I am thinking of upgrading my speakers to either Avalon Transcendent or Vienna Acoustics The Kiss. (both in the same price bracket). There are no dealers near where I live so auditioning is not easy although I might have to make the trip eventually.
My set up is currently Ayre C-5xemp Universal Player, Simaudio Evolution 700i Int Amp and B&W 805s standmount speakers. My room size is very small - 3m by 5m. I listen mostly to light jazz with emphasis on female vocals. I don't need deep bass but I look for clarity, transparency, good soundtage with some degree of warmth without sacrificing detail. Would be grateful for any advice or recommnedations on speaker choices. Thanks
