Okay gentleman just how many speakers are occupying space in your homes? We'll count individually to take in account center channels and mono speakers.

1 pair JBL S312 (3-way)
1 pair B&W series 2000/4 (3-way)
2 pairs EV S40 monitors (2-way)
1 Kef Q-95 center
1 Yamaha 320 subwoofer

Maybe 1 pair JBL L40 monitors to come (if I win on eBay).

I use the EV's, Kef center and Yamaha sub for my HT (which is rarely used these days).

Using my newer S312's for my 2 ch setup.

B&W's out of action (one of the tweeters has blown - haven't gotten around to fixing yet).

I like this thread!

1 pair Dahlquist DQ-10s
2 pair Klipsch Cornwalls
6 pairs Magnepan MGI Improved
1 pair Tympani IIIB
4 pairs Magnepan MMG
2 pair Bose 901 (Thor, no matter how much grief you get about your CVs it pales in comparison to what you'd get if you admitted to owning Bose).
1 pair Apogee Mini Grand Subs
1 CV LW-15 Sub

and 8 or so pairs of 'mid-fi' bookshelves.... I've got these all stacked on racks against one wall and the visual effect is kinda funny.

and if I'm any kinda lucky at all....
I'll soon be picking up 1 pair Apogee Full Range (300 lb, 0.3 ohm, tri-ampable ribbons!)

maybe then I'll stop collecting speaks.

nah

ahhh hemmmmmm..... it's not just "gentlemen" around here any more ;)

I am addicted to ESL's. I just can't see myself ever going back to dynamic drivers.
I have 5 speakers currently.
I have one pair of Innersound ISIS and an Innersound proto type ribbon/transmission line speaker. The other two are my surrounds, and I am too embarrased to tell you what they are. They are next on my list to replace and will most likely get another pair of ISIS.

Hello angela,

I will admit that I've been ignoring ESLs for awhile now... part of that is I don't know if I want to 'start' with the vintage classic Quad or something new or DIY.

You mentioned a 'prototype' and I wasn't aware that InnerSound had one. What is it? You mentioned only one, is it a Center Channel?

Hi Eargo,

You need to check out ESL's ! I am telling you, the speed, the detail, the pressence - you just can't get that with dynamic drivers (too much stuff working against one another). IMHO :)

Roger has been working on new surround speaker design - Ribbon panels and his famous transmission line woofer.

I asked him to let me try this speaker but with the ribbon turned 90 degrees (on it's side) to allow me to use it as a center channel (lying sideways above the TV instead of standing vertically). So I became a beta tester and would give Roger my impressions and feedback on it's performance. SInce I have a projection TV, I was not worried about all the magnets that surround the ribbon tweeter. This is not his center channel design, but I just asked him to modify so that I could try it as that. The center channel that is under development uses cone tweeters, but a much cooler, faster design than most.
He is also working on some HUGE Refrigerator size (Let me hear a"tool man" snort here) sub woofer.

I don't know when he plans to release the new products, but I can tell you I have never dealt with such great service and sincere compassion for the music and the customer.

http://www.innersound.net/images/innersound.jpg

I auditioned Martin Logan Prodigy's and I am telling you for strong bass response and quickness, the ISIS beat them. And as far as price ($2500 vs $10,000), it made the choice even sweeter!
They have a big brother called EROS and these are very wonderful as well. My listening room is just not big enough for the EROS.

thanks for asking

Unfortunately you still need "dynamic drivers" for your bass and low end.

angela
07-05-2002, 10:04 PM
But the ISIS have woofers with the transmission line design that Roger has perfected. The bass response is outstanding.

eargo

Hello Angela,

I don't think anyone here is pulling your leg. It seems that most of the posts regarding speaks mention the classic dynamic driver design models. Thor might be rubbing in the fact that alternatives often incorporate classic technology but you've got to remember that his pride and joy are is EuroMod CV's and awhile back he ate a bit of criticism.

