    I'm in the process of auditioning speakers for a new system where the room is quite large (60’x20’) with a wall of windows on one side and not totally closed wall on the other. I’ve been seriously considering large floor standing active speakers but they are few and far between and haven't heard any yet. The speakers I've listened to thus far are Dyanudio Contour 60 and Spendor D9 and liked them both. Budget is about $10K. I have a Moon 340i but fear it doesn’t have enough power to move the speakers I’ll get. I listen to a lot of classic jazz, classical, brazilian, classic rock but almost no current music. I'm especially interested in folks recommendations on the active front. I've been reading about the Avantgarde Zero's, ATC's, Dynaudio Focus series and Kii Audio. Thanks!

    I’d try to find someone with Tekton Ulfs who’d let me listen to them.

    I would audition the Magico A3s and the Harbeths in addition to the Tekton.

    I would also look close at the $5K ELAC Adante towers which are a particularly good value.
