Fisher 104 - highly modded, great sound, my main speakers, a gift from a friend going overseas
 
Mission 70 - amazingly musical, gives up only the deep bass to the Fishers at half the size
 
Mission 781 - they look and sound like updated 70's, woofer on top, tweeter on the bottom
 
Proton 300/301 - powered, bi-amped, a bit too forward, good computer speakers
 
NHT Super Zero - piano black, a bit beat up, good sound, great with a subwoofer
 
my first speakers - still have 'em, put in new drivers, haven't listened to in years/decades

Totem Rainmakers. They're my first hifi speakers (upgraded from a pair of Infinity Primus 150's). I bought them a couple of years ago, and am still satisfied.

All running off Hk 3390. I know its mid-fi and the placement is poor, but I enjoy it! And thats the point, right? :D

 
...What's in the glowing cabinet?
 


CDs, a Muse program, and some childhood memories :D

Are you sure there isn't a CSI lab in there? I'm pretty sure there's a CSI lab in there. :wink:

Just added a pair of Cain & Cain Abby's to my speaker arsenal this past weekend.  I've read good things about them and have been curious about them for a while, and when one popped up for sale somewhat locally, I jumped. 
 
Am I ever glad I did!  Right now, they're driven by a simple tubed integrated (Nohr SE-9) pushing, like, 9 watts or so, and the speakers sound fabulous.  Very un-hifi; very musical.  And they look so damn cool!

from a humble pair of m-audio studiophile monitors (that any day now should cede their real estate to some audio engine 2) to beloved magnepan MMGs and up to the large full-size true-ribbon magnepans, the 2.5R.
 
gone through a lot of others, but the only ones I miss are the first ones I built (from a kit) - I took the bass reflex housings to a car painter and had them sprayed white, a few layers. I think they would withstand nuclear attack :wink: my brother still uses them, 23 years later...
 
ps - remember though that all sorts of gadgets these days have speakers of a sort, whether it be your laptop or desktop or smartphone or car - not to mention the kitchen radio... I wonder if that's why I love IEMs...!

I recently swapped out my Focal Elektra 1028 Be for a pair of Triangle Magellen Cello's.