I don't know how you 'discovered' stats but it probably paralleled how I discovered planers. You don't see them or pay attention to them until one day when (for whatever reason) you give them a listen and if they've been set up properly you're hooked. If you remember that time, then you'll remember that the term 'dynamic driver' wasn't needed until you tried to figure out why or what the differences were between traditional speaks and the alternatives. I think that maybe there is genuine interest among the readers here in the alternatives...

Thor,

Yes, the woofer is a cone. The transmission line is a design that seeks to 'control' and 'extend' the TL'd speaker. Quickly, a simple acoustic suspension and/or a bass reflex color the low frequencies. When blending a dynamic driver to a faster transducer (like an electrostatic, magneplaner or ribbon) there is often a perceived 'lag' in the initial low sound wave and the accompanying harmonic mid/high and thus incoherence.

The current ongoing problem with Stats, Planers and Ribbons is producing the lower octave/s. One of the premier ribbon manufacturers (Apogee) tried to solve this problem with two different designs... a 'full range' series with relatively huge ribbons and a hybrid incorporating dynamic drivers (cones). Of historic note, the original Apogee (a full range 3 ribbon design) was designated the 'Flagship' or 'THE Apogee' or simply 'Full-Range' until they built the 'Grand'. The Grand incorporates cone subs with 3 ribbons.... further note, there were only 25 made. Carver built 'the Amazing'... another hybrid.

Magnepan builds magneplaner speaks (and was partly responsible for the demise of Apogee ala patent infringements). Magneplaner speakers generally go as low as 40-50hz. There is a model (Tympani IVa) that will go as low as 30hz. Magnepan has never built a hybrid and as a result, the most popular message board post (relative to Maggies) is 'What Sub should I use?'.

The most 'popular' stat manufacturer is arguably the Martin Logan and most of their designs incorporate a bipolar/cone sub with a stator panel. The ongoing discussion/argument relative to this design is that the Martin Logan models don't blend the cone bass to the stator mids/highs very well (thus the implication of Angela's note about the Isis incorporating TL technology).

Finally, there is a fundamental difference between classic cones and planers/stats... dipolarizationamundo... but that is another discussion for another time.

Or maybe I was sucked into a 'Lucy' discussion (funny, never heard that term before).:dunno:

I wasn't tugging no one's leg I am a genuine noob when it comes to most of this stuff especially high end stuffs. I was simply saying that from what I have read in other posts about Electro stats is that many prefer them but still must turn to a "dynamic driver" to get a full range of sound aka Ward's Martin Logans and his monstrous 18" subs that he uses. I was simply standing up for "dynamic drivers" since angela said she would never go back to them but the pic she shows they have a combo of a dynamic driver and a elrctro stat.

Perhaps the reason is psycho-acoustic, the way we perceive sound. Human hearing is primarily attuned to approx 3,500 Hz. The 'most important' freq range is the mid-range from about one octave below that point (say around 1500 Hz) to about two octaves above that point (oh, let's say 14,000 Hz).
At my age, my upper range of hearing probably drops off very rapidly after 15K or 16K Hz.
The reproduction of sound through the range 1.5K through 15K Hz is what we first notice. Oh, unless someone has a subwoofer cooked up with an old dbx subharmonic synthesizer!
Electrostatics, ribbons, and planars provide the lightest and quickest response, the sound often described as light, airy, pure, exhilerating, sheer, shimmering, etc.
On the downside, they usually lack the ability to deliver the very bottom octaves (not that we really 'hear' them, but because they provide the overtones of the music). They do not 'move' enough to develop the pressure necessary for low tones.
Also, they have tended to be a 'difficult' speaker to drive properly.
Yes, they can be a tremendous listening experience.
I love my Infinity Qb's with their little EMIT tweet, and the HPM supertweet in the HPM-900s. I also find the boron-dome tweet in the P-530 a superb reproducer. So, there are dynamic drivers that produce fine sound.
BTW, I bought my first real 'hi-fi" gear from Gayle Martin when he was working at Keif's in Lawrence, oh a few years ago :D

pete, have amps, anyone want to loan me some difficult speakers?

Not counting a pair of Boston 5" car audio speakers mounted in cheap enclosures for testing unproven receivers and amps. You wouldn't test out a new find on your existing good speakers, now would you? :eek: Good easy way to burnout the voice coils in case there is a failure in the output/protection circuit.

