In my small I am looking for a bit more transparency and the same,small room bass. If it keeps the musicians in the room with me I am a happy camper.
How big is your room? That is dependent on the model you select from Spatial. I was actually considering the Sapphire M3s, but I'm not 100% sure yet. It's either the M3s or M5s. My room is 12'11"x13'.

Hi Stargate, Yes I went with the M5 because my room is 12x13x8. I also really like the simplicity of it. I know one woofer 15” will be plenty in that room. This is a dedicated music room so set up just to accept the system. I will be powering through a Manley Stingray iPod. I am hopeful that 20/40 watts of Manley tubes will be plenty. Happy to let you know how it works.

Yeah, I’ve decided to buy the M5s. It will provide MORE than enough bass in my 13x13 room. :D

@bbybaudio - Any listening updates?  How are they sounding and which speakers have the M5s replaced?
@jazzman463 - Have you received your M5s yet?

Have about 67 hrs on them. Placed them 8.5 ft apart center to center. Used laser and tape measure to line up toe-in. Mids have more tone and bass is becoming very good. Heil seemed to get better at 40 hrs. My listening position may be too far back at 10 ft, but I prefer this to closer. I know longer listen in ultra linear only in triode mode. May switch out KT150s to try EL34s. Overall these are amazing speakers which only make you sad when you realize how much music you have been missing. Great job Clayton!

Just to confirm.  You are talking about your X5 speakers not the M5?

Yes, commenting on the X5s. Right now have the subwoofer amps turned up past 3/4 to match output of Primaluma Integrated, which is at 32-35 db.
