    I've got a pair of Spendor A6Rs.

    Just swapped in a McIntosh MA6200 integrated amp and the Spendors seem to respond much better to the American amp than to the Sony TA-1ES I had in before. Maybe its the tone controls and the loudness feature. The Sony sounded better on the Sony SS-HA1s with their supertweeter. Perhaps they were voiced together.

    speakers.png Last night I picked up a pair of Arcaydis SM 35 monitors. A LS3/5A clone. They will replace the KEF LS50's I was using on my desktop system. The KEF's have been promoted to the main system on our new house. I will set them up tonight and report back

    B&W 804S pair hooked up to a Harmon kardon stratophonic all in one system and a hidden Sony CD player. (Should I fear a SAS hit squad for debauching those speakers by hooking them up to the HK?) That's the dining room. The living room has B&W 801 series 80 hooked up to a HK citation twenty-two and the family room will have Living Voice OBX-RWs that will be hooked up to a pair of McIntosh 60's (all are still in boxes other than crossovers for speakers) - I'm just moving in here.

    I have always been a big Fane speaker fan.
    Always built my own.
    In 1980 I made 2 speakers with a pair of Fane 12-50WRMS in each for a mobile disco.
    It was very loud and sounded very good.

    Since then I have built numerous cabinets in various styles with different drivers from 10 inch to 18 inch.
    My favourite listening speaker is a folded horn box with a Fane 12-50WRMS 1980 driver in it.

    I also have a 100 watt Marshall guitar amp.

    My office system is mostly british brands, although probably made in asia for most of it

    Bookshelves Monitor Audio Bronze BX2
    Rotel RA930AX integrated
    Cambridge DacMagic 100 feeded via USB mode 2

    Very rich and clear sounding, almost a bit too much on the highs, reason why I'm switching the amp to a Myryad Z142 to try and listen if its a better match with the Monitor Audio

    Just speakers at my house:

    A pair of Wharfedale W60Es in the living room.
    They have an admirable neutrality about them.

    2 pairs of B&W DM303 bookshelf speakers, one set deployed on a bedroom system.
    The B&Ws are punchy little speakers for such a modest size.
