Hi Folks,
I am newbie audiophile on unfortunately a shoe string budget. So I know right away that limits the possibilities regarding my question. I am curious for your recommendations for high efficiency speakers for the budget constrained. My current system is:

-Antique Sound Labs tube amp (5 or 15 watt option)
-Pioneer PL518 turntable
-Bellari tube phono preamp
-Luxman CD Player

Yes, as you can tell it is a budget system. Though the influence of the tubes help to produce a pretty nice sound. The room that my system is in is pretty small (15 x 25) and I mostly use the turntable for classics or jazz.

Appreciative for any of your thoughts or suggestions.

What speakers are you running right now and how do they sound on the ASL? Which option do you prefer 5 or 15 watts? Obviously 15 watts can make a large difference in the acceptable speakers.

What's the budget?

For around $300, I'd go with a vintage pair of Klipsch Heresy on ebay.
