Monitors with big sound and deep bass
Buchardt s400 
Bass management with stand alone preamps

Axpona reviewers perceptions and reality
I wanted to hear the Buchardts but somehow got turned around and never found the room.s400’s or Spatial M3’s are top contenders to be my next speakers. I never made it to the Spatial room and have never heard them.
