Hi,
I'm trying to bring hi-fidelity to my small office - a 10' x 10' room. Becuase of the size, the speakers need to be wall mounted. I will be driving this with a 5 WPC McCormack MID (Micro Integrated Drive), a nice unit that requires efficient speakers. I'll be playing jazz (solely) at low to moderate volumes. Because of wall mounting, they will be a couple of inches or so from the wall.

Any suggestions?
Bob

Hi BobC,

Since you'll be driving speakers at low to moderate volumes, I'd suggest you get either the M3ti's or M22ti's, preferably the M22ti's because their sensitivity is 2 dB greater which, with your tiny amplifier, is significant. Either model has usable bass to 40 Hz (nothing below that). You can check out wall-mounting brackets at omnimount.com, vogelsusa.com or btech-usa.com.

By the way, about "requiring efficient speakers". No small ported or sealed hi-fi speakers are efficient. Only horn-loaded Klipschs, Tannoys and the like have high sensitivity but the trade-off is inaccurate colored sound and aggressive treble. However, as long as you are not trying for concert-hall levels, you should be ok, and tube gear tends to gradually "clip" with more tolerable distortion.

Regards,
