Spendor speakers
I have both the Spendor Classic 1/2 and 2/3e speakers. Both have a mid-range to die for, with the 1/2's having a slightly deeper bass but, as others have said, bass is not why you buy the Spendor Classic speakers. New Spendor 2/3's sell for about ...

Excellent company; wonderful customer service. 
3 way vs. 2 way
If you think more drivers equal better sound, try the Omega Super 3 XRS single-driver speakers, especially in your small listening room. They are amazing, especially with tube amplification. If these don't float your boat, stick with a 2-way becau... 
Best Chicago area HIFI shop?

The Best Midrange in the World Right Now

The Best Midrange in the World Right Now

Best speaker for small room
Some suggestions:Make sure the speakers are front ported and not rear ported.Look at 2 way speakers; the drivers integrate better in a small room.Triangle, Spendor, Harbeth, Sonus Farber, Opera ... there are a ton of mini-monitors and small floors...

What Cartridge Would Make the Best Match?
Thanks, everyone.I've decided to go with the Sumiko Blackbird. It has enough bite to bring my jazz LPs to life with the other components in my system (i.e., my EAR phono stage, UNICO amplifier, and Spendor speakers) tempering any edge or brightnes...
