|System Goals/Comments:||• Priced between $1000.00 – 2000.00 for the Speakers|
• Tread the line (that we have just made up!) between our open bias here at I.M.H.O. for neutral and transparent over “musical” and forgiving…. but at the same time being able to represent a full range of two channel music, from current “popular music” to jazz, classical and acoustic, without the aid of a subwoofer.
• Be acceptable in both size and practicality in an “average” to small living room. It doesn’t matter if the speakers are monitors or floor standing, but they should not take up too much real estate physically (in having a large “footprint”), or in orientation (i.e. requiring placement of out into the middle of the room to achieve full effect or necessitating major sound proofing/room modifications).
• Able to be powered by modest equipment, therefore not requiring $5000.00 “boutique” ancillary equipment to sound decent!