Another way to pretest a recevier's output is to just measure to see if there is any DC output voltage at the output terminals before hooking up the speakers. Should just be no more then some millivolts. Note that the receivers needs to be powered up for this test but there need not be any source playing.

angela
07-08-2002, 12:29 PM
Thor, You're right!
Most, if not all, of the ESL's are "hybrids", consisting of the ES panel and a woofer. With the right design and cross over setting, you get the best of both worlds. The way that I understand it is that the lower frequencies require a larger push-pull excursion (thus the bigger magnet on the cone) for the sound reproduction and does not mate well with the panel, which is quick/fast/short excursions.

Hi eargo,

Those original Apogees were never true all ribbon speakers, the tweeters (and mids) in the 3 way systems were true ribbons but teh bass section was in reality a magnetic planar, just like a Maggie, hence the patent problems.

Magnepan have never built planar/dynamic hybrids but they have and still do build hybrids (if we define hybrid as a speaker using two or more dissimilar driver technologies).

The current top models; 3.6 and 20.1 use a combination of true ribbons and planar drivers.

The big 20.1 has bass response to 25hz.

The Genesis 1+ and Boston Acoustic A100 pairs are refoaming projects I've just started working on (the A100's were set out with someone's trash, and the 1+'s cost me $10 just a few days ago). Before I found them set out with a used-audio store's trash, someone replaced the 10" woofers in the EGO's with Radio Shack drivers (yuck!). The EPI A70's are the pair I've owned the longest, since 1979. My home theater uses the EPI 120c's for mains and A70's for surrounds and the Polk center channel speaker (I can't use a subwoofer in my apartment...)

another vote for cool thread!

here at the office:

Fisher XP 56b
EPI T/E 120 :D
Realistic Mimimus ? (bigger than 7s)
Genesis 110

GE ? (6.5" tri-ported two ways)
AR 8
EV Interface/2
Bose 601/II
Bose 301
Bose Acoustimass 7 (5 double cubes, subwoofer)

That's all I can remember for now...after reading that list of 38
total speakers, all I can say is...

1. JBL L300 Walnut

I also have as raw drivers:

1 pair of SEAS 13 inch woofers (CA33R4Y-DC) similar to the ones in the Rogers L35B (33F-WKA) except they are coated paper and have a dual voice coil.

Many, many KEF B110 SP1003's and T27 SP1032's and LS3/5a type crossovers from Falcon Acoustics in Britain. Can you tell I like that design?

That's too many speakers!!

So far only a pair of Polk Model 7s, a pair of Infinity RSa's and some modern stuff.

Interesting discussion between Angela and others. Back in the late '50s, early '60s I came across some fellows building ES panels. They simply painted perforated panels with conductive paint and using insulating gaskets stretched conductive plastic membranes between two 1 x 2 foot panels.

They drove these panels directly off the plates of a PP tube amp with the membrane attached to the centre point of the output, so the quality of output tranny was of no concern. They had mounted four panels on a curved rack so that the final "speaker" was a 4 x 4 array or 16 panels. It had the "airy" sound and great transients, and the bass seemed to be there. I was saving up to buy a bunch of their panels when they were closed down for some patent infringement.

Of course with 300 volts on the panels I imagine it would have been advisable to keep the house kinda dry. ;)

Wanted to show off the re-foam of the RSa's but damned if I get the icon next to the browse box.

Boston Acoustics A60s
2 pair Minimus 7s
1 Mission 700
and 1 ElectroVoice Regency

and I just dropped off some Fisher 105s and Lafayette Criterion 777s at the SA.

OK, lets see how' all this has changed since May.

I've sold the AR-4axs, Ohm C2s, the Minimus 7s and parted out the Regency, bought and sold a set of JBL LE15s and 375s, some Infinitys, Pioneers and parted a second Regency.

I've added the following.

