RE: Want to try monitors

I'm not certain you will need a subwoofer in a room of that size.

My only recommendation - because it is a small room - is to be cognizant of monitors with a built in bass bump. It may be very pronounced in a room of that size.

I owned a pair or ProAc Tablette 50 Signatures for 18 years - they had a bass bump. Not certain if the current version does. (I would guess yes).

B&W 805 D3 - I understand the new B&Ws to be pretty flat in the bass. This may work. Their rising top end may work well with your tube gear.

ATC - has roots as a studio monitor; built to have a relatively flat frequency response (no such thin really exists of course). Not certain if your amp will drive them as needed. My understanding is they like a lot of current.

Dynaudio, well, my experience has been a lot of bass from the house of Dyn.

I'm just sharing a few thoughts that popped into my head. This is all theory of course - basis in proof / experience is the final arbiter. Listen if at all possible. You may even like a bit of a bass bump : )

Best of luck with the hunt. . .
