Acoustic Energy AE300 vs Dynaudio Emit M20 vs B&W 606 vs Fyne Audio F500 - Advice Please
Bit of advice hugely appreciated. I have a working studio in the basement of my house. 14' x 12' but with fairly low 7' Roof. I'm a printmaker so lots of ink and paint and materials being moved about. As a result, my current set up is a Sonos (Tidal) as the source to Marantz PM6006 amp out to Dali Spektor 2s on wall mounts. But I've never been happy with the wall mounting or the Dalis so I'm looking for new speakers.
Been on a listening day to various retailers and while I was able to spend 10 minutes or so with each speaker getting some feedback from actual daily users I think would be invaluable.
I narrowed my choice down to Acoustic Energy AE300, Dynaudio Emit M20s, B&W 606s, and Fynne Audio F500s. I was unable to find anyone in Manchester UK who could demo the Kef Q350s so I'm sadly disregarding those.
I really like all the above but for slightly different reasons. The Acoustic Energy's are probably my favourite (but, at £650, perhaps too expensive) followed jointly by the Dynaudios and B&Ws. The Fyne are a bit of an unknown factor to me. I didn't feel the sound was as even (stronger in bass and treble but not midrange) but their selling point was their driver construction which the salesperson said would allow for a wider listening space throughout the room (I move through it a lot doing different projects) as opposed to a single 'sweet spot'. Also, floorstanders might be more stable and less likely to be knocked over so any recommendations there appreciated that are in a similar £500 - £600 price bracket. So these are perhaps my questions:
1. Anyone have experience with the Fynne Audio F500s?
2. Anyone have views on Dynaudios M20 vs B&W 606s? (or just had a pair for a bit and can feedback)
3. Same as above for the Acoustic Energy AE300s - just in case I can get a Black Friday deal!
4. Any alternative and small floorstanders? I did hear the diminutive AE 109s which were impressive but preffered the standmounts I heard.
