After months and months of auditioning and thinking and saving, I am finally in position to purchase my dream system. It will consist of the Wilson Sasha WP's, Ayre MX-R, and Ayre KX-R. I am still finalizing my source selections. Per the buzz in the press, I am still doing some research. I really do like the new Boulder that was on the cover of Stereophile a few months ago. (Actually, I think the Sashas sound better with the Boulder monoblocks than with the Ayre, but the damn price tag of those amps!)
Only potential problem: my room is 10x12x8.5. I plan to use absorption to minimize room interactions. I already anticipate some genius coming along and saying I should get a couple of cheap studio monitors or smaller Wilsons. The problem is they do not move my heart. Another genius will say that since I can afford such an expensive system, I should tear down my house and build a new one. Ha! Great idea, but in another life!
What am I going to be missing with a smaller room? How much will I be missing? What can I do to make things better? I have heard that one actually gets better sound with adequate absorption by not having the room as a factor.
Please advise. Thanks!
