As much as I love my Kenwood KL-999Z speakers, they're just too old and too big, and they're taking up real estate in a small bedroom, and my massive 90s Pioneer AV reciever just isn't getting the job done. Once tax season comes for me, I'll be spending roughly $300-500 on a new speaker system and/or receiver. I've got no clue what to go for, but I'm just trying to look for bookshelf speakers with a rich but crystal clear sound, detail and the ability to be cranked loud when needed to is what I need. Good bass and high end response, and a phono stage that can handle virtually any phono cart, including my AT-440MLb, which I may change to a Shure, but I'm still on the fence about it. I've been looking at Klipsch, but they just seem pretty expensive, and I need some options, whether it be powered or regular speakers. Any help would be appreciated.