On the patio:

A set of small 2 way AudioPhase speakers ,

In the garage there:

Klipsch La Scalas (1975 black lacquer version w/full grill)
EV Aristocrats in walnut cabinets (full blown 3 ways!)
A second set of Mirage 360s
A second set of Small Advents
2 more sets of EPI 100s
Dynaco A-25s
Dynaco A-25xls
Fried Model Q's
A single Ohm L
And yesterdays AMT Heil AMT-1a Ms

So 22 -4 + 9 = 27!!!

I guess what amazes me the most is the variety I've accumulated, especially the relatively unique ones like the IMFs, the AMTs, and EPI 500s.

That and the fact that I've assembled such a diverse collection of "keepers" with the East Coast sound Advents, EPIs and Dynacos, The West Coast JBLs (I love rock and blues; crank up "One Way Out" by the Allmans on these babies; YEAH!!!), and the older horn loaded designs in the La Scalas and Aristocrats.

I plan on doing a huge A/B test on some of these one day, but it probably will take hours/days to evaluate all the stars as to overall sound, listenability, fatigue, and breadth of music. They all certainly have their champions and rightfully so.

Too bad I don't have the room to set a huge stack in the corners; the La Scalas on the bottom w/ the AMT-1a Ms, the 4311s and Aristocrats, and on top and a set of stacked Advents on the side.

Could be fun!!! :D :D

I figured I'd better update this because things have certainly changed around my house since my last posting on the speakers I own. I was using 3 pairs of Bose 901 Series VI speakers for my surround system, but I sold all those and replaced them with 3 pairs of Pioneer HPM 100s. So, here goes:

1) 4 pairs of Pioneer HPM 100's
2) 1 pair of Klipsch Forte's
3) 1 pair of Klipsch Forte II's
4) 1 pair of JBL LX-55's (For sale)
5) 1 pair of Acoustic Research AR-9's (1980 edition)
6) 1 pair of Bose 601 Series I's (still the best Bose ever made)
7) 1 pair of Pioneer CS-M755's
8) 1 pair of Pioneer CS-X500-K's (rear R/L surrounds)
9) 1 Pioneer CS-C250-K (center channel surround)
10) 1 JBL PB-10 150 Watt Floor-firing Subwoofer

Numbers are indicative of mix of SS and tube equipment in various configurations throughout house. Collection began in 1968. Objective is (increasingly) high efficiency and flexibility (Cornwalls), no matter the source, as have grown bored with dragging large speaker boxes across the room and stacking for storage.

You said "...in your house" or something to that effect. So I should mention my tenant/house-mate has 5 OGKW's. ("Only God Knows What.")

And if PC speakers count, I should mention 5 Altec Lansing's (Don't recall model numbers. They're 4 cheap little plastic, featherweight jobbies and a cheap plastic sub, so I don't much care about them.)

So that's 12, 17 or 22, depending on what qualifies.

I am the only Thiel owner that has posted on this thread!

That's odd. I auditioned a pair of nice Thiels recently. It seems that it takes a really good amp to drive them well, after trying it with a couple of different amps they had in-store. Maybe it has to do with more extreme output impedance variation with wide-band drivers. Still, they sounded great with a really good tube amp! Phase/time coherence really does make a big difference in the imaging.

I haven't seen any other mention of Phase Research speakers either -- also phase/time coherent technology, of a different design. Anybody else even heard of these? How about Clements Audio? (Same designer, different company name).

I use my 7.2's with Pass 1.2 class A monoblocks. These amps are really nice and are in the same class as the speakers.

daev
07-23-2004, 02:57 PM
Well,
I live in a modest home, not a warehouse.
But I do have a lot of different systems for different purposes.
For example, my office has 1 pair for critical stereo monitoring of mixes, another 2 pairs on a separate mixer for multichannel monitoring, 1 pair for pleasure listening (on a tube amp), and a small 5 speaker home theater setup for late night watching.

And then there is the home theater in the living room, and the other rooms in the house, and the shop, and the garage, and outdoors...

Fortunately, I have a wonderfully tolerant wife who also loves music. :angel:

I move them around occasionally, but currently I have the KLH 6s in my workshop powered by a Scott LK-72B. The Polks are used with my PC powered by a Pioneer VSX-9500S. 4 of the large Advents, the small Advent and the a/d/s sub are for my home theater system. The 901 IVs are in the living room on a Sony STR-GX69ES.

