    You want fairly high efficiency for the 845s if you can. I've heard the Omegas (well the Alnico Monitor, i.e. single driver version of the one you pictured) and it's absolute heaven. That version would basically cover the rock genre that the older versions were challenged with (and high energy classical). I think you would be hard pressed to go past those with a sweet single-ended tube amp, especially for the price.

    I can only imagine. I love Alnico drivers and would love to hear the Omegas. Thank you.

    Has anybody heard the Trenner and Friedl Sun? Amazing review in the latest Stereophile. Even smaller than the Harbeth p3esr and designed for easy placement. Reviewer says it is the best standmount he has ever heard....

    I've never heard a Trenner & Friedl speaker that isn't wonderful and the Sun's are no exception but for approximately $1,000 more I would go for the Art. The Art is also diminutive in size but plays louder and in a wider frequency range.

    Re: What's your favorite small or bookshelf speaker?

    thanks, RDS. I am also interested in the Art. I was assuming in my very small 9 by 11 room, the Suns might be better. I also thought coaxial driver might be better for creating a wider sweet spot/listening off axis? How is either speaker at low volumes?

    Have you heard the Legacy Audio Studio HD's? Impressed me enough that I bought 2 pairs to go with 2 systems that I'm putting together....Check out their website.
