    Very interesting idiosyncratic looking things!

    A pair of Snell J might fit the budget if you like that presentation, and fit handily in corners or against walls. For more 'in yer face' a pair of AE1 monitors will deliver, not sure on used price at the moment though. I agree with the Royd suggestions, always a fun listen irrespective of model, and some of the new Wharfedale models are well in budget and very decent as well IMO.

    I've had a few AE1's in the past. Good speakers but can get a bit tiring after a while.

    I quite like the Audio Note AN-J. Never heard the Snell stuff. I'd expect the presentation to be fairly similar though.

    Sapphires are bright / mid-forward and quite thin IMO. Very raw speakers. The Sorcerer SE and particularly the RR3 have a smoother and deeper, meatier balance.

    I got on fairly OK with Minstrels. But never heard the SE version.

    Dear friends,

    Sorry to brother again. I halted this purchase while I did not move into my new home.

    Now that I have 50 sq meters of living room to fill with good sound I am back on track.

    As anyone heard the new CA a61/81?

    Got an email from CA this morning mainly as I have a CXA60, the CXA61 and 81 have both got awards in WHF 2019 as best in their respective price categories. On the Cambridge website there’s a video interviewing a number of people after they auditioned them which is very positive.
