I have a similar problem. I am currently in a temporary home while our new home is being built. My large system is in storage and I downsized quite a bit. I'm currently using my CD source equipment (my turntable is in storage), my preamplifier, but also decided to go with tubes for a small system. I'm using Cary 40M Signature monoblocks with Red Rose R-3 speakers. I listen to mostly jazz, classical and vocals. It's a very satisfying system, but obviously doesn't and never will have the authority that my larger system has (I'm looking forward to getting it back). It is however very impressive how well and how large the soundstage is given the small size of the Red Rose speakers. You may also find it interesting that the bass drivers are made by Dynaudio (2 per speaker isobarik loaded).
