CRT’s + Magnetically Shielded Speakers

I put together a video, in order to warn people against putting non-shielded speakers (or magnets! ;p) next to CRT displays.  I also show speakers that are safe to use ranging from cheap, to what I’d consider “high end”…for me at least.  Unfortunately, it’s really hard to find brand new speakers that are still shielded, so MAKE SURE TO TEST YOURSELF, regardless of what manufacturer specs or the sale page says!  I’ve bought (and returned) three pairs of speakers listed as shielded that were not!  Here’s links to some of the stuff I tested, as well as stuff other people have claimed to be shielded – affiliate links where available:

My favorite 2.0 combo:
Ascend Acoustics CBM-170 SE:
NAD C 316BEE Amp:

Yamaha MSP5 Studio Monitor:

Here’s stuff that other people have tested, but I have not confirmed myself.  Heck, even stuff I checked myself might change someday, so always test yourself to be sure!!!

True audiophiles will enjoy reading this, written by the same person who make the speakers I loved:

…and just in case anyone was curious, here’s the VERY awesome speakers I showed at the beginning that ARE NOT SAFE TO USE WITH CRT’S, but everyone seems to think they’re more than worth the price:
