Hey, a friend of mine wanted me to give him a tip of monitor choice, and he wondered about buying the Adam A77x.

His room is just really packed though. He got like a 4x4 square meter room, where the backside of the monitors will be hugging the wall. Do you think it will work out better for him, to buy some smaller ones like the Yamaha HS80 etc..?

My feeling is that larger monitors need to be placed further from the listening position, so a bigger room is necessary. The size of room you mention is probably better suited to the Yamahas, or something equivalent from another company. Also, the further you are from the monitors, the more the room comes into play and the more important treatment becomes.
