Hi FM's

I am looking to buy bookshelf speakers for front pair.Please suggest the models with very good audio quality in 25k.

My AVR is Pioneer 930k.I have also Boston Acoustics A 26 It is ok for movies but I am not satisfied on that output for music.

What about Polk RTI A3,KEF Q100(price don't know) and also inform the availability in Hyderabad.

Thanks in advance.

Look at Dali Zenzor to pair with your AVR, this combination works well. I am using Z3 with Pioneer VSX830K.
Zenzor 1 around 21K & Zenzor 3 around 28K.
Audition is the key!

Definitely Dali Zenser 3 is one of the best bookshelf speakers available below 30k. It musical also but Zenser seems to be on little brighter side, pairing it with Pioneer AVR may make sound signature more bright which you may not like as with BA A26. I will suggest you audition Wharfdale Diamond 225 or Polk RTiA 3 . Both are comparable to Dali Zenser 3 but have warmer sound signature which my very well suit to your AVR.

I auditioned rti a3 in Bangalore pro fx. Loved it. I haven't heard ba26 so I'm not sure how much better is a3. I think profx is there in hyd. Call their store they should be able to confirm if they have piece to audition

Profx have both polk and KEF. KEF starts at 40k. Out of budget for me so didn't check it

Yes A3 are fantastic speakers, they are known to go well with denon / marantz. Which kef did you listen to?

I am looking to replace my Polk Monitors with either rti A3, zensor 3 or kef q300.

It's available in usk electronics Somajiguda, Google for rest of the details. Even I'm looking for Dali Zensor audition in Hyderabad.
You'll need to bargain hard for discounts. Take your own Cds, files etc.

I am contacted that showroom person and asked 25-30k range speakers demo.But I think they have only very limited models demo in that range, even they don't have also Polk A3.

Go to Vector systems at jubilee Hills, they have a Heco German bookshelf speakers, they have much acclaimed B&W 685 (rated as one of the best bookshelf speakers by many)
Heco ~23k ( bargain further)
B&W ~ 42k
I couldn't justify the high price of B&W when I did A&B comparison. I've listened to A3s they're pretty bright, sound great with bollywood type of music. Update us with the results. I agree the USK aren't as friendly as they were earlier.

I don't know who has them, I'm also looking for Dali Zensor audition in Hyderabad.

Ok forget it now because of unavailability for audition. What is your opinion on POlk A3. Is the speakers are give crystal clear sound for music?
