We moved and our listening room is smaller than in our old house. In our old house we had JBL l100 with a Peachtree amp 500 and Peachtree Nova 150 as a preamp - this system was perfect to my ears. My spouse and I traded in the L100s and bought a pair of R3 Metas from my local dealer - they sounded good in the shop but in our room they sounded dull and hollow, I brought them back and bought a pair of LS50 WIIs - we are blown away by how good these speakers sound - they are so tiny! The soundstage is smaller than my JBLs, but its close - in our room they get 80% there. I am considering getting a sub since we still have 1300$ of trade in value after returning the JBL l100s to my local shop. I suspect that the W2s are doing active DSP and room correction - I am sure the R3s could have sounded good in our room if I played around with them, but the W2s just sound sooo good.
