I want to purchase Harbeths for an oddly shaped small studio apartment. Please see the inline floor plan below with approximate measurements. I'm thinking P3ESR or Compact 7es-3. Maybe Monitor 30s?
Placements I'm considering (open to other suggestions also and I would consider moving furniture):
1. On wall bracket platform thingies in the positions marked X. toed inwards and downwards, suspended at least 0.5m from the walls and maybe 0.3m from the ceiling.
2. Similarly suspended in positions X.
3. On the desk, toed inwards and upwards on recoil stabilizers in positions X.
My initial preference is for (1). Will this work?
I listen to classical, jazz, rock. For rock I'd like to hear at least some respectable bass. I particularly like sharp imaging when listening to eg small ensemble baroque or jazz trios. Amp is a Metaxas Ikarus mk2 (40W pc mosfet) which is an amazing amp. Metaxas recommended small BBC-style monitors for the Ikarus which is no longer made I think. Primary source will be a Sugden Optima CD player (mid-1990s) with the much-praised high end Philips CDM-9 Loader/laser and Philips dac and filter TDA1543 and SAA7220. Amp and cd player recently retrieved from storage.
The floor is hard tiles and there are no curtains at present. The dotted lines represent concrete ceiling beams which hang about 45 cm from the ceiling.
(Considering the possibility of adding a sub and/or integrating the amp and speakers into a theatre system by adding a second amp and more speakers but this is very much a secondary priority at present).
Thoughts? All help appreciated.
EDIT: I suppose the speakers could possibly go on floor stands in about position X if it doesn't matter that there's a sofa between them. Hoping to save floor space hence the bracket suspension idea.
