Non-fatiguing speakers in $10K range?
Been on a similar journey and use both Pass Labs separates X250.8/XP22 and also a Luxman 595ase. I’ve finally picked up a speaker I know I’ll have for a very long time. The Legacy Focus SE’s do it all for me! I’ve had them for 2 months and just li... 
Need Guidance for Next/Last Pair of Speakers
A lot of this depends on your room and where you can or cannot position the speakers.  listened to Volti Razz and they were nice but landed on Forte IV’s and they are amazing.  I have a few other systems and the Fortes just do it all so well.

upgrade path from my current speakers? (Dynaudio Special Forty)
I have a pair of the HS’s after auditioning the SP40’s in my home. My Pass Lab INT 25 sounded great w the 40’s but not as good as the HS’s. I brought in a PL X250.8 amp and now the HS’s jumped to a new level with more of the Dynaudio sound. I noti... 
Wall treatments “Asymmetrical”?

Great feedback from everyone and I appreciate it. I ordered the Floyd E Toole Book Sound Reproduction and will start it when it arrives.  I watched the noted YT video and there is so much info I will have to rewatch a few times to fully understan... 
Wall treatments “Asymmetrical”?
Thank you for the quick reply and things to consider.    Assuming you mean more than tape measure measurements, how would I best go about measuring my room? my system sounds really good, not harsh I have a record storage bookshelf about 18” behi... 
Should I Sell My ARC REF 6 and Get A Pass Labs XP-32
I agree w Audphile1 on how the XP22 presents a realistic soundstage and incredible dynamics. I have mine paired w your same amp X250.8 and Sabrina X ‘s and the bass speed and volume control is sublime.  I can only imagine how good the XP32 would s... 
Streamer Selection - Thoughts Requested Please!
I have an Innuos Zen Mk3, a Lumin U2 Mini and a Bluesound node and if I had to choose one it would be the Lumin. They all have their pluses. The Lumins SQ is very much to my liking leaning away from analytical toward warm. The Lumin app is fine bu...
