B&W
post #21 of 67
I voted for B&W. I also love Totems.

My vote would go to Wilson Audio

Not hardly a big name, but take a look here-
Transmission Audio Inc.

be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page. The M6 is a true exercise in excess.

Another favorite-
VMPS :: Ribbon loudspeakers & subwoofers

Too many good choices, but I had to vote for B&W in the end. Although at any given price point you might be able to find something slightly better for your tastes, it's tough to find a speaker that does such a fantastic all-around job and that is so consistent - I can't think of a single model in the lineup I wouldn't want to own.

So far B&W Speakers are totally blowing away every other speaker in this poll, but id believe its because more people heard of them, and not that everyone who voted has auditioned every brand and came to this conclusion.

As a proud owner of a pair of 803S speakers I felt compelled to vote for B&W.

I like B&W's just because they are the giant of the high end loudspeaker business. Probably the most successful high end speaker maker. They probably sell more speakers than all of the high end brands (I think I heard that) While not every speaker they make are worthy of top praise, I look forward to hearing their speakers and they rarely disappoint. So I voted B&W. They often make speakers that sound emotional maybe at some expense of accuracy.

However, I think Vandersteens are awesome, and I own Dynaudio active speakers and have been a long time fan of Paradigm. If I was buying for myself, I would likely buy something else rather than the higher end B&W's because I think they are too pricey compared to other speaker makers. They are like the Rolex of speakers. Good watches Rolex are, but they keep raising the prices so they are no longer very good value compared to other brands

I, too, was surprised that B&W was coming in to be by far the favorite, although brand recognition as the reason is fairly idle speculation bordering on "sour grapes". I lusted after B&Ws for the twenty-five years that I had my Dahlquists and then Frieds. I'm happy as can be with my present B&W 800 Nautilus.
