Hi Chaps - I have just completed a scratch-built Mullard 5/20 stereo amp c/w Stereo Pre-amp (dual EF86). The thing sounds absolutely brilliant compared to my Arcam Alpha Tranny amp. The problem is that it now shows up the limitation of my speakers (a pair of 25 year-old Mission floor-standers - sorry I don't know the model number). The bass response of the Missions is great but middle and top-end are rather 'fluffy'. The 5/20 drives the speakers incredibly easily. Any recommendations for a pair of floor-standers up to circa £700.00 for this application ?

Cheers,

Hi,

Are you looking to DIY, or store bought?

If DIY, how skilled are you with wood?
(can you just do simple boxes, or can you do the math and make a MLTL blindfolded?)

Cheers!

Hi - no I've built speakers before and don't feel inclined to do it again thus I want to purchase ready-made speakers.

Cheers,

OK, then I suggest checking out some Klipsch.

I had a listen to a few at the local A/V store and they were the only ones that didn't make me want to barf :D

Cheers!
