    Default Speakers advice please

    Hi All,

    I'm looking to replace my B&W Dm2. I have the Celestion Ditton 66 in mind but I'm open to other ideas.

    I hope you can help.

    Thank you
    Julie

    Any particular reason why you want to change? Only curious here, as I would say if they are working fine, and you otherwise like the sound of them, keep them and enjoy them! I think in some ways I am becoming a tight wad in my aging years...

    I don't think I will ever be able to sell them - we have a connection but I bought a quad 606 with the 44 preamp a couple of weeks ago and feel I need a different set of speakers.

    Nothing wrong with that "connection", I too have had a few of those over the course of time! As to the Ditton's and your new Quads, I will leave that for others to comment on, as I really have no clue how that combo would be! Have fun and enjoy your tunes and new gear!

    I know nothing of Ditton 66s - however there are many on here who like them particularly "the all seeing eye" I'm sure they will respond - maybe you could put Ditton 66 in the title

    This might help

    I'm not 100% sure about the Ditton 66s. I'm looking for people to give me advice on the best speakers to use with the quad. it would be great help.

    Thanks

    Normally you'd pick the speakers to match the room and then the best amplifier that can drive them with the sound you like in your budget.

    What size room have you got?

    The room is 4m x 3m. It is small but it is not forever
