Do I go from a Primaluna HP Integrated to Schiit Freya+ and a pair of Aegir Amps?
This seems more like a sideways move to me. A few gains will be had due to going to separates but that primaluna is a great integrated so I don't know if it will be a big improvement as much as a different sound. If you are trying to get as much p... 
Help looking for dynamic warm romantic sound with detail
First of all, I do not think you need tubes to get what you are looking for. I agree with some of the other comments... B&W CM10 probably won't fit the bill for what you are looking at. Throw as much of your money as you can at your speakers a... 
Dynaudio Special 40 vs Focal 1008 be vs Other
I owned the Focal 1008be for a brief period... kept them for a couple of weeks and ran them 24/7 but they were like icepicks stabbing my ears. I know for a fact it wasn't my gear that affected the sound. Easily the least enjoyable speaker I have y... 
Speakers for a small room
@daveyf I thought it was decent sized as well but there is something about it that doesn't agree with me. I a currently looking at some special 40's and a pair of t5i's. Time will tell what I settle [email protected]: I will give the digital EQ readings ... 
Speakers for a small room
I am digging up this old thread of mine to post an update. I have come to the conclusion that my room nodes are severely affecting my enjoyment and resulting in some compromises. When my speakers are brought out into the room (approx 4 ft or so) I... 
ps audio directstream junior discontinued?
Thanks for the heads up. I have been eyeing one of these for a while now... Maybe I can grab one at a steep discount.  
What are the weak points of Pass amps and pre-amps ?
To OP. I have an xp12 pre feeding my xa30.8 into my tannoys. IMO tannoys and pass labs are a perfect match because Nelson Pass voices his amps using tannoys. This is the one time that I do not want more from my set up. The realism and ease to the ... 
Speakers for a small room
@bigddesign3 My current speakers are actually small towers (Tannoy Precision 6.2 LE) so I am sure towers work in my space but I know for a fact that not all towers will. EG. the Focal Aria 936's did not work in my space, they needed more room. I w... 
Speakers for a small room
@dcevans my space is a dedicated listening room. Only things in there are my components, acoustic panels and my chair. Its my little get away.  
Speakers for a small room
Thanks for all the input everyone. This definitely means I have got some homework to do.  
Speakers for a small room
Currently I am running some small Tannoy towers and the dual concentric is amazing. I suspect the LS50s would have similar benefits. Ideally I would like something a bit more capable than the LS50s but if that does not exist in my budget then I am... 
Speakers for a small room
@gdnrbob i have never heard vandy speakers. I will need to hear their sound at some point. People seem to love them. We will see if their sound agrees with me.  
Speakers for a small room
@yogiboy good to know. I would much rather some floor standers for the added extension.  
Speakers for a small room
@yogiboy Have you heard the Spendor D7's in a room with similar dimensions?  
Speakers for a small room
Thanks all for the comments so far. @williewonka it does not need to be a small speaker, it just has to work in a small room. If I can get a tower speaker that others have had success within a smaller room I would prefer that over bookshelves with...
