Opinions: Joseph Audio Pulsar vs Dynaudio Conficence C1 vs Totem Element Fire vs ?????
Seeking opinions on these speakers or suggestions for others.... Recently moved, likely for the long term (down sized) and my previous floor standers just overloaded my new, smaller room despite trying some bass traps, positioning, etc. The room is 11 X 14 X 8 with a cement floor. As much as I would like to listen to each of them it is not likely to happen. I live in west Texas and the nearest dealers are 350 miles away. Joseph Audio doesn't have a dealer in Texas, they Dynaudio dealer doesn't stock the C1, and the Totem dealer is a home theatre place that doesn't have anything to demo and doesn't seem to have any real interest in 2 channel audio.Given these obstacles, I am looking for your comments and advice on these or other speakers. I am in my mid 50s and listen mostly to 70s rock, singer/songwriter acoustic stuff,some blues, some big band music, but very little classical music (mostly small ensemble type stuff, no orchestral). My equipment is a Hegel H360 integrated, a Pro-ject 9.2 table with Grace F9E ruby, and a Berkeley Audio Design Alpha USB/Alpha DAC s2 driven by a PC based server using JRiver. I don't need huge bass, but it's important to me that voices are right and acoustic guitars and cymbals sound right. I like the presentation a little more front and center, but not fatiguing. If you can give me any help that would be great. Once I get enough info maybe I can make a trip somewhere that has a couple of things to listen to. Oh, and budget is up to $7500. Thanks in advance
