Man oh man...that is heaven! I have a B460 along with my L220's that have been with me since 1982. Love it/them!

Budgie - what height stands do you have your 4429s sitting on? Am guessing your MA7000 doesn't have any problem pushing the 4429s. Too bad you can't post a pic or two.

Excellent choices. Most are totally unaware of how good the new JBL Synthesis speakers sound. The 4429 can be purchased retail for $5k and has the same one-piece horn structure and same HF and MF divers as the much more expensive S3900 and S4700.

Long time JBL owner here. Owned a pair of 4430s for 15 plus years eventually selling them for a new pair of 4365s. Still own a pair of 4311s that sit in my basement packaged up. Can’t seem to part with them.

No, my MA7000 does not have any problems to handle them
The combination sounds great, stands in a small room, and I'm not a loud player. The self-made stands are 62 cm (24,5 inches) high, so the horns are on ear-height when I sit down on an ordinary chair. The only thing I would like to try, is a DAC between my Mac Mini and my amp. Would that improve things, if improvement on what I have is possible?

And perhaps the most important, if buying a DAC, which one?, as neutral as possible, cause I have not bought Studio Monitors to have them colored with alle kinds of 'nice sounding' devices.

Check out the digital forum. https://www.audioaficionado.org/forumdisplay.php?f=30
Sky's the limit on DACs and they change all the time. The Schiit Yggy is getting great reviews from owners here.
