Yes, the tea room is small. AND boxy...comin’ in at 14x13x8. Bass: MIA first 14 hours; grew concerned maybe my goods were damaged? The delicious mids kept me entertained and patient. From there bass emerged gradually but somewhat lacking in slam and depth.

Past and current Maggie owners have shared bass will improve around 400 hours in. Currently, the little ones have 128 hours on the books. Interestingly, I went from waiting for bass to evolve to me being the one evolving around the bass presentation of the LRS. The bass returned is one of quality - taut, focused & quick. Few nights back, I leashed the maggies up my tube monaural amps. Played a studio session on vinyl with Nathan East, Keiko Matsui, Steve Forman & Vince Colaiuta. The texture of Nathan’s bass as his fingers ran around that neck...yessir!!!

Horizons: skip the sub and focus on getting the .7 or 1.7; pursue vintage speakers eventually.

Note .: speakers are appx 48” from wall behind; 48” from sidewall; 56” from each other; still evaluating seated position & speaker location.

Good review on these LRS's

https://hometheaterhifi.com/reviews/...peaker-review/

Some say the D-Sonic Class D amps really make the LRS's sing!

I would LOVE to hear these LRS's with the new NAD Master M33 Integrated amp with the all new Purifi Class D Modules !..

Any word on how they match up with your tubes? Inquiring minds and all that.........

Thanks to Anticables’ Zero-impedance boxes, it worked out quite nicely! Now I get to enjoy variety out of my maggies. Appx 300 hours through tubes, 200 hours solid-state so far. Two new changes last two weeks has enhanced my listening pleasure:

- Borrowed chinchilla fur from bedroom. Despite looking & feeling better inside the bedroom, once I discovered it resolved floor bounce and echoes in the living room, it ain’t going back!

- New 華 Hana-MH moving coil.

Currently have 61 hours on new phono stage and 37 hours on the Hana. So, I’m still out on a thrill ride...
