And yes, they are too close together and too close to the wall. It’s all I’ve got. Haha

horns ribbons and electrostats are the only true way to get dynamics and low distortion. Are those  6 or 6.5" woofers in the two way Klipsch?

Tannoy's Revolution Series XT6 is a true single magnet dual motor DC driver with a 1" horn loaded tweeter they are from a technology point of view the best DC driver Tannoy has ever produced. They also make a smaller version the XT Mini with what they call a 4" woofer (actually 3.25" in dia.) and a concentric 3/4" horn loaded tweeter diaphragm which sound very much like an electrostat. You would be more than surprised should you give them a listen ESL sound quality with much better dispersion than a stat panel. I ran stat for over 20 years and have owned a good number of Tannoys and can say the XT Mini is amazing (I own both the XT6 and the XT Mini) the most coherent Tannoy ever made . My Klipsch days are over now.

Move the curio cabinet. Move the boxy thing on the right. Spread the speakers out and enjoy. Hell, that's good looking equipped. Take advantage of it. PS have you considered headphones?

I just looked up those XT Mini up, looks like a great little speaker. You really prefer the 4” woofer, over electrostatics? They are also very reasonably priced so these might be in the review horizon!

 

These are Martin Logan Source, which are a step down from ESL’s. Still great sounding, I’ve owned both and the ML Purity.

 

Oh, the Klipsch are the RP-600M. They have been pretty awesome!

The cabinet might get moved but my place is only 650 SF so there’s really nowhere else to put it.

This is the other wall:/

Me thinks your cup runneth over. Maybe strategically placed shelves could replace that cabinet to display your things.

I think you’re right.. Been single a little too long this time. Haha

I’m hoping to buy a place soon but who the heck knows, these days.

Yes I do prefer the Tannoy as they present the best of both worlds when set up properly. I have listened to the full Revolution Series the dual 8" floor stand the dual 6" floor stand the single 6" stand mount XT6 and the XT Mini. As they get smaller they integrate better which is to be expected. The Mini is to me not unlike a ProAc Signature Super Tablette so far as the bass goes but surpasses it in stage image and overall size of the 3D sound field. Mine took a good long while to burn in 5 - 6 weeks before they really started to shine. I also extended my reflex vents in the Mini by 1/4" which cleans up the mid bass range a little.
