New speakers unveiled from Clayton Shaw - Caladan
Jaytor, Excellent summary of your listening experience.  I have heard Spatials with LTA more than once and I had the same impression as you did. At the PAF, the front end of the Spatials with Don and Lynn's gear and the stellar Lampizator DAC was...

Speaker Recommendations

Isolation platforms for Cube Audio Jazzon speakers
David, A very reasonable and erudite response, pointing out alternatives.  You and Charlesdad are always helpful with your responses.  Thanks very much... I will experiment.   I had my Dynaudio C1 Signatures playing for a week and loved the dire...

Don Sachs has Spatial Audio X-series speakers and I have the former M4 Triode Masters.  Both are wonderful speakers.    
Isolation platforms for Cube Audio Jazzon speakers
