In Reply to: RE: Vintage speaker for classical that does it all? posted by ph5y on April 09, 2017 at 13:25:55
I like many of the suggestions made but an obvious one would be Shahinians. The obelisk definitely has a slice of magic with classical music. Amazing bass for a little speaker. I find the omnidirectional approach well suited for classical.
Yes tyhe Obelisk is a good "does it all speaker - though because it is still available does it qualify as "vintage" I bought my pair in 1980 - sold for engagement ring money in 1982. Still married, Still remember excellent listening sessions (and parties) where the Shahinian's served up their "Polyradial" sound!

Totally forgot about this speaker. I would takes the Obelisks over the Maggie 1.6s. But I would stear clear of the Compass.
