Bookshelf speakers for vintage Pioneer SA-7700 amp
« on: March 27, 2021, 09:34:59 PM »
Hi folks,

Due to some home remodeling I'm looking to "downsize" my speakers from vintage (1970's) Pioneer CS-901's to much smaller (and modern) bookshelf speakers.  Would appreciate any recommendations for use with my Pioneer SA-7700 amp and Pioneer PL-51 turntable.  What speakers can handle what the SA-7700 cranks?   Looking for speakers that won't break the bank as they'll only get occasional use.

Thanks!

I have a pair of Paradigm Atom V2 that I'm not using.   I would let them go cheap for local cash pick up, as I don't really want to bother with shipping.   That's why I asked where you are.
