My experience with it is, the Usher 6391, be716, Kef R300, Polk LsiM703, Large Advent, JBL 4312, 4333A, B&W 602 and it make them sound a their best... My point is, that a proper reconditioned 2385 will do well with top quality speakers... The JBL 4311 and 12 are not my favorites speakers, but they do ok and some people really like them. So maybe they will work for you.What speakers do you recommend?
Look for the best speaker for your needs(size, budget, sound, aesthetics ) and the unit will perform extremely well. Remember that speakers opinions are like bellybutons (every one has one). Something like the usher audio be716 or those newer bookshelf speakers reviewed here (revel, purifi for example) will do great IMHO.
