I have a friend who uses his 1.7's in a near field set up. His room is small, probaby 10x12 or something similar. He sits about 4-5 feet from the speakers. His system sound fabulous. He even uses dual rhythmik subs but does use some room treatments.His gear also sounds great at low volumes, meaning it stays musical and keeps its dynamics.
Have you ever heard the Mini Maggies as full speaker system for a small room?If not, don't dismiss them.They were Holy Sh*t good and it was just a laptop, a Cambridge integrated amp and a small REL sub.When they were first introduced at a show (that what's behind the curtain bit) people were expecting it to a big a very LARGE speaker system so they'll fill up a room with sound. I believe they were being driven with a gazillion watts from Bryston amps.
I am lucky, though, as the upstairs is just perfect for 1.7s.If there is a next house I'll make sure there's a 20.7 sized room!
Sides don't matter like I.Greyhound Fan said.It sounds like you've found your solution and as for the retirement home, I couldn't agree more!I just want a big box to live in.Upstairs one monster room to live in, small kitchen and bathroom.Downstairs motorcycles and reptile quarters.Maybe a small house for the wife, she can bop over for a conjugal visit on occasion.
