It is time to update my Quad 63's, which I use with the REL Stadium III.
It would be nice to have the expertise of the TAS folks, and the experience of audiofellows, as to whether to go for the replacement with the 2805, or the 2905s.
I have of course read Jonathan's past review and his enthusiasm for the larger Quads. And know Paul Seydor's preferance for the 2805's.
But my concern is what is best and most effective given the particular size of my listening room.
My dedicated listening room is 4.20 width x 6.60 length in meters (14 x 21 ft), which I would think is just large enough for the 2905's. The back wall behind the speakers is triple glazed glass with blinds and curtains. But the ceiling is only 2.30 m (7', 7") high.
So I am concerned that the base of the larger Quads would be overpowering in this room.
My collection is primarily classical and jazz with thousands of LP's which the Brinkmann two arm LaGrange does more than justice.
So what would be your recommendation for the Quad replacement?
Do I go for the 2805 and keep the REL, or will the 2905's work well and be the perfect choice?
Mind you Jonathan Valin, I also use the classic 80 watt Marantz model 9's ( which I assume from what you wrote they were the prototype for the Air Tights, that you mention have a great synergy with the 2905's). But the most phenomenal synergy of my Quads is with the Rowland Model 6's with BPS that I recently acquired in perfect condition.
