Thanks for the midnight reply - the room is roughly 16 x 14 with an 8 foot ceiling. The system is setup centered on the long wall and the seating position is floated in the room allowing for a wall of floor to ceiling bookcases and a walkway behind the couch. Currently the bass reinforcement loudspeaker is on the left wall about 4' from the corner.
The equipment chain is: Krell SACD standard --> Krell KAV280p --> ASL Hurricane DT --> Linn Ninka. Power is conditioned by a Audio Power Power Pack 5. Speaker cables and amplifier interconnects are Sonic Euphoria Supremes, and Krell interconnects are balanced Transparant Audio Musiclink Plus. Power cords are also from Transparant Audio.
This is one of my primary critical listening systems, where I often spend a couple of hours at a time enjoying music fairly loud. Rock, Jazz, Country, Folk/Blue-Grass, Blues - I'm all over the map. The only shortcoming of this system in my opinion now is the bass reproduction. The Ninkas don't dig very deep, though what they do cover, they seem to cover really well. The subwoofer on the side gives me the low bass energy in the room - but I can definitely tell when the subwoofer kicks in, and I feel the energy in my feet through the floor and furniture instead of in my chest. I'm looking for a more cohesive presentation of full range - that will still fit in the room and closer to 5k than 10k. When I say fit in the room - I mean that the speakers shouldn't be too much more than about 40" tall, nor more than about a foot wide or two feet deep.
