I really love my current speakers, Spendor BC1, but they are paired with my vintage Sony TA-F6B integrated amp which pushes out 100watts and the BC1 don’t handle that sort of power well.

I’m wondering what other vintage speaker I could use with the Sony that would give the performance of the BC1 and is in a similar price bracket but with a better capacity for handling power.

Floor standers or stand mount, my room is a pretty standard space, 11 x 15, speakers in a bay window playing down the length of the room.

Recommendations welcome.

Thanks.

I would change your amp, good in its day, but much better available now

Appreciate that but budget is a big factor. I know low power tubes may work but i’ve not had great experience with valve gear over the years.

I guess from what you're saying that you mean you want speakers that can do higher SPL, as it's always good to use a higher powered amp than the speakers can handle to avoid clipping - but that's subject to not turning the volume up higher than the speakers can handle.

If your looking for vintage then maybe JBLs and bigger tannoys are the sort of thing you're looking for.
