Good one! The only thing holding me back is the room dimensions. I'm fine right now but am moving next year (it is only a one year fellowship) and will be in a smaller room most likely for that time period. The many posts in this thread have made it a little easier with that issue, but think these speakers would perform even better if allowed more room to breath. We'll see!

One thing about the Elipsa SEs is that they are very forgiving to setup. Even if they are not setup optimally they will still sound excellent.

Has anyone heard the Elipsa SEs compared to the newer 2017 line, such as Serafino? The Elipsa SEs can be had at an incredible bargain on the used market, but wondering how they stack up with the latest SF models. I'm not one thinking newer is always better, but wondering nonetheless. There is a used Elipsa SE currently available now, and I know they don't come up that often.
