I'm looking to replace my Onix Mini Strata speakers that were recently damaged. The room they would go into has some limitations but is roughly 14'x14'x8'. I'd like to keep the overall height to not much more than 40" (you'll see from the pics below that the mini's were a bit tall given the constraints. Trying to keep the budget around $3K but could stretch a "smidge" more.
The room does double duty between 2CH home theater/TV and music.
I am drawn to speakers that are on the warmer side of neutral. I have a problem with overly resolving, bright, detailed speakers - after a few minutes, my head starts to hurt and I want to leave the room. Love lush mid range, especially female vocals . Tend to listen to blues, jazz, Americana, folk, indy music.
Most likely will be pairing the speakers with a Marantz SR7012 which will be replacing a Marantz SR7000 that was also damaged.
I'd be curious to hear from any former Onix Mini Strata owners... I actually enjoyed these a lot. Sad to see them go. Based on the above, any recommendations from the Salk lineup?
Initially, I'm thinking the Salk Song3, but open to other suggestions. The Song Towers look to be a bit on the tall side.
Edit: How the heck did this post upside down? I tried flipping the image around and reposting but that didn't work. Hopefully, y'all can image the pic rotated 180 degrees.
Edit #2: Wind Chaser fixed the image (Thank you!) two posts down... removing mine here.
