High end active speakers

Hi

Looking for some advice. I sold all my separates about 5 years ago and invested in AVI ADM9RS active speakers which I have to say have served me well and continue to do so. I switched because I had all my music on the PC so found I wasn't using CD or record player as much.

Anyway I have come into a bit of cash and want to upgrade but want to invest in new active wireless floor standers. I have found loads of reviews out there but its quite a mixed bag.The reason I say mixed bag is because some require controllers, others dont, others seems to require pre-amps (not sure why based on my limited knowledge). All I am using is a Dell PC with Roon, Spotify and Web (mixcloud etc).

What I am looking for is a set of floor stander active wireless speakers and all requisite parts! for less than £12K. I am not super tech but love my music which ranges from ambient to avant garde composition to techno so all ranges. The space I use them is super odd as it is a weirdly shaped big room. There are only a few shops in Ireland around me who sell Dynaudio and KEF so thats all they recommend.

Looking for advice which is wider than the two recommended (not discounting them by the way as Dynaudio Focus range seem great) and what accessories you would suggest to make it optimal. Want to make my money go as far as possible.

Sorry for long mail but wanted to give as much info as possible.

Thanks

Actives

I grabbed a pair of Meridian DSP8000’s used, unbelievable how affordable they are compared to separates.

I would consider the HEDD Tower Mains with one of the woofer sections, if you could get a slight discount off the MSRP, which should be possible, since they are about £800 over your 12k budget. Then buy a quality blue tooth receiver like this:
