audio note an speakers
My room is also highly reflective, both front and back wall lots of glass. I love my Emerald Physics 3.4s are truly amazing, There is also a version of it adding a 15" and another with 2 @ 15". If you're patient they come up from time to time. Very efficient, open baffle. See my Virtual Systems for a picture: scroll down to the bottom of any forum page, or click on my UN/Avatar
Please take this advice with a grain of salt. But I’ve heard the Lintons a couple of times. My impression was that my Vandersteen 1ci’s did everything the Lintons did but better. But those are two good speakers to put on your audition list.
I should add that I heard these speakers in two separate rooms with different gear driving both. I believe they were using the Rogue Pharoah to drive the Lintons. They were very pleasant sounding.
One more thing to add, I know you said you listen at relatively low volumes, but I’ve cranked the Vandys to ridiculously high volumes at times and they hold together. I’m not sure the same can be said about the Lintons. Also I felt the Vandy’s had more “meat on the bone.” Not sure how to translate that into audiophile terms.
@audionoobie my room is 20x15ft. I like what you’re saying about the Vandersteens, and they’re a good price. Their looks are so-so, but I think the Linton’s are kind of hideous!
I also have a KEF KC62 sub that I'll be using.
