Moved into a bigger house, which means I have a basement I can use as study/listening room, away from kids. Nice. But the space is about 13 x 17, with low ceilings, smaller than I thought. So I am going to pair up Harbeth Super HL5s in the living room with Plinius 8150. Which means I'm going to start auditioning some speakers for my Leben CS600 for my basement system, which is ~ 30 wpc/8 ohms.
Obviously, b/c of small space, I'll have to go w/ monitors or very petite floorstanders. Because of the room, I can do without thunderous bass, but credible & musical bass performance would be nice. They'll have to be reasonably sensitive/efficient, at least I'd like them to be more so than the Harbeth HL5s. Since I already have the BBC type speakers - warm, musical, etc... I'd like to try another type of speakers... something a bit more transparent w/ better capacity for imaging/soundstaging. (Harbeths don't exactly 'disappear') I've already started brainstorming, but as always, I look forward to y'all's input.
