Need a bit of help picking between wxa-50 with pair of dali spektor 1, or musiccast 20.

Use case may be a bit unusual. We have a medium sized kitchen and spend many evenings socialising there and listening to music. Primary music source will be streamed Amazon music HD, but also feed from echo show Bluetooth or 3.5mm jack as we watch a lot of music from YouTube (so not the best feeds)

Tried of the echo show sound quality and want to take it to next level. Newbie to really having quality audio and will take a while to build to full set but want to really feel with this setup for the kitchen that the sound brings some emotion with it. Not looking for tons of volume just good quality audio (within the limits of the source). Don't want speakers that are too large, and musiccast 20s are actually better from size. The speakers will be wall mounted.

Chosen yamaha musiccast as it gives more flexibility than say sonos. Price wise in the it would be £500 for the wxa +-50 and spektor 1s, or £300 for the pairs of musiccast 20s.

What would your choice be?

- Would the spektors be an overkill for the room
- Alternatively would the pair of musiccast 20s be OK in terms of a big enough step up ( reviews generally say they're OK, but lack a bit at the top and bottom of the ranges)

Thanks

Thanks Zek hadn't come across those. From the review sound great. Only challenge would be how to stream YouTube from my Echo show or older TV. Both only support 2.5 mm audio or Bluetooth, and sonos port is crazy expensive
