Decisions on standmounts: ATC, Dynaudio, ProAc, Sonus Faber


I’m considering the following speakers models:
ATC SCM19 V2
Dynaudio Contour S1.4
ProAc Tablette 10 Signature
Sonus Faber Sonetto II

Currently I’m listening to a pair of Wharfedale Denton 80th Anniversarry, everything so musical and well done with this speakers, it sound sweet smooth engaging if powerd by a Class D Audio SDS-470C with upgraded power supply, it sound near to neutral with very accurate dimensional Hi-Fi details if powerd by an NAD M22 v2 power amp. Having said that, I would like to have another set of speakers to play with, most probably I would something that sound balanced from top to bottom, while not too clinical analytical or too lush warm sounding to begin with. For critical listening, usually I’m using the Sennheiser HD 600, source signal from Fostex HP-A3 DAC/preamp. I will save a FLAC file if i like/love a track, then I will also convert it to mp3 vbr0 as another copy for car playback.

@twoleftears Spendor Classic 100 of course would an ideal end game choice for pure music HiFi listening speakers, reality is out of my budge a lot haha, the bookshelf Classic 3/1 I would assume is big enough for me.
I ended up buying the Graham Audio LS 5/9 after hearing the Harbeth 30.1, A speaker I had been longing for, for many years.
I like the midrange better on the Graham’s, feels more balanced to me and the bass is more exciting I feel.
@gryphongryph The Graham is a British traditional speakers which sound forgiving for old school music too right?
While the speakers are very revealing, they also present the music in a way that most recordings sound listenable, I can listen for hours on hours without any fatigue, they are very musical, but the most outstanding thing about them, is the way one can pick a instrument and follow it trough the melody and still hear all the melody at the same time, and one does not need to concentrate when doing this, it just comes natural.
They of course have the famous bbc bass hump, but it works very well, giving the music a nice foundation, the bass is very good, but falls of at 50hz or a bit lower, depending on room they are in.
The speakers excels on Classical, small, but also large assembly works very well, violins and piano sound great, Jazz also work unbelievable well, so well, that it has made me listen to more and more jazz.
I am surprised how well it can play Blues, a favorite of mine, also if a room is not too large, it can play Rock and Pop music just fine, although if you listen more to heavier rock/punk, metal, then I would probably look elsewhere, or get a sub or two.
Quested v3110 has it all. End of game.
