speaker right now at a substantial discount -

    Tannoy Mercury V4i floorstanding - £269/pr (£400 retail) -

    Tannoy Mercury V4i Speakers (Pair) - Sugar Maple (B Grade)

    These speaker were originally £1800/pr now massively reduced -

    Mission SX4 Piano Black Floorstanding - £350/pr -


    Mission SX4 Piano Black Gloss Floorstanding Speakers (Pair) - Mission - AudioVisual Online - UK Home Cinema and Hifi Specialists

    Misson SX4 Cherry Floorstanding - £425/pr -

    Mission SX4 Piano Rosewood Lacquer Floorstanding Speakers (Pair) - Mission - AudioVisual Online - UK Home Cinema and Hifi Specialists

    The Mission speakers were orignally £1300/pr -

    Misson SX3 Cherry Floorstanding - £375/pr -

    Mission SX3 Cherry Veneer Floorstanding Speakers (Pair) - Mission - AudioVisual Online - UK Home Cinema and Hifi Specialists

    Also bargains -

    Wharfedale Diamond 230 Walnut Floorstanding - £399/pr -

    Wharfedale Diamond 230 Walnut Pearl Floorstanding Speakers (Pair) - Wharfedale - AudioVisual Online - UK Home Cinema and Hifi Specialists

    Thank you very much for your effort to show me some examples. I really appreciate it.
    Well I said I don't have a defined budget because probably I'll not buy them until the beginning of next year unless I found a awesome opportunity and that's why I come hear and asked for suggestions so I can keep and eye on opportunities.

    Anyway I would like to buy 2 floorstanding for the front and 2 bookshelfs for the back for less than 1000, (yes I'm not in UK).

    Once again, thank you all for your time.

    P.S.: Those two sites have great deals I'm going to investigate if and how can I buy outside of UK.
