Do you know what his definition of small is?
I also like a big, full sound which is why I usually end up with B&W when I need new speakers, but I don't know if they will go the distance with HT. Is Mark still doing AD / DA with all of his speakers? I understand digital correction results in a net gain for his speakers, but would rather not use speakers with built in EQ since I will need to EQ for the room anyway. Still, I figure they're worth a look. Does Mark have a demo pair he loans out, or a reasonable return policy?
I also wonder what the significance of room volume is. Genelec has a speaker selector tool and it's based on both listening distance (which I understand) and total cubic meters of the room (which I don't). Does the ability to "fill the room with sound" make a difference in the big-ness of the sound?
