    My first thought when seeing this thread was those MA952s. Reckon you wouldn't go wrong with them. And Monitor Audio always finished them well, so a bit of WAF too

    Hi
    thanks for the replies i am i right in thinking that the r952,s would have a brighter sound than the other 2 choices, and any idea if the r952 would be good at lower listening levels.
    regards

    Hi Greg,

    My Ruarks are sold sorry.

    Check out Rega R3’s, not on your short list but I rate them.

    It is easier to seek forgiveness than to ask permission

    Rules are meant for the obedience of fools and the guidance of wise men
