Incredible system you have built.  I loved the addition of the changes over time to your system.  Would love to be in your area when they do the council cleanup🤣

Thanks.

 

Unfortunately I didn't get an opportunity to compare the Ref5SE to the Ref6 as I did a complete system swap in one jump from Ref 5SE/75SE with Sasha --> Ref6/Dag S250 with Alexia.

 

That said, the Ref 5SE/75SE is a cracker of a combination and I wish I had kept them for some unknown future use.

 

re: bass output. The Alexia is a very versatile speaker (near-field and a room filler) and while placement is important it is pretty hard to get it wrong. I followed the Wilson Audio Setup Procedure (WASP), I have experimented with countless positions over the last months, starting with flush with the rear wall to 1m out and then and adjustment of the toe-in angles. Right now they sound soooooo sweet and amazing (the bass is just perfect).

 

The other thing which has totally brought the sound together is the acoustic panels, they are a must.
