The Graham LS5/9 corrects that issue. I felt the lower mids are well defined and very clear on the Grahams.

Given the required distance to the front wall, I would also suggest a front ported speaker. The Graham or Harbeth 30.2 would work for that. Devore 0/93 can overload the room if placed to close to the wall.

It would have to be front-ported or closed design for sure, I've already stuck pillows in the (massive!) bass reflex tubes of the 250Ti's but there is still a hump around 30-60Hz and you also lose out on the midbass.
It sounds pleasant if you're a basshead but otherwise with classical and acoustic music it gets tiring pretty quickly.

I'm a bit reluctant for Sonus Fabers or Harbeth/Spendors combined with Accuphase, it might get a bit too soft and overdone in the mids.

Now you've mentioned the Sopra 1's.....the Mini Utopia came to mind, makes me wonder how these are.

Are you sure? Epicon 6's have two bass reflex ports at the back.
Though I've been thinking about speakers with a narrow back like SF Cremona M's for example, wonder how these act when placed close to rear wall.

Check out the Totem Arro. Small floor-stander designed to be used near the front wall.

Sorry to deviate from the topic.

Ivan, I see you are only one post away from 66,000 posts!

Specs say >25cm and I have mine slightly less in fact. No bass problems that I can hear.

Not sure were your getting this from but its a bit suspect, imo.
Doesn't quite ring true in my experience.

I only know the old EA1's (Esotar) and remeber those as being very soft, just at the edge of being called a bit 'veiled'.
