Prem,IME, all speakers interact with the room, unless set up correctly. I had the B&W 801 Matrix speakers too. Set up correctly, nothing to beat the bass of B&W 801. Which is why I guess a few Pink Floyd albums have been mastered on B&W.
For coherency and tonality nothing by to touch a single driver.
For transparency an electrostatic.
For microdynamics and presence a horn.
What about Field coils?
I have few vintage and modern ones. planning to build cabinets like this. Acquired Baltic birch ply of various thickness. Will start the project soon.
