I am currently shopping for some new Bookshelf speakers and am wondering if you can give me some advie /insights.
The speaker will be placed in a small room. The room is 8.2f / 2.55m x 13.5f / 4.10m.
Speaker will be placed at the long wall, so the licenging distance to the speaker ist approx 6.3f / 1.9m
The speakers have to be placed realtivey close to the wall (around 6 inch depeing on the speaker depht)
currently i have JBL lsr 305. As i do want to change to passives, i grabed a Marantz NR1509 in a sale.
What i am looking at
Basically the LSR 305 have been great speakers. I like the tight bass resoonse and the detailed hights.
What i do not like is that the LSR are a bit too analaytical and sharp to my ears. in fact i am getting some fatigue relative quickly while listening to them.
Basically i am looking for a speaker that is less forward/bright and more smooth and warm while still keeping the thight and fast bass response at the small wall distance.
Unfortunatley i am not able to demo speakers in my room and send them back in my country.
I was looking at the KEF Q150 as they are supposed to be more laid back and warm sounding, but still give a descent amount of details. However i am afraid that they may get a bit boomy/bloated in my room and that close tho the back wall(maybe can fix this with the sponges).
Another contender would be the Elac DBR.62, front ported, but i fear they might be a bit overpowered for my room and listening distance and have too much much base. The Debut 6.2 are almost same price where i live, so they are ruled out.
I also consider Focal 905, but i fear they are to bright for for my taste.
The PSB alpha p5 might be a good fit? However they are also a bit expensive in my country at about 500 dollars..
The Triangle BR02 should be soft, but also might be to bright for my taste.
Looking for some insight from people coming form the LSR or having similar room restrainsts.
PS Sorry for my bad english
