Suri, remember the conversation we had about such speakers
My neighbour had such speakers around 15 years ago and it came with an integrated amplifier and a tape-deck from the same series. They were too big to be called bookeshelves and too fat and short to be called a floor-stander. I used to be a teen ager than and my memory of these was similar to what you have mentioned. These were extremely sensitive and the 12 inch woofer would go really low. Anything above 10'clock postiion would fill his room (12x10 ft IIRC)and not so warm. Those days, favourite test track was Enigma - Mea Culpa
. The bass used to be very clear at low volumes and treble was sharp and metallic.
I may not like them today but still have fond memories of these. Strangely, I can still remember the sound signature of these speakers. Other similar speakers that comes to my mind are Sansui and Cosmic. These were in use mostly in cd->tape recording shops and invariably the shops used to have the combination mentioned below:
Technics Double Cassete Deck
If they did not have atleast 2 of the above, I would not risk giving my specially sourced TDK-AD60 tapes for recording to them:lol:. Towards the end of my tape days, I used to go to Shankar Audio in Malleshwaram 8th Cross and sometimes to Bobby Anand of Rhythms (St.Marks Road). Anybody in Bangalore remembers?
I'll stop now as I am going nostalgic and OT
