Due to the current economic situation in Austin, I am being forced to relocate elsewhere to find gainful employment. This relocation will likely force me to take a major step down in the size of my home. That means I will be living in a place that won't accommodate Magneplanars. Planar-magnetic speakers require lots of space to the sides and rear to sound their best, so they don't fit well in a typical 12x16 living room. So while I look for a new job, I'm also beginning to look for speakers that I can buy once I'm working again. I'd like to preserve as much of the good qualities of Magnepan sound as possible (very realistic string/acoustic instruments, natural and unrestrained sound, extremely accurate tonal character) but in a speaker setup that fits in a smaller space. So here are the options as I see them... - Hang on to the Maggies and jam them into a small space. Or sell the Maggies and get one of the following: - 5-channel ACI Jaguar LE setup (limited bass but draws raves as a quality mini-monitor speaker. Expensive at $2,500 per pair) - 2 pair of Diva by Swans 6.1 + the Diva center channel. Less expensive and has drawn lots of rave reviews, and it's a full-range speaker. - Something from the upper end of the nOrh line (in ceramic or marble). Same pros/cons as the Jaguar. Any thoughts???
