Sorry,need info on Dunlavy again Aletha vs SC-IV

I am sorry to bring this Dunlavy topic again, but I really could not find any other usefull info other than from you people at audiogon (thanks so much).
My plan to get the SC-IVs become a problem as I only have a small room of 10' x 10'. However, as I really want to get a Dunlavy stuffs, now I am considering to get the Aletha instead (smaller dimension than the Sc-IVs). Is the Alethas share the similar superiority as the SC-IVs in term of soundstaging, resolution, etc? Will the Alethas still to big for my room? For the same price of $2400, will the Alethas more worth it to buy than the Sc-IV?
I understand that there are many choices of great speakers in the range of $2500 as you guys recommended (Vandys, Thiel, VR, Duntech, etc). But, it's very unfortunate for me to live in Indonesia that have a very limited choices of used speakers. My choices right now are only the SC-IV and the Alethas, besides the Vandy 2ce ($850) which I am consider too old (the sig version has been sold). I may get another choices, but I am not sure how long again I have to wait....
Once again, my system:
Krell KSA250
Krell KSP-7B
AudioNote DAC2
Jadis JD-3 CD
Cardas Quadlink speaker cables
Nordost Blue Heaven interconnects
Thank you so much in advance for any inputs.

I still think the Alethas will overload your room--they have a smaller footprint and are a little more room friendly, but a square room like yours creates many acoustical resonances and nodes. I would follow Sean's advice from your prior post. Dunlavys are excellent speakers, and each of their models was designed for successively larger listening spaces. Your room, you might be able to use SC-1s (if you want Dunlavys) and a good quality subwoofer.