Makes sense to me, but then I'm one of the "ridiculous" ones.

I have distinct preferences for speakers based on what I'm doing, just as I have distinct preferences for microphones based on the recording or sound situation.

I guess I see it the same way I use autos: I drive the Camry for long distances and to the grocery store, I drive the 69 Camaro around town and for fun, and I drive the beater truck for hauling mulch. And I walk whenever possible. :D

Perhaps the balance is I don't collect megabuck cables or roll tubes?

Wow, some of you guys must have warehouses. I've already run out of room and need to divest myself of some of mine. As far as those I've owned...that would fill a few pages. Carver Amazings, KEFs, Thiels, Magnepans, Eminent Technology, Infinitys, many Klipsch models (LaScalas, Chorus, Cornwall, Heresy, KLF-20, Quartets), Spicas (Angelus, TC-50, TC-60), NHTs, Legacy Focus, Frieds, Boston, Pinnacle, and I'm sure I'm forgetting a few...

At least one pair in each room makes sense to me. Plus one -- or even two-- 5.1 surround systems. I'm kinda shooting for that, but my current house is small. I could squeeze maybe 16 pair into it.

Let's see -- for a moderately large house, one might have 6 pair in the living room (HT 5.1 plus alternate pair), 6 pair in family room or designated HT room (same deal), 2 pair in master bedroom, 1 pair each in den, bathroom, kitchen, dining room, up to 3 other bedrooms, garage and workshop. That's 23 pair. OK, that works. And I'd really envy that home.

Now, 40+ pairs would require more than yer average mansion. I'd be adding a 7.1 HT system. I guess a good number of them must be stacked up in the garage and/or workshop.

07-26-2004, 11:33 AM
Oops! That's 7 pair in the HT rooms, which would make for a grand total of 25 pair, not 23. (If you count the center and sub as one pair.)

The only pair that have nothing wrong with them is one of my pairs of Advents. All of the others have at least one thing that needs to be fixed. I hope to eventually upgrade all of their crossovers. After that I will probably get rid of a few pairs and keep the best sounding ones. I already know I'm going to get rid of the KLH twenties and possibly the AR-2ax's.

That's around 20? And a pair of Cerwins at the girlfriends', and some others in various states in a closet. Eek.

This, of course, only counts the home audio stuff, not the PA and guitar gear....

I thought, hmmm, I'm pretty sure I have over 20 (for the poll above) but I better count.

48.

Down 4 from a few days ago--

Not counting the cars, or the monitor speakers for the 2-ways, or the ones that are missing components.

Guess I did have over 20....

No time to list right now, but at least 4 more will go away this week (sold). So it's more like 44.

Too many. Some of them are going to show up here as near give-aways... Or they'll be donated locally (expensive to ship). Range is from 40's tweed faced to full blown concert cabinet PA speakers.

Hi, I'm new here. I found this site while doing some research on some speakers.
I have a question; You guys keep talking about vintage stuff. My dad owns a pair of Infinity's Quantum Line Source 1's.
http://www.bobbyshred.com/infinity/QLS.html

But for low frequency drivers that are separate I was looking into these: http://www.genesisloudspeakers.com/prd_ServoSub2_12t.html

But you guys keep talking about the dynamic drivers (which I think these woofers have).

What is your recommendations though, I'm always interested in what other people know about speakers.

1 big sun box with 2 12 inch altec 417 or something like that drivers :lmao:

i think i need more big speakers
oh i have a CRATE BOX AND IT HAS 2 15 s in it for emergencies :naughty:
ahhaha
and the self made cabinets have EV crossovers -8 ohns 800 hz( did this little number around 1979 -been luggin em around a long time yeah!

