since i've left this industry, i've sorta fallen behind on what's new and good out there, which is why i'm posting here.
i currently have a set of the boston pro 6.53's, and while they sound good i'm just trying to simplify perhaps just for the sake of change. my last component set was the boston Z6's, so you know roughly what i've been dealing with the past few years. i currently am running my mids through an old school ppi a404 amplifier, though that may take a seat in the closet here when i change out the speakers for an alpine pdx amp.
what i'm looking for is something with a very strong midbass, great midrange and smooth tweets. everything from hearing the string bass sing to hearing the loud
'snap' on the snare drum. i listen to a lot of classic rock, classical, salsa, and basically anything chesky releases. i am super hyper-**** about how my setup sounds. i have a very high reference level to compare to the sound i'm trying to achieve. price isn't really that important, but no i don't plan on spending 2 grand on a pair of speakers.
just trying to see if some of you nuts have any suggestions as to what is out there now that will give me what i'm seeking. some other speakers i've heard and liked besides the Z's are the dynaudio's, a set of the focal utopia's, and the jl zr's (though the boston Z's are way better than the zr's).
some i really don't like, anything infinity, quarts, the kenwood xxvwhatever the anniversery speakers are (besides being waaaaay overpriced and out of their league in that price range). dislike alpine speakers, etc.
thanks for readin my ramblin, any info appreciated.
