    If those were XR290s, sitting in that lobby, I would have done everything in my power to acquire them. I think those would fit quite nicely in my listening room.
    I remember an email from Roger, where he told me that he used a pair for several years in a 10'x12' room before replacing them with his IDS-25s!!!

    Well, since McIntosh and Sonus-Faber are part of the same company, I see no need for McIntosh to have their own speakers. This way they can focus on their electronics.

    Roger told me the same. He said he set his on the long wall when asking him about how to set up my XR290s. You should build you a set of the IDS-25s. They sound very similar in near field to XR290s and are great up through moderate listening levels.

    I'm still hopeful that my XRT20s are going to keep me happy for a very long time, but they have to go back to the repair shop, as one of the speakers came home with an issue. My listening room is 15' x 21-1/2', so it should be a decent enough size for my XRTs.

    I forgot you were restoring the XRT20s. Hopefully all is squared away satisfactory to you soon. You will love the 20s.
