Have you ever had way too many speakers and didnt want to rid of any ? I find myself to the point i like them all ! Wife thinks im nuts !! Im thinking of finishing off basement for another small music room to hide..i have a few sets of spare speakers that are just sitting in limbo & HATE the thoughts of weeding them out:sad: am i alone here ?
The problem with speakers is that they're fairly large.
The up side of traditional "monkey coffin" designs is that they make pretty good stands to put other equipment (or even more speakers) on top of :-)
I have that very problem. The wife has solved it to a point. To speakers come in the house. Two speakers have to leave the house. The upside is I can have as many as I want in the garage. Good luck. D
I can't give you any advice as I currently have the following in my house:
2x Monitor 70 SII
2x Monitor 30 SII
2x Klipsch Synergy Sub10
1x DSW MicroPro2000
Until the girlfriend moved in with 2 kids, I had SDA 1.2, SDA 2.3, Carver amazing original, Vandersteen 3a, Vandersteen 2ce sig, JM Labs 815, Polk 10b, JBL L150 ( I actually miss the JBL's. They are my I regret selling speaker) JBL L100, and a set of norman.
LOL just bought a pair of 5jr's just because they came available! Dont really need them BUT THEY WERE AVAILABLE!
I have nice monitor 10's sda 2a's and a real nice pair of srs2's sitting in my home in New Jersey with my x-wife. They just sit around waiting for me to come rescue them. I have finally put the PSB T Towers to work in my living room and my SF GPD are my primary speakers in my listening room.
Five pair of speakers and use two, not too bad I bet compared to all the nuts around here.
The SRS2's should be sold to someone so they can enjoy them. I'd hate to part with them though.......... typical? YES
Let see currently I have a set of SRS 2s, CRSs, Monitor 10s, LSiM 703s, DCM Timewindow 3s, ZU Omens, DCM Timeframe 350s and 400s, and Magnepan MMGs. I definitely know where you are coming from!

Holey moley. Lol speaker dream land
Perhaps listing all of them here would be therapeutic and help you on the road to recovery. Don't forget to put prices next to them.:twisted::cheesygrin:
Well, I think George has just convinced me that I don't have enough speakers! Even though I do have a couple of closets that have the following in them waiting for their rotation:
HH Scott S-11
Paradigm 7se MK? (don't remember the model number 8" two way)
Polk TSI-300 (waiting for their chance when I decide to go 7.1)
Realistic MC1000 (nothing special, all mids and highs, almost no real bass--but nice wood finish, came with receiver)
Realistic Nova 7B and Nova 8s
Minimus 7W (wood finish, the classiest of the 7s, also have a black aluminum pair on an STA 700)
SDA 2B (not currently on the Tube amp, but soon to be rotated in)
Monitor 10As (waiting for grills so they can move to a supplementary two channel in the main HT room)
Dayton Audio B652
There are probably others!
CSW Model Six
As per mhardy. A lot of the above is stacked three pairs high and attached to various vintage receivers or integrateds:
Harman Kardon and so on.
And, it goes without saying that my wife thinks I'm a little mad? Fortunately I have a finished basement, an upstairs office and a HT room on the first floor, oh...and closet space! lol

Holy crap! I thought I was bad. :-)
Currently down to:
Dahlquist DQ-20 (2 sets)
Acoustat Spectra 1100
Polk RM-3000 sub/sat
Reading this thread is, in and of itself, therapeutic.
I now know how far I have to go to feel that I'm going over the top! The wall is very, very high! :smile:
I don't have that issue as I'd rather sell them and put the money toward something else, then sell those and put the money towards something else, then sell those and put the money towards something else.
Is there a thread that's the opposite to this one? I'm sure I'm not the only one with that problem..
Somebody should start that thread because, bad as hoarding might be, and I'm not saying it "is"; the SPEED with which some people here move through speakers and equipment makes the Enterprise seem like it's not even pushing impulse power.

I've listened to my KLH 17s for almost a couple of years and they still surprise me, on occasion.
..we would probably cry. Lol

Notice that I am not sharing a laundry list of the loudspeakers at my house...
I do get Polks the old fashioned way, though - we grow 'em...
LOL! That's awesome!

Ya just gota imagine how much money you could have if ya sold all those off for more cool audio equipment!
