Alright guys I have thoroughly enjoyed my headphone setup and now want to get a decent budget speaker system for my bedroom. I have a MHDT Balanced Havana Dac that is connected to my RSA Apache which will be used as a pre-amp. I am looking to get some passive bookshelf speakers that would provide me a warm and detailed sound. My budget for the amp and speakers is anywhere between $500-$800. I have looked for some speakers on Audiogon and found an Energy RC-10 selling for $250, B&W 686 for $400. I used to own a pair of Ascend Acoustics CBM-170SE but they did not provide enough punch and depth. Any other recommendations?
I found a few people selling mid-1990s Rotel Integrated and Power amps for $150-$300. Are these worth buying?
