looking for a stand mount speaker to match a s/s int amp.

Hello all  , happy to be back at this hobby.

Just acquired a Classe Cap 151 ( 150 watts at 8 ohms/ 225 at 4 ohms )

( Panasonic DVD-A ,Harmonic Technology Fantasy speaker wire & HT Truth Link I/C)

Looking a used stand mount speaker to match my amp , low volume listening a must .

This system stay in my 12 ' x 15' 1/2 room.

My budget is limited from $500 but can squeeze up to $800/1000

Here a few that  I like but never audition , so I am depending on your honest advise.

1. Nola boxer 2

2. Von Schweikert VR-1

3. Vienna Haydn Grand

4.open ...??

  A good sounding n musical speaker  can be driven with  my cap 151 & tube integrated amp

 in the near future. I listened below 9' 0 clock or 1/2 from zero , mostly at night time.

I thank you all in advance. pescolar

Picking speakers to match your amp?  Isn't that sorta like picking out a car to match the license plate holder screws?

I have Silverline Minuets and like them a lot. May be worth a listen if you have an opportunity.

A good point was brought up about changing to a tube amp, especially if the amp only generates a few watts. That move may limit your speaker options.

If you can, find a hifi store that has a customer service mentality and wants to help you get the best value for you. They may let you home audition some different models. You may ask for referrals online for stores in your area. 

Try to steer clear of jerk balls if you can, life's too short, and it won't be fun- unless you enjoy that kind of thing. 

Best regards-

I will not replace the classe amp, instead add a tube integrated to my system.

But one pair of speaker ,time to time listen with a tube or s/s amp.

If this the case, then strike off everything on your list and also what has been suggested so far. 

Time to start to auditioning speakers of higher impedance and sensitivity and find a pair to match the tube amp first.  Whatever you choose, your Classe will have no problems.  Good luck to you.

Last year I changed from my beloved Totem Fire monitors to a pair of Focal Sopra No2 floorstanders, after moving my system from our 13x24 living room, to my 24x26 "man cave".

I just happen to have the Totems up for sale on Audiogon now.  They are more expensive than the budget you quoted, but they are a wonderful pair of monitors.
