I have the ooportunity to purchase a good pair of both speakers, but I cannot audition either of them as both will be shipped from overseas. Therefore, I am looking for advice as to which of these will suit my room.
My room is 3.2 metres by 3. Yes, unfortunately a small square room. It is on the upper floor and has hardwood flooring on top of marine plywood floorboards. All four walls are solid brick. Fyi 3 walls have wallpaper and the wall that the speakers will be up against will have a 3 metre fitted wardrobe, with only a 15cm gap between wardrobe and side wall either side.
I was planning on corner loading the SL2 up against this gap to try and manage the boundary setup required for the SL2. I understand that this is not ideal BUT im wondering if it will work.
The Ovator 400 can be pulled out into the room about 30cm from the wardrobe and 50cm from side walls but perhaps the flooring maybe an issue with bass boom.
My preference is for the SL2 as Im curious about this speaker and love the look of retro gear.
My new system comprises of Macbook SSD, Audirvana Plus feeding a Berkeley Audio Alpha USB converter.
BNC cable to Schitt Gungnir Multibit DAC
Amplification is NAC 552 pre, NAP 135s using NAC A5 speaker cable.
All sitting on a Audiphillar rack.
Thanks in advance.
