Soundstage and image height, does it exist?
There is no question that if you have the ability to try multiple pairs of speakers in your room, switching back and forth that you will hear differences in soundstage width, height, depth and envelopment.  And then the trick is, once you've settl... 
my own experience with Tekton Design
@Carlsbad2 You have to keep this friend...anyone who would bring their 135lbs speakers to my house to audition would merit a bump up in friendship status...🤣    
Outlet Question
And then there us always the issue of what happens to your insurance coverage in the event of a fire that starts with a “non approved” outlet?  
Ohm Speakers Status Update
The attenuation switch seems like it would be a good selling point for ohm and should be described on their website and included in their manuals.   
Buying Used Speakers
Just as an example… if you were looking at speakers on USAM from a seller who has numerous positive ratings and has sold speakers… you can be pretty confident you are dealing with a seller who will do everything possible to give a fair rating and ... 
FAKE NEWS - NEGATIVE REVIEWS NOT ALLOWED!!
If every time we read a review our brains could remind us that is an opinion or a preference and not an absolute truth…we may then react better to what we read… positive or negative.    If I reviewed my buddy’s system, it wouldn’t rank as high as... 
what's a good Gan / Class D option under 3k? Nilai or Ncorex500?

My experience with The Music Room
Two questions… Was there a less expensive option than $800? Did you also have to pay sales tax?  
Any normal size speakers that sound like Volti
I suspect that the new Volti Lucera which are a lot smaller might very well fit the bill.  
Magnepan LRS+ which amps do you use ? * 100 watts or less **
The Pass XA25 drives the LRS+ beautifully and plenty loud.    Next up, I’m going to try the AHB2… just for the heck of it… and it’s 100 watts.   
Gallium Nitride GaN Class D Amplifiers
I've had the Orchard in my system twice..for a week each and it is a great sounding amp...but as we all know, it ultimately comes down to personal preference. Fortunately, the amp is on tour and if you join the tour, you can try the amp for a wee... 
Volti does it again!
And...if he can't/won't/doesn't...just remember that many manufacturers are increasingly reluctant to put people together unless they really know both parties pretty well...and it's hard not to blame them in this time of increased "tension" betwee...

Volti does it again!
