Can you live with your current speaker until you die?



Yes I can!

In my 40 years of history I had gone through around 15 speakers including

ADS, Altec Lansing, Thiel, Canton, Apogee Duetta Signature(10years), BMW 801, Avalon Ascent, Wilson Audio Watt and Puppy6.

I settled at Pacific Northwest area located just midway between Seattle and Vancouver BC around 6 years ago.

It has a nice western view of Bay and Pacific Ocean with 2 acres lot.

I could play music loud during midnight with no problem to my neighbors as long as I close the windows.

With vaulted big space, my Lansche 4.1 speakers makes a beautiful voice out of classical, Jazz or even new age music.

I had been living with the speaker since 2007.

I do not claim that Lansche 4.1 is the best speaker in the world.

But with clean and pristine treble out of plasma tweeters and pretty good bass out of 2 10 inch driven by internal active amplifier and high efficiency (99db spec, but I believe it to be around 93db), it is hard to find better speaker with overall merit for my house.

The only catch is that it can stop working since it is an active speaker( plasma tweeter and active bass unit).

But I keep having good communication with Henry Dien of Lansche Audio who upgraded plasma tweeters twice at reasonable cost.

I can happily live with Lansche 4.1 speakers at my present house for my life unless serious health issues happen to either me or my speakers.

How about you gentlemen and ladies?

Had any one of you found the speaker for your life?

lmfao... wolf_garcia. Have to admit was the thought when I let go of the 704 set up. Some parts still available, for how much longer?
Always someone put something in the cabinet, change the crossovers and voila, a better sounding speaker but at what cost? Still, just another way looking at some old vintage gear.
My gear is simple, always been on a budget and my choice needs to stay within.

B&W speakers are musical.

I had driven B&W 801 with Jadis 500 350W tube amplifier 20 years ago to get the most powerful bass at my home.
No. I love my Magico S5 Mk2’s, but plan on setting up a system in future based around large planar magnetic panels with servo subs. Ever since I heard the Infinity IRS-V’s back in 1991, it’s been a life dream to set up a system which bests the already great fives.
@ melbguy_one

I used to use Apogee Duetta Signature for 10 years. So I also have fantasy for nice planar speakers.

But I like tube sound right now.

I am more interested in getting vintage Western Electric or replica if I have a chance.
@shkong78, there are much better planar magnetic panels around today than the original (and even resto’d) Apogees.

WE horns are fun if you have the space for them.
