I can get the ls50 new for 700$ including taxes.
My listening room is < 20 square meters and rectangular.
My current setup :
Yamaha ax 570
- 8 Ohm: 2 × 100 W
- 4 Ohm: 2 × 150 W
Jbl l80 (mk2)
I also hope to get a little dac like the e30 or schiit Modi in near future.
The speakers are positioned on the long side of my room.( i can’t put them on the short side). Around 0,30m away from the wall but I can pull them out a few cm.
The listening position is around 2,5-3m away from the speaker.
My questions are :
Would the the ls50 be a worthy upgrade or at least be something nice and different and maybe a little more enjoyable for my small room?
(I like the sound of my Jbl and won’t sell them but I feel like they are a little to big to sound as good as possible in my small room.)
Is the Yamaha a good partner for the ls50? (it has enough power but I heard it is hard to find a compatible Amp for the ls50)
I mostly listen to rock/metal ( nightwish [damn vocals from floor] , dragonforce, five finger death punch, Mike Oldfield , led zeppelin, pink Floyd, muse, radio head etc), some jazz/ big band and film music, a little electronic music like Moby, Frankie goes to Hollywood.
So basically I enjoy a wide variety ^^
I hope you can help me out, because 700$ are a lot of money as a student.
