Probably belongs in the general advice thread but I figured you guys would see it better here and others would be able to learn from the advice you folks give out. I am looking for some kind of guide or general guidance on how to make that transition from the high end headphones to the world of speakers. Do speakers have a certain sound like headphones do? I really love my HD650's to no end and would like some speakers to use with that same sound. I know that you need a receiver to power most of them. Do these receivers have a unique sound like some of the AMP and DACS that headphones use? Are there power requirements that I need to meet like headphones? Is there a system where I can make incremental step upgrades? I know that these things get really expensive and can probably not afford to go all out on a full system. I know there are different types of speakers like the little bookshelf ones and there are ones that are the size of a grown man. Again thanks for your responses.
