So I saw a thread on AK and was wondering what you guys and gals have owned and loved. Just your Top 3....

For me it would be:

1. Apogee Diva's, why I got rid of these I will never know. Argh!!!

2. Polk SDA 2B's, still have these.

3. Klipschorns, didn't work in my current home at all. :(

What say you?

2. recently acquired Magnepan SMG first run.

3. also recently acquired but I absolutely love Monitor Audio Silver rx2

If your talking strictly speakers owned, not listened to, my list is

1- Legacy Focus 20/20....current
2- Polk SRT's
3- Polk 1.2 TL's
4-Polk 3000P's

Ok, sorry, thats 4, my bad. Now speakers I want to own is a different story. Probably Montana Was, Sonus Faber Amanti, Legacy Whisper HD. My speaker choices come from having HT/2 channel in one system.

Mine correspond to 3 different phases in life.

Stereo:
Current: PSB Synchrony One towers
Late 80s-early 90s: SDA-2
Mid 70s: Pioneer CS-A700


Two channel speakers are on my upgrade list for this year. Then the PSBs will move into the HT/surround sound system

HT:
LSi15s

1. Polk RTA 11TL - no longer own but probably my favorite speaker I ever owned to this day, just a beast that hit low and extended naturally high. So realistic sounding for concerts. Big suckers though.
2. Paradigm Studio 20 V5 - An excellent mini monitor with no cons except the lack of affordable speakers to build out a full surround set.
3. PSB Image B6 - Okay, only had these a few weeks, but they do everything mostly right and mostly nothing wrong. The stereophile review saying they're the Honda Accord of speakers is right on. That might sound like faint praise, but in this case, it's a very good thing. More attractive in person than in photos, that's hard to do.

I just looked at my cheat sheet spreadsheet (the one where I list every speaker I've ever owned with my own personal review so that I don't forget what I thought - come on, I know I'm not the only one that has one) and there are 23 pairs of bookshelf speakers and two sets of towers that didn't make the top 3 list.

There's probably a thread somewhere that says "How many speakers have you owned?" I'll bet that my 30 or so pales in comparison to most of the heavy hitters on here.

My top three are:

1. LSiM 703s (currently own), these things blow me away everytime I listen to them.
2. SDA-1Cs with RDO-194 tweets, what can I say about these that hasn't already been said? An awesome all-around speaker.
3. RTA-12Bs/Martin Logan Sequel IIs, both were great speakers that I miss very much.

I could give you about six that I own and really like.
Top three would probably be:

* Altec 604E Duplex (with Mastering Labs crossovers)
* Altec Santiago (I do, in all honesty, prefer these to my 846A Valencias - heretical though that may be)
* Quad ESL-57

There would be one Polk loudspeaker in my top six...

Joe08867
04-02-2012, 11:05 AM
Mhardy, you have owned some cool stuff. Altec 604e Duplex are awesome speakers. Never heard them with the Mastering labs Crossover but I am sure it was amazing.

Some really good speakers in these lists, wish I had a chance to hear a few and truly wished I owned a lot of them.

mhardy6647
04-02-2012, 12:24 PM
Thanks - I'd like to think they're kind of cool :-)

The ML XOs (or Jeff Markwart's phase corrected Altec XOs, see http://home.earthlink.net/~jmarkwart/ ) apparently right the ostensible wrongs of Altec's XOs for those fine drivers - I can't really vouch for that... but I can tell you that my 604Es are not harsh, shouty, or aggressive at all (which are traits often ascribed to Altec Duplexes with Altec factory XOs).

Everyone who is serious about this hobby should own a pair of Quad ESLs for reference if nothing else. Based on my own experience, I'd vote for either 57s or 63s, but I think any and all up to their current offerings would all be fine.

If we could've named more than three, I'd have also added my dump find Allison Ones, dump find ads L-710s, and my $10 charity fleamarket DCM timewindows to the list :-P
(EDIT: The Monitor 7As would be in the top six, though!)

I bought the P-17B's which I got for a great price thinking when funds came available I could move the bookshelves to surround sound duty and buy the floorstanders. I was using them for HT and they sounded great but just couldn't stomach spending soooo much on the P-37F's ($8k) after hearing the ST's.

What would those sound like "without" tubes? Would that "change the order above". I'm curious because, aren't most Altecs "horn" speakers that might find their sound affected by less mellow SS amplification?

I couldn't imagine listening to them "full time" with soiled state amplification.
That said, I did once try - just for shoots and Googles - the 604s with the cheap-jack $20 Lepai "T amp" Parts Express is selling - and it was perfectly listenable. A little bit tizzy, but not at all bad.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v223/mhardy6647/604E1.jpg

The Monitor 7As I have did not sound very good at all with vacuum tube amplification the one time I tried 'em (a couple of different PP EL84 integrateds).

I've only really ever owned Polks. Well at 15 I built my own speakers with parts I bought from Radio Shack.

