Speaker gurus: Where to start researching everything 'speaker'?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

 So we're looking at houses and I'm looking to move over into the speaker world. I have been dumping all my discretionary $$ into headphones and headphone amps because we're in an apartment. Now, I'd like to shift over into the speaker world. Unfortunately, I don't know much about speakers or speaker amps. What resources/forums do you recommend?? I'm looking to start my journey with a pair of KEF LS50s and build a system from there.

AVS is to home audio as Head-Fi is to headphones. Start with their speaker forum. You might discover alternatives to the LS50s by asking for recommendations there. smily_headphones1.gif

My advice would be to select the house first and determine the room in the house where the speakers would go before deciding on a particular speaker. Results vary greatly based on the size and dimensions of the space.

If you're considering vintage equipment (and you should) Audiokarma is an amazing forum, pay them a visit.
