What 2 channel Amp would you Buy for $6k?
My opinion: Get a Decware Zen Triode $1300 + invest the other $4700. YMMV 
GoldenEar vs Dynaudio vs Nola vs ProAc vs Everything else.
My biased opinion is:1. Go tube and take a long look at Decware. I switched to Decware and haven’t looked back. I started with the MiniTorii and upgraded to the Torii Jr. Only reason for the upgrade was to have a bit extra headroom. $2500. However...

@vermeer my room is 140 sq ft, or 1375 cu ft. (11 x 12.5 x 10) -- a cube is less than ideal, however, listening near-field is actually sublime. Take a look at the golden ratio on Cardas Audio: http://www.cardas.com/room_setup_near_field.phpHere is...

@willemj you're right about too much bass and room modes, however room treatment will be far better than DSP EQ. I prefer the least amount in the signal path as possible.
