    I think the S3 MkIIs I have in a 15 x 18 room would work perfectly. These have a small footprint. Not being ported speakers, I doubt these or the A5s would overload your room nor would they be fussy to place. I wouldn't do the S1 MkII - not...

    If you're prepared to spend this much on electronics, why not a little more on speakers (even if you need to cut back elsewhere) - at least an A5? Speakers will have the biggest impact on sound quality.

    In my experience, Regas of any "class": Planar 3, Planar 6, Planar 8, Planar (or the earlier "RP" or "P" generations), punch WAY above their respective price points. Ya just can't go wrong.

    Check on the Cmode module itself, it may indicate the direction of installation. For example, the directionality of the new Alpha V2 IC is indicated on the TAP module with a set of arrows.
