    Hum... It seems you have a simple taste.
    Only the best satisfies you!!


    For my taste you will not regret the change!

    Amazing!

    Thanks,

    Ash - that would be close. I think you would be ok, but I would love to see a pair of 120’s in that size of room to start. My room is about 14 x 22. So, as you can see....13 x 18 is close. But I would start with the 120’s, a Noble Integrated and Noble CD/DAC/Roon streamer and good copper cables.

    Mike,
    Thank you so much for your input. You have got me thinking! Please do not forget to put some videos of the performance of the MBL extremes on 11/16! I am anxiously waiting to see how they sound in your showroom.

    We sure did in the store! But sadly, they won’t fit in my room at home. Too tall.
