Magnepan 1.7 or 3.6 -small room!

Hello everyone,
I'm planning on buying my first pair of Magnepan. I still haven't heard neither the 1.7 nor the 3.6 but will soon (in different setups/rooms unfortunately).
I have a Mark Levinson 23.5 and unfortunately a small room 13x15 ft. I would place the speakers on the long side (asymmetrically) at about 3-4 ft from the back wall, about 5-6ft apart (no more), and with at least 4 ft from the sidewalls. The main problem would probably be listening position at about 6-8 ft with the wall behind.
I would go for the 3.6 but am worried about the soundstage. deep and threedimensional soundstage is really crucial for me, if I can't get that I will not love the speakers. that's why am seriously considering the 1.7, that might work better in my room.
By the way, the 1.7 would be with external high/quality crossover and Mye stands and 500$ cheaper than the 3.6. The 3.6 would be late production and supposedly in great shape.
Thanks everyone for your feedback!
