I was thinking that this would be a good place to solicit recommendations from the experts. For my birthday last November, the wife bought me an Audio-Technica AT-LP-120 turntable and a pair of Creative Reference CR-3 speakers. I had gotten rid of most of my vinyl 25 years ago but I kept some of my rarer, higher-quality LP's. In the meantime, I have spent the past year scrounging used record stores, eBay, and Discogs for vintage vinyl. I've now got a total of about 300 LP's (at least 3x what I had a year ago). I try to buy only good stuff and I've got a number of Japanese pressings and MFSL albums. About a month ago, I sprung for an Ortofon Red cartridge and headshell. I have the turntable set up in a very small room - less than 10' x 10'. For my 60th birthday in a few weeks, my wife told me to go ahead and upgrade my system. She told me that I could spend up to $1000 total. I've done a far amount of research and I'm looking at the Onkyo TX-8140 receiver. It's around $300. It seems to have plenty of power - probably a good bit more than I need. And it has many very good reviews. I expect to use it almost exclusively for my vinyl. But I do have a Sirius/XM subscription in my truck. So I may use the receiver for that. Conventional radio? Probably never. So, what should I get for speakers? I'm not a professional and I'm not really an audiophile. But I appreciate good music and I like it with some punch. My collection is mostly 60s & 70s rock - lots of Beatles, Jethro Tull, Zeppelin, Floyd. Throw in some Allman Borthers, Cream, Deep Purple, Doors as well as blues bands like Savoy Brown and TYA. My head-banging days are behind me and my hearing is already well on its way to being shot. But I still like it loud. There seem to be lots of bookshelf speakers out there including some very good ones. But I really don't have the space for them. My CR-3's sit on the floor. So I'd prefer floor speakers. The Klepsch R-24F's look like they might work. I was originally looking at the 28's. But they're WAY too large for this small space. The Klepsch speakers are within my budget at around $250 each. What stinks is the fact that, in July, Amazon had them for $140 each which seems to have been a dynamite deal. Too bad that I missed out on that. I'm probably going to get a gazillion different opinions and that's OK. Thanks in advance for the advice!
