I’ve just bought a TR1000 and I need advice on what loadspeakers I should buy. I don’t play on very high volume.

What do you recommended?

Radionette TK400? 12S? 

Tandberg TL2520?

I think all those will be fine, also the larger Tandberg range would be a good combination, TL3520, 5010 and 5020. A vintage Seas model like a kit 503 or that Dynaco A25 clone would probably be good.
Like I wrote in another post, I was really impressed with the Seas kit for the Dynaco A25 model.

I am interested to hear if someone combined it with modern speakers.
I think if you don't mind spending some dough, high end speakers like Sonus Faber would be nice too. Can be bought used for 500 euro or so, and up, depending on the model of course.

The new Wharfedales, forgot the model, got very good reviews. Steve Guttenberg, "the Audiophiliac" likes them and reviewed them.

What about Seas Hifi 30? There is a pair for sale in Norway now 🙂

@steinerikhanssen That might be a good combination. I love the vintage Seas speakers, have quite a few of them!

Hi!

Don't underestimate the smallest TL speaker, TL 1520. I have a TR1000 myself and I must say that when I played the TR 1000 with a pair of the small TL 1520 I was overwhelmed. It played with much more depth than I had anticipated. With smaller amps this speaker behaves thinner in the sound and without liveliness. Used with TR 1000 it sounds really good. I will recommend you try this small speaker, especially if space is an issue.

I might try that. Would like to have a set of TL1520s in stock anyway. Now I use a set of Patos B300s on the TR1000 and they are great. I really like the sound of those Patos'.

I am listening right now to my TR1000.

I  drive Jamo J 101 speakers, 3 way, 60 watt

Cheap speakers to buy in Holland, got 3 pairs

I like this combination very much., old speakers , think around 1975 -1980, very clean , clear and open sound, can handle each kind of music from classic to heavy metal.

Always good sound, especially for the TR 10xx series and Huldra 9, very good combo, magic....

Unbeatable

Never- disappointing speakers Jamo J 101

Also have Thiel CS 2.2, great speakers also, much expensive compared to Jamo J101.

Still Jamo 101 wins from Thiel ( to my ears)

Regards Piet

How do you like your TR 1000????

It is one of my favourite Tandbergs, together with my  Huldra 9.

Very open, clear sound, different from the 20xx series, even different from 1040 and 1055
