speakers for small room

I have a small living room. My amp is an Accuphase powering some Harbeth P3ESRs and a KEF KC62 subwoofer. Sounds great for acoustic and jazz. However, I also like big symphonic works and the Harbeths don't cut it for that. I'm looking for something more dynamic and something that can push more air to give me that grand experience of listening to big works. Any recommendations? Assume a budget of $10000.




I'm considering selling my amp and preamp to get an integrated  with more power like a Pass Labs INT250 or Hegel H590 or Ayre AX5/Twenty


Lots of KEF REF 1 Meta recommendations it seems

They were  limited production, but I have Dynaudio Heritage Specials and they are incredible. Perhaps a used pair. For a stand mounted speaker, the bass is wonderful. Imaging, dynamics, timbral accuracy, are spectacular. And with any really terrific speaker, the better that you can put in front of it, from source to amplifier, the better the sound.

Looks like most of you are recommending standmounts. Maybe I should foucs there?


Sounds very familiar.

ATC SCM19's in a 12' x 20' room powered by 220 wpc.

Works for me.



How about Vaughn Cabernett II that I have?


It has small footprint with 93 db/w.

It can play sympony with scale in small room.


it was driven by 48 watt SET amp  called Line Magnetic 508.


I have Scaena 3.2, Altec A7 and Lansche 4.1 in addition to Vaughn speaker.


if you live Pacific Northwest, I may let you test it at your room.