::also layin around are ***2 412 B ALTEC BI FLEXES *** :
i am tryin to figure out what i am goin to do with em -maybe put em the shower so i can dance and scrub :no:
i am lookin desperately FOR SOME SPECS ON THESE ALL THE LIKELY PAGES either wont give me access or cant -dont work or the search results take me to a page and isnt any literature i can easily find on these bi flexes :cry: -so i am in a quandry as to whether to keep em :scratch2:
DOES ANYONE HERE KNOW MUCH ABOUT THEM -ALREADY BEEN TO THE UNOFFICIAL ATEC HOME PAGE AND some official lansing pages -I THINK but cant find that model
i have an opinion from an AK member and he says they are inefficent and my G 8000s or big kenwood that i am buyin will fry em
i was goin to put them in the 2 big cabinets and take out the gutair speakers but NO I DONT KNOW CAUSE THE GUY I GOT EM FROM -sells vintage-known him 20 plus years says they are efficient and i didnt pay too much etc but he will take em back if i dont want em
SO --ALL YOU SPEAKER PEOPLE THAT SURELY KNOW MORE THAN ME I AM DOIN RESEARCH HERE SO I CAN MAKE AN INFORMED DECISION
WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR INSIGHTS AND OR EXPERIENCE OR ANY KINDA POINTING TO LINKS ETC
thankyou
charmaine

ps the z9s are still in a trial phase here as my remaining G 8000 HAS A PROB and i cant fully test these big dogs -i have heard they were kubiklis or kabukis etc -but i had em on last nite -- and i was playin with some tone controls -the EQS are off right now -long story -and they were startin to sound kinda interesting even at low vol
my horns are waiting an L PAD EA for attenuation -something i just learned here
and i was advised by an AK member to try 1200 hz 8 ohm altec crossovers instead of the electrovoice 800hz 8 ohm that i have -so
whaddya think --:: i need some more INPUT
AND PROB MORE MONEY I DONT KNOW
----- i hope i can write allthis without tickin anyone off
but you people know so much and i dont know hardly anything 0i just happen to have all this stuff =-=miracle i havent blown it all up

Ok, now, let me get this straight. I have 6 pairs, or a total of 12 speakers. You have 54. Now, who is buying White Vans and Yorks? I have Dynacos, Wharfedales, Advents, Infinitiys, Polks and Jensens. I had to pick my "worst" speakers to sell and they were a pair of KLH sixs. And don't you own a pair of Advents that I didn't buy? Oh, and don't you own a pair of Pioneers that you bought from me!?

But what I really want to know, did you get those SDAs!!

Inventory today is 33 speaker systems. The best ones are the Infinity Quantum II's. In A/B comparisons with Definitive Technology systems, sound is VERY close, but Infinities are stronger in the bass range below 28 Hz. They don't, however handle as much power as larger Def-Tech's. The worst ones are the Bose 201's. There must be something wrong with your KLH Model 6's if they are the worst ones you have. These little puppies sound better than half the list below. My wife is very tolerant, but near the limit!!:

Infinity Quantum II 1 pair
Infinity Quantum III 1 pair
Infinity RSIII 1 pair
AR-3 2 pair
AR-3a 1 pair
AR-2a 1 pair
AR-2 single speaker
AR-9LSi 1 pair

hi Uriah Heep...I see that you have an Ohm Walsh 2 speaker.
Someone is selling for about 200 USD. I have only seen the advertisement and not the speakers yet. Can you comment on your pair of Ohm Walsh re: ball park market value and performance of the speakers. Are they really good as posted elsewhere in this forum?

Thanks
Foo

uriah Heep
06-16-2005, 08:45 PM
Lordfoo,
I'd say $200 is a fair price. I picked mine up at a garage sale for $35 without really knowing much about them. I would say the are very clear and precise in the high range with decent bass. I picked up ADS 1230's at the same sale and they have similar highs and crisper bass with their dual 8" woofers. The Walsh 2's are excellent speakers for vocals and acoustics but may not be the optimum rock and roll speaker.

Old Richard Allen's I pulled apart to see how they were put together.
Some 80's Technics I pulled apart to see how they were put together
A Pair of NZ made Floorstanders with Peerless/Vifa parts that I pulled apart to see how they were made ( These were rebuilt with new crossovers and they work very well).
A pair of surround speakers I pulled apart.
A Pair of Current Welling ( Chinese built ) floorstanding speakers I got 2nd hand cheap to (you guessed it ) pull apart to seewhat sort of quality retails for $1299.(not that great, but better than I expected) I did modify these a little and they are doing service in our bedroom.
Some old 80's 3 ways doing great service in the Car shed ( Untouched).
Various other speakers Kef etc for Home theatre.

