I'd like to hear opinions about what speakers are the best at varying price points. A friend of mine is in the market, so I told him I'd try to find out for him. So, nominees for best speaker at the following prices:

1) $500
2) $1000
3) $2000
4) $3000
5) $4000
6) $5000

I think he wants to spend ~$3000, pretty sure he won't go over $5000.

Thanks. BTW, I mentioned the Primus P363, the Vandersteen 2CE Sigs, and the B&W CM10's to him already.

There's no such thing as "best" as all speakers have a sonic personality. My usual short list for recommending speakers includes Monitor Audio, PSB, Kef, Aperion, Axiom, and Ascend.

There is no such thing. You are just going to listen to a lot of speakers and decide which are best to you.Have fun smile.gif

Horn vs ribbon vs dome vs planar etc is where to begin deciding the main sonic signature while investigating the merits of each type of design.
