I have speakers in 5 different rooms in my home and run each regularly and sometimes concurrently, for a/b tests.
I have yet to find any 1 speaker that works best in all rooms. There is a lesson to be learned there. My big OHM 5s are probably the most versatile. They have 4 three way level adjustments on board each to help tune the sound to different rooms of all sizes.
I have bigger rooms and smaller rooms. I have one fairly well optimized larger room and one small. I also have three others that are less optimized but work quite well for more casual listening. The best sound in my larger optimized room is with my larger OHM 5s and in the smaller room, probably with my smaller OHM 100s. My Dynaudio monitors are not quite as full range but also sound pretty optimal otherwise in the smaller room, though the tonality is somewhat different than the OHMs.
I like the sound in my optimized rooms as well or better than most anything else I have heard at shows, dealers, and elsewhere. WHich is best? WHo knows. Its all quite good.
Without question the Polymer Audio MKS. It is not subjectively the best sounding, it is also simply in a whole other universe in terms of construction and engineering. All other loudspeakers I have owned seem amateur in comparison.
The Polymer MKS has concluded the search for the elusive "best". It very hard to describe the incredible leap in musical realism and the way it connects the listener to the music. Now, I am just trying different amplifiers. So far the best result has been driving it with the Dartzeel but it is a little underpowered for these speakers. So im on a search for an amp that has that sweetness and smoothness of the Dartzeel but with more power and damping factor. Next week, I am getting delivery of the Soulution 710 which is recommended by the manufacturer.

I'm wondering if there's any interest in bookshelf speakers these days.
With the flagging of audio product in high end audio, it seems that speakers are not well received.
I have a bookshelf speaker, ready to market, that's small, yet amazing. It's about 11% larger than my LSA 1's which are currently sold internationally, and better n some ways than the LSA 2's.
Just let me know if there is any interest. I'll email privately or plublicly.

The best one's I've heard in my home were the pair I built for myself featuring a Scanspeak Revelator midrange.
I call them "Byzantium" because their shape reminds me of a Byzantine arch.
They're a true 3-way with time aligned baffle, 12" woofer, 15" passive radiator, 5.25" mid and 28mm dome tweeter. Response from 20Hz to 20KHz +- 1.5dB. Powered by 500W amp.
For most people, it is likely to be there current speakers. If you are making changes, hopefully it is for the better. I have chosen speakers carefully and all the ones I have had, have been good buys and I have enjoyed them.
Yes, my current speakers are the best by a good margin, they are Daedalus Audio DA-RMAs. I have had them for 4 years and can honestly say, they are my last speakers, though I hope to have the latest wiring upgrade, retro fitted some time
The Raidho D1's as compared to the Dyn C1 Signature. Extremely clear and accurate sounding. Background is super black. Best separation of instruments and vocals I've ever heard. Imaging is pinpoint. The ribbon tweeter is super smooth. Plays really nice at all listening levels. Compared to the Dyn C1's the bass really drops off at 50hz where the Dyns were good to about 38hz. Dyns are a little more dynamic sounding. Speaker placemnet with the D1's is a lot more critical and require to be separated farther with lots of toe-in. I preferred the Dyns with very little to no toe-in. Not sure how many hrs are on the D1's but they were my dealers demos he got in late April and I have put about 60hrs on them. Haven't heard any change in sound (yet).
Hey Larry get out of my thread ..I have a good lawyer who will suit for damages ..we all have good lawyers don't we ..how much is your speaker selling for and can I get an industry accommodation? Every one needs to ask for an industry accommodation these days. Hell we have all been close enough to the industry haven't we?
