Right now, mine is the Sonus Faber Cremona Auditor (original). I like that it’s still a Franco Serblin design. It is such a warm and romantic sounding speaker.

I really would like an active pair of speakers someday. Perhaps the KEF LS50 Wireless, because they’re quite affordable, but I would really love to get a pair of full-range active Dynaudio speakers someday.

The pair I've been lusting over lately is the Klipsch Heresy IV.

Love my pair of active Speakers.
Its the Elac Air-X 407 oiled walnut.
Very clean and resolving sound paired with the Audio GD R28. :)

Warning:

don't get sucked into the KEF LS50 Wirless bull. Not worth it at all. Overpriced.

I still use JBL LSR305 even after demoing the overpriced LS50 wireless.

I'm sure I would be if I had Klipschorn money! I intend to finance a pair of Heresy IV's this year.

DALI Oberon 3, they have a nice character in the highs that is also even, and the casing is bright wood and the front cover fabric is a bit like a grey jeans, behind that you see a bit of white plastic just like the K701 has, triggers a lot of joy for me. But not sure if sound without bi-amped is the best, and I had to tilt-eq out the brightness like crazy with a graphical EQ, tried settings for months, finally happy. No noise floor in near-field, amp is S.M.S.L. SA-36A.

Anyone heard JBL Studio 230? They are listed for around a grand on ebay and I have a new pair that I got for a hundred bucks at Frys day after xmas sale in 2018 and never opened / forgot about. Two sound demo youtubers liked them a lot and both compared to SVS Ultra. Not sure if I even want to open those or not they actually do look sort of like JBL's latest high end bookshelf horn loaded and similar waveguide. Could be a keeper.

Well there is no low-end there, and seems kinda expensive. I'm not sure there is much left from JBL consumer worth buying although I saw they were bringing back some big honkin' monitor style speakers in limited editions.

AVI ADM 9.1 RS with the upgraded tweeters. I hardly listen to my 2 channel setup these days (it’s either my multi channel which does great stereo or headphones), so I should sell the speakers, but I just can’t seem to face letting them go. They can occasionally be a little bass short but otherwise they sound great - specious and dynamic and they are happy to be placed close to walls to make the most of space.

Personally I'm really interested in Spatial Audio's open baffle speakers. It's a shame they're too big for my living room. Maybe someday when I have dedicated listening room.
