So my system consists of the Stellar Stack with Mono 700’s. Speakers are Jade 5. All are contained in a small room, (11 x 14 x 8) that triples as my bedroom, listening room and studio for on air internet house music shows.
The speakers have to be toed in to the extreme to cross in front of me. Imagining is fantastic listening in the near field as I am forced to do because of the room. Speakers are tipped up a bit on the top end. Bass is good but ill defined on all but top recordings. Instrument tonal quality is only okey. ( my taste in music varies from classical to jazz to house and disco. I use bass traps in the front corners and a combo of diffusion and absorption panels on the rear wall. I had panels behind the speakers but removed them to a dramatic improvement in sound.
So I’m thinking I need to update the speakers - trying to keep a 3,500 limit on the purchase. I was waiting for the stellar speakers but I give up. Any ideas?
