Hi all, I have to reluctantly change my speakers. My system is a pair of musical fidelity x-a50 monoblocks, x-pre preamp, a meridian go8.2 cd player and pmc gb1i floorstanders. Good quality connects link the whole and the sound is absolutely stunning, (i.m.h.opinion). The problem is I have had to move to a smaller house with a smaller listening room. The sound from my set-up is overpowering my room even at modest levels. This was not a problem before as I could allow the system "off the leash" as it were. I am already convinced to move towards standmounts as I believe that the tradeoff in dynamics would be replaced by detail and imaging. I have read several reviews of the spendor sa1 and this sounds like the way I should be headed. Any help would be appreciated. Ideally I would like to get a shortlist drawn up and then audition. Thanks in advance. Oh by the way my listening tastes are vocals and detailed music so a good middle and top-end are a must, also I like a well controlled bass.
