Yes... Last year arthurs posted those pics. Those are photos from his personal system. The LS9's made an impression on me (at my age that means a lot) and I searched the forum for his post. Very, very nice looking product by AV123 and Mr. Mark S.

I really like those Monitors..gonna look into em. Were getting into some real high end gear here...130k for the Kefs?! I wonder if anyone here owns a pair. And I like the LS-9 also but that looks like a little overkill for my small townhouse. The Magellan Cellos are just beautiful. I dont know how much they cost but if I could afford em I prolly still wouldnt buy em in fear that the kids might ruin them.

Ultimately, you need to listen to the speakers you are going to buy....

The Paradigms are very well known, and widely available, alot of these other speakers are very hard to find to get an audition... I wouldn't buy a speaker unless I was somewhat familiar with their sound...

I have the Paradigm Studio's so therefore I found comfortable buying the Sigs sight unseen/unheard... I bought them used, and I love the sound... Pretty much the same as the studio's but more refined... and much prettier...

How about something more "affordable?"



Vienna Acoustics Schonbergs. About $3,000 pr. These sound as good as they look, IMO. I'll take mine in black.

I would love to audition the Monitors but just looked at their site and theres no dealers around me. Got a Paradigm dealer here but they are out of my price range. Might just drop buy and see what they sound like. Then again I dont wanna get "spoiled" before I even buy anything. It'll be like test driving a Ferrari and then not buying it and then driving back home in a Honda.

I think the best-looking (but not best-sounding) speakers ever were the Martin-Logans of a decade or so ago, the lineup that included the Aerius-i, SL3, and reQuest. The most aesthetically (and sonically) balanced of the lot was the SL3:


Their current lineup is nowhere nearly as graceful and harmonious looking. (They don't sound any better, either.)

Some others I quite like:

Tannoy TD12, though they'd look better without the supertweet and I bet they'd sound better, too.


NHT 3.3


And for a more classic-looking beautiful speaker, the Tannoy Glenair 10.

Good question. I watched them for a while and even though I think there were some people who did receive them on a pre-order, inventory is not available at the moment? Correct me if I'm wrong. I found my huckleberry anyway, but the 6's were a consideration for me. The 9's are to large for my small room.

Why not... I have sampled a ton of higher price speakers that I can't afford, and not all of them are leaps and bounds better then some others...

I will tell you straight up, that every chance I get to test drive a Ferrari, I will jump all over it, and I own a Honda... Just took out one of my customers Porsche Cayman S, and let me tell you, it was a freakin blast... Can I afford one, nope, do I want one, nope... Did I say no when he handed me the keys with a smile on his face...? Yeah Right...

If I want to go really fast, I can always jump on my FJR 0-60 in 2.8.

Enjoy life and audition... its free and fun...

The Paradigm and Monitor Audio are by far the 2 best offerings for my tastes. Very sleek and classy with some serious sexy mixed in. Plus...most of us could actually see ourselves having a set of them someday. The others are awesome to look at, but knowing you will never be able (or want to) afford them is a bit of detractor. But this is such a fun thread to break up the "what should I buy" overload and monaughtny of the forum right now. I can't take my eyes off of the Monitor Audio Platinums, I just keep going back to their web-page.

There are some beautiful speakers posted here for sure! While I love the look of piano black and fine hardwoods...

... there is something special about the solid marble cabinet on the white marble nOrh 9.0. I'm afraid I'll always be in love with this speaker.

Are there actually 2 of those in that room?!?!?! I hope that's not the speaker wire running behind it?

Never heard that one before.... though some say they look like a giant ham turned on its side.

These are definietly love them or hate them. They are definitely unusual.

Any other speaker manufacturers use a marble cabinet? I wish more speaker companies did. Resonance = zero, and the material is amazing to look at.
