I just recently decided to put together a decent, non-HT stereo system. It will most likely go into a smallish 11x12 room. My receiver is a NAD C720BEE, my CD player is a NAD C521BEE, and I'm getting a Pro-ject Debut III turntable. As you can see, I'm trying not to spend a lot of money without sacrificing too much.
I live in an area where high-end stereo stores are few and far between, and their selections are minimal. That left me to purchase speakers basically sight unseen and untested. I have been combing thru hundreds of speaker reviews for the past 2 days. I was set on getting Paradigm Reference Studio 20 v.3s, but I can't find them anywhere. I found a good deal on Polk Audio LSi9s and on impulse I decided to jump on them. It's a done deal.
I now have a little buyer's remorse as I dug a little deeper after the purchase and saw people saying that they were power hungry and would not match up well with the music I like - jazz and blues, some classical.
Are these folks right? I do not know as it will be a couple weeks before I get my receiver, and the speakers need to be shipped.
Thanks in advance.
