Good speakers for classical, lossless used with Onkyo amp & HRT Dac

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I just acquired an Onkyo A-9555 integrated amp and have an HRT Music Streamer II Dac.  Looking at different speakers generally in $300 to $500 price range.  Can pick up set of Wharfedale Diamond 10.1's for $280/pair shipped.  Got great review in Stereophile.

 

Looking maybe at Klipsch RB-51 II speakers.  Between $320 and $420 a pair.

 

Never heard Klipsch but have heard the Wharfedales.

Try to win this bid. (Infinity Beta speakers + receiver).

If they are in superb condition, go for them or just grab a new pair. The Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 loudspeakers are very spacious and have great instrument separation which is perfect for classical music. They are also warm in sound which is much more of a pro than a con as the Klipsch loudspeakers lean more to a brighter sound, which is not really enjoyable for classical music (in my opinion). 

 

 

Destroysall.
