A few (major) changes since my last post. The Klipsch's are gone... they did some interesting things but were flawed and had to go back.
The Unitiqute2 is now being used solely as a preamp being fed by a NDX/UnitiServe. Power comes from the delightful NAP100 and speakers are the amazing ProAc Tablet 10's. No speaker this small has any business making this much bass. It is remarkable how involving and dynamic the 10's are. Even a recording engineer buddy of mine was impressed and helped me position for the speakers (he has remarkable listening skills).
I've also added a bunch of Vicoustic room treatments which have tamed the space.
Next step is to replace the UnitiQute2 and NDX with a 272. I'll stop there ;-)
