    Just heard that the open baffle speakers from Supravox are called "Zelia." They say they will be released soon.

    Thanks for the info. Did you give them a call to find out? I will be most interested when this model comes out.

    Exlibris - did you hear the Voxativ yet?

    With that room, a front ported speaker might work very well.

    A floor firing concept using TWQT cabinet loading or floor firing horn will work better in terms of room coupling and control in a small room. Something like the Bastanis Wildhorn or Matterhorn would be potentially a good option.

My musical tastes are strictly rock (in terms of what section of the record store you'd go to): from current bands such a Mogwai but mostly lots of 70s stuff. I was listening to a lot of early 70's Yes and Genesis last night and I've heard systems (mostly my own past systems) become a confused, flattened, and shouty mess on many of those songs. Last night mine did surprisingly well.
    Something like this would probably work very well in your room

    http://www.bastanis.de/index.php/aud...peaker-rothorn

    or if you are a bit more industrious:

    OR if you feel like getting what is probaby the best currently available speaker with this design concept:

    https://www.horninghybrid.com/aristoteles/
    https://www.horninghybrid.com/eufrodite/

    Eufrodite might be too large for your room but Aristoteles not.

    I sent them an email and they responded.

    No; I haven't made arrangements to do so yet.

    I heard the Eufrodite at a show once and really liked what it was doing on top. The bottom end sounded like it was coming from a completely different speaker though. I've never been one to be that focused on seamless driver integration but the lack of integration was really obvious in this case. It could have been the room and room modes rather than the speaker.

    I'm not sure that I have a "small room." The ceiling above the listening position is 17' high and the listening space opens onto a kitchen with only an island separating the two.
