New member and new to spatial, a member on another forum recommended spatial so here I am to check it out. I am looking to purchase new speakers for my dedicate 2 channel setup.
Pre: McIntosh C2300
Amp: McIntosh MC402
DAC: Schiit Yggy
Streamer: Node 2
TT: Vpi Prime
Cables: Interconnects are blue jean, power are cardas
Current speakers are Paradigm 95f but I am moving those back to be my dedicated home theater speakers. My budget is between 5-7,500 which seems to be a black hole for speakers. I have been primarily looking at Focal (used) 1038 and Kanta 3 (yes I found a dealer offering show demos for 7,000).
Music is eclectic I can rock out to Queen, Boston, some mid 90’s rap, John Mayer, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Dave Matthews, Mat Kearney, Beck, EDM/chill, Nora Jones, Lynsey Stirling, Nills Lofgren, and love turning the lights down low and listening to 70’s acoustic music. Only thing I don’t listen to is classical music.
I’m new to OB speakers but from YouTube reviews they get rave reviews. I have been focusing on the X5 and X3 even though they stretch the budget a bit.
Appreciate any input
