My M&K S-5000's could play really loud and much louder than specs indicated. Don Keele actually put 10kwatts into them before they started clipping the waveform! They could play reference easily and sound great doing so. Of course my new JBL speakers are better IMHO.

Please add the Tannoy definition DC 10 ti's to your list. I brought my pair home Friday night and they sound spectacular at reference level. I know you have the definition 12 inch wall install on the list but these floor stands also handle the power beautifully.

I would like to add JBL4722n speakers to this list. Great for cinema and music and highly sensitive so they can be ran with a receiver or external amp.

The Tannoys were some of the first speakers added. Sure, I can add the middle child too! "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!"

The JBL's are naturally also among the first added years ago. I don't know when I added the 4722n, but it's on the Google spreadsheet.

I've always liked something about Tannoy ever since I heard one of there monitors ( don't know model num) years ago and was impressed. I'd love to hear the DC-10s in my theater compared to my JBL 4670Ds I recently parted together from used.

I guess the Tannoy would sound more "point-source-y" and less "wall of sound" ?

Prolly so, and more refined perhaps and smoother. Curious bout the midbass of the Tannoy too.

The midbass is outstanding. Tight and detailed. It is a very refined sound but quite smooth. Just a pleasure to listen at any volume. I am truly hearing background music and vocals that I did not know existed on many tracks. I know Tannoy fell off the map in the US for quite awhile but these speakers are a bargain. I liked them substantially better than the KEF reference 3 which had a MSRP of 3k more.

Definitely not a wall of sound but projects quite well into my kitchen which is 50 feet away. Still has a sweet spot about 16 feet.

Thank you for the invite! Interestingly enough I lived in Ft. Collins for a year back in 2000. I worked at Ft Collins Motor Sports just off I-25. Loved that job. Great town.

Nice man sounds like a great speaker. My JBLs have a very huge sound to them (as said a giant wall of sound)with lots of midbass that is vicious sounding and visceral especially at loud volumes without breaking up. Low volumes they can be smooth too.
