I am looking for a speaker that is very full sounding with amazing depth to vocals. Pretty much a speaker that will sound like 3D to my ears with Adele's vocals.

I have heard a few good speakers but none that can even come close to the B&W CM9/Nautilus line for fullness and depth to vocals. Sadly I cannot afford them. frown.gif

I haven't heard much though so I need help.

Do you have a price range for what you're looking for? That's always helpful...

Thanks. I am sure they are all great but which one will give me the best soundstage and depth to vocals with songs like:
seal - bring it on
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Wl_FsEc_Gk
Adele - set fire to the rain
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ri7-vnrJD3k

Trying to avoid speakers that sound recessed, or even worse thin/flat sounding.

Has anyone compared Dynaudio excite, Monitor audio rx, Epos Epic, or Kef Q to the B&W?

I

I think the best you can do is read any professional reviews and then determine which ones u want try. Only u can tell if the speaker fits your definition of what you want in a speaker.

No one can speak for your ears -

Look at the Focal 800 series - they make some good stuff

Monitor Audio RX Silver is also a nice series
