    I’ve come across a pair of model two-twos and before I do anything, just wanted to ask opinions.
    Room 4.3 * 3.8m. Amp Rega Brio 50 WPC.
    Any things I should look for in particular? Any weak points on these? Any common faults/items needing repairs?
    Replacement parts/driver availability?
    Thanks so much for any help if only to say ‘they’re not for you’.
    Urgent PM sent,!

    Have you seen the Chris Rogers TLs in the classifieds? Not a million miles away from you and the perfect chance to dip your toe in the TL water, if not maybe find your keeper speakers.

    I have a pair of KEF Reference 104aB, and can drive them with an 8 watt class A Pass ACA to reasonable listening levels, so I'm sure the Brio would be plenty for those if you could find a pair, I would avoid the non aB version though as it is not as robust with higher power amps.

    many thanks for this.
    The 104ab is one of the speakers previously recommended and it’s on my list of possibles.
