G'day all, I've been having some 'fun' with large loudspeakers lately but for most of my hi fi life I've mostly used high quality bookshelf loudspeakers and I really like the sound of good quality bookshelf loudspeakers. I guess the only real 'penalty' is a lack of the lowest bass but on the positive side, I've always regarded the transient performance of bookshelf loudspeakers as their strongest point. I do have an active subwoofer to augment the bass on one of my bookshelf speaker systems, but a lot of the time it isn't really needed. The little bookshelf loudspeakers that I have in here are rated down to about only 60 hertz, but they still deliver a satisfying bass response. Is anybody else 'happy' with just bookshelf loudspeakers on their systems? Regards, Felix.