MY own Dual Woofer 3 way floorstanders that I built and love.

kegger,

It would appear that you are the single most insane person of a very loony bunch here! How many pole barns have you built to house all these???

Have you seen the latest B&W offerings? The 801 has been replaced by the new 801D, with a "diamond dome" tweeter (whatever that is). Supposed to be the greatest tweeter innovation since sliced aluminum. And of course it would be a tad more expensive. My 803's have been replaced by two different upgrades. They were obsolete by the time I dragged 'em home! NONE of the original N800 series is being released anymore.

Not bad considering I started February of 2004.

Kevin - Welcome to AK! Looks like you fit in pretty well here.

I"ve been wondering about those nohr speakers. I've heard they're really good, but there's no way to audition them unless you go to Thailand or you know somebody close by who's already taken the chance on them. What do you think of them? Do you have the ones that look like some kind of Polynesian drum on its side? (That's supposed to be their top line.)

Update on my meager collection:


2 pair Phase Research Model R's
2 pair B&W N805's
1 pair Polk RT16's (will be selling - hopefully soon)

1 B&W HTM2 (center)
1 B&W ASW 800 (sub)

You said "...in your house" or something to that effect. So I should mention my tenant/house-mate has 5 OGKW's. ("Only God Knows What.")

And if PC speakers count, I should mention 5 Altec Lansing's (Don't recall model numbers. They're 4 cheap little plastic, featherweight jobbies and a cheap plastic sub, so I don't much care about them.)

So that's 12, 17 or 22, depending on what qualifies.

Now I gotta add my new B&W N803's. Oh - and my roommate moved out a couple months ago, and took his Pioneer surround system with him. :sigh: (That's OK - mine's better :D )

So that's now just 14, not counting cheap pc speakers.

So far, I think brainsmasher and kegger are likely tied for the lead at around 82 each if I counted right. (Not including other speakers mentioned but not actually included), with probably no-one even remotely interested in trying to catch up.

Must now add a pair of very nasty -- bit of a story behind that, but may not be appropriate for AK -- Bose 301 Series II. Surprisingly, they don't sound too terrible and sitting out into the room on top of my Tannoys at about standing ear level they work for FM alright. They're almost fun to listen to, but that may be because of the stigma attached to them and the fact that I like to go against the stream a bit. Besides, these were made the same year I was, so they have to have something good going for them. :)

A good friend of mine visited this weekend just to hang and to compare his speakers (diy North Creek Rhythms) to my better speakers. After a few hours of comparative listening and trying different combinations of electronics and such, we decided to order up some pizza. While waiting, the crazy idea of taking a picture of all the speakers stored in my apartment came up as a way to spend the time. Well, here's the result, also known as the "Wall of Sound" for being over 6' tall and well over 12' wide.

Not everything is pictured, of course. The stack wouldn't stably support anymore speakers (the Infinities are front heavy and want to fall over if anything heavy is put on top) and while debating how to continue, the pizza arrived and interest was promptly lost. So, not pictured (but in my apartment at the time) are a pair of Infinity Reference Studio Monitors (rear channels), a pair of Dynaco A-25s (computer system), Boston Acoustics A-70s, 1 x Knight KN-830 in large DIY cab, and of course, the laughable Sony SS-U531AVs. The others I've listed in this thread before are either out on loan or stored elsewhere. The Maggies, Bose, BAs, and that funky one with the sparkly grill left with my friend to go to different recipients.

Still, it was fun to create this stack. My goal for when I eventually get a larger place, is to rebuild the stack, bigger and better, and connect everything up at once and crank the tunes ... and spend the next three years paying off the noise ordinance violation fines.

So, who wants to play, name that speaker?

Edit: Oh yeah, I forgot about the pair of Smaller Advents that didn't make it into the pic either.
