I have Fritz Rev 7 SEs that I run in a small listening space not much larger than yours. I often listen at volumes lower than 65db, in fact I’m listening right now about about 45-50db and they sound fantastic. Even at this level they disappear and... 
Amplifier for Dilemma B&W 802D3
For my money I think I’d go with the 611s.  
Recommendations for really well-recorded music for high-end audio system demo
@simao i agree, I was amazed at how deep and wide the soundstage is on that album.  I’ve heard folks say they heard things from behind them when listening to that album.  I don’t quite have that happening but it does sound like music is coming fro...

I think Fleetwood Mac Rumours is one of the best recorded albums of all time. k.d. lang Ingenue is also a well recorded album

Arne Domnerus “Limehouse Blues” from Jazz at the Pawnshop I might take some shade for this one but it’s really well recorded Madonna “Vogue” (It's not my favorite song but it’s done very well.) Zero 7 “When It Falls”    
Gustard R26 finally excels via I2S input!
I run a Denafrips Pontus II with a Hermes DDC via I2S.  Before the addition of the DDC I thought the DAC was excellent but the after the DDC took it to another level.  
Whats playing on your system today?
Billy Joel Turnstiles.  Just watched his 100th show at MSG I had recorded from last month.  He still sounds so good.  
Sound Quality
@navyachts no apologies necessary my friend.  Hope you are enjoying your new streamer.  I’ve been on the hunt for one myself.  Not sure whether to get an Aurender or an Innuos.  
Sound Quality
At the risk of sounding like a pedantic a**hole, there is a difference between an SD card (secure digital) and an SSD (solid state drive).  The OP keeps using the term SD card.  I realize the confusion has been cleared up, as it was asked twice, b... 
Anyone listen to entire albums?
@grislybutter we were not well off when I grew up either.  I do remember listening to my parents collection of Billy Joel albums though when I was all of maybe 10.  I think they had maybe five or six albums and that was it.  That and The Beach Boy... 
Anyone listen to entire albums?
I grew up right at the crossover from vinyl to cassette tape so I never really got into vinyl.  I have wonderful memories of listening to the radio, particularly at the community swimming pool, all through the seventies.  I think that’s what draws... 
Best Covers
@steve59 no you are not alone.  Blinded By the Light is one of my favorites.  
Anyone listen to entire albums?
@roxy54 i could not agree more regarding additional tracks on remastered albums.  
Does Every Track Sound Great on Your System?
@ghdprentice +1.  I find myself almost always being drawn into the music rather than listening to my system. I often find myself tapping my feet in time.  I never really thought about it the way you expressed it.  
Does Every Track Sound Great on Your System?
Hard to say since it’s relative to what you like and how your system sounds but it sounds good on mine.  Definitely bass presence but not too much.  There are a few songs that sound anemic on my system but that’s just the recording since others so...
