Hi, while this upgrade won't be anywhere in the near future, I'm saving up for it and decided to put some thought in it before I get the money.
Currently I use 2*Yamaha HS80M, Adam Sub8, HRT MusicStreamer II (DAC)
While I have heard that room treatment is important, I don't mix at all and merely chose active monitors as I don't know anything about amps at all.
While I will definitely be moving before I upgrade, I am looking for speakers between 6"~8". I believe my bedroom will be too small for 9"+ speakers.
I can probably net a little cash from selling my current system, but would like to keep the Sub8 as it seems to be ideal for my room size
I'm imagining either a set of active monitors and sub with better DAC or even a passive setup. I'm not too sure if a passive setup is the way to go as I will be using this in a bedroom most likely smaller than 13' * 16'
I'm hoping the near-$6k budget is enough to find me a used setup that would cost at least $10k new, which I'd think is a good tipping point for a "decent budget" in audio
So, the requirements I'd like are listed below:
#1. Room size is small, so small speakers
#2. Must be easy to find (locally) used speakers as I buy most electronics used to save cash
#3. Lower limit budget $4k~ Upper limit $5.999k
#4. Perhaps an active setup due to limited space
#5. Hopefully can accommodate the Sub8 regardless of passive/active setup
What are your suggestions?
