Well Studio monitors speakers sound differant than Hi Hi speakers which is why i don't use computer speakers as i find missing sounds even more so in the 100-400Hz area of sound.
But like i said it depends on what you like. typically Technics for classical music but like SONY more upbeat type music and TEAC for fast paced music as they had a tighter base that kepted up.
I hate blobby sounding base lol. And i love a base that will travel up\down though a room. Thats why i regreated selling my old tannoys back from 1983 NOW they were what real speakers were about with there white cone with rubber reflex and a unique tweeter( which was used a lot back then) which was made of cloth .
But as i keep saying depends on what you like you might even like a flat sound or a blobby kinda base or even a sharp sound. I my self did not have the option were i live now but if you can get out and check some hifi gear out DO IT and make a day of it. Well thats if you can afford it and all.