1) Polk Audio SRS 1.2TL's (my current speakers)

2) SDA CRS+'s Blade/Blade 1987 (I sold these, bought them new in 1987)

3) SDA SRS 2's

4) SDA 1C's

I'd like to own one day a pair of 2.3TL's & the Original SDA SRS's

A T-Amp? that is impressive! You seem to prefer the EL 84 based amps?

Well I have two things to do yet with a couple of speakers that I like quite a bit (Polk 5As and KLH 17s)

And that involves running them with tubes. I know the KLH respond well to tubes--even the 8 watt a side Tube amp Jstas built from a kit, but I'm not sure about the Monitors.

I've liked some later EPIs ('80s) like the EPI T/E 360...one heck of a tower.
I've also loved every ADS I've owned and/or heard!
And SDA 2Bs are pretty good on "tubes" as well!

The classic ads (and Braun) speakers, despite being sealed boxes ("monkey coffins") are surprisingly sensitive and work well with fairly low powered vacuum tube amps. The L-710s I found at the dump are very good with PP EL84, and were quite listenable even with SE 2A3.


http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v223/mhardy6647/P1020545.jpg

Another stunning little loudspeaker that I had here for a while was a pair of IMF Supercompact IIs (also dump finds). I ended up trading them to an AKer for a cache of Nikon camera equipment for my son (& myself). Great, smooth, detailed and nonfatiguing speakers in the "classic British monitor" idiom. Don't have a handy photo on-line of those...

New to audio so I have only owned Polk's so far as well. Best speaker so far is the LSi9. This will be modded someday. LSi7's are on the way from Polk direct. Finally LSiFx's are pretty nice surrounds that easily bested my previous FXi3's.

CCNJ - You still rockin' the Totem's and the Harbeth's?

Zero - Yes. The Totem Hawks are new. Only had them a couple of months. Nice little floor stander that throws a wide sound stageand really nice tight bass.

The Harbeths are part of the office/computer setup. They are amazing little speakers that just disappear even at near field listening which is how I have them setup. They really shine when listening to vocals and acoustic music.

04-04-2012, 08:13 PM
Chris - Awesome. I used to run a set of Hawk's years ago. To be honest, I miss the lil' speakers. Treat the Hawk's right, and they will reward you with the kind of aural awesomeness that can usually only be had from monkey coffins that cost in excess of 10 grand. Real good stuff.

Oh yeah .. I also run a set of P3ESR's on my desktop. :) I feel like the voicing of these speakers is nearly perfect for near-field/casual listening applications. I've been running my set (which are wrapped en' beautiful Santos Rosewood) for over a year now. Lovin' it.. :)

Not sure what we-awoke this thread (nuclear testing in the "Ring of Fire" in the Pacific, perhaps?)... but looking back, I am kind of surprised that I didn't at least mention the Allison Ones that I have. They are very, very good loudspeakers - very typical of their era in some ways, but utterly unique in others.

My three are my first 'good' speaker, and my still current last two speakers. From last to best.

1. Pioneer CS-A700, I had so much fun during the 70s and into the early 80s with those speakers, plus they sounded pretty good.
2. Aerial Acoustics 7T, currently used as the fronts in my HT/surround sound system. My first, to me, high end speaker.
3. Magico S5, most likely the last speaker I will ever buy. These things are phenomenal. They are so accurate, whether playing low with a string quartet, or blasting at an obscene level with rock, they sound great. I am just amazed at how effortlessly they play loud. Tonight they will help me evaluate the new remastered Led Zeppelin 96/24 downloads.

Thanks. I have heard incredible things about them although I have yet to hear them myself.

I actually own a pair of the original PSB Stratus speakers (precusor to the Stratus Bronze, Silver, and Gold models).

BlueFox
06-07-2014, 12:01 AM
I will vouch for the PSB Synchrony One speakers. They are just a tad less than the Aerial Acoustics, and are half the price. After I got the Aerials, the PSBs moved into the HT/surround system. Now they are the surround speakers, but the PSB Synchrony One Center still reigns, and meshes well with the Aerials in the front.

Legacy Focus 20/20's
Polk SDA 1.2
Polk SRT

You may be wondering why the SRT isn't in the 2nd spot. I always thought the SRT's were fantastic on HT but fell short on music. The 1.2's handled both with more finesse imho. Have had just about every vintage Polk speaker grace my living room at one point in time or another. The 2.3's and 1.2's are the stand outs to me.

I'll never toss a pair of speakers in the dump again. Have you ever actually PAID for anything? With money?

The current B&Ws are the best speakers I have owned for double duty
The modded 2Bs were best for 2ch, but required a lot of power and were placement picky
RTA 8Ts are the first I bought and are probably the best of both worlds. Super for both 2 ch and HT.

Dealer was in Dallas so it was easy to get ears on them in this area. They are damn nice speakers.

For me I would have to divide it into two groups because the SRS speakers for me are a different breed all together.

1. SRS 1.2tl
2. SRT
3.SRS 2 p/b

1. Polk Lsi25
2. ADS L810
3. Sony SSK90ED
