How many NICE looking high end floor standing speaker are there at present


Hi, 
Sometimes when I dream, imagining of replacing my current 1997 Burmester 961 speakers, before maybe COVID19 is sending me to an early grave - I'm practically only stumbling on ugly often even like somehow crippled looking speaker creations.
Test will say, sounding fantastically gorgeous and - looking like 💩. 
This, or par tout looking like some or other children's coffin ⚰. 😥👻

Not for the life of it, can I imagine ever having some such 'creation' invading my daily living space. Ever.

Talking 'bout a BAD WAF situation, I say.

Some makers are trying to improve on this tragic situation with creations looking far too anatomical or something alien👾 fruit thing hanging off a tree... handle an' all. 

Is there no hope out there at all...? 🤔

So can one savely move on forgetting about a replacement, still in this here life, and saving the money 💰 ?

Well, the budget <= max 20k $ lets say, so I won't risk starving before the lockdown will end ever. 😱

Sorry too, um, retro - or maybe not enough retro for my liking?
They will sound nice as you say - as do so many...
In fact these soet of 'long boxes' ⚰, they remind me of my early German aquistion of a pair of ELACs.
Those had also good test results, but of course for recommended 'Einsteiger' hifi.
I'm sure these Spendor D series will be superior, by how much, who knows?

In any case, those plain Englophile designs are too 70s, never mind 80s... to my likings. 
I then had a pair of AR7s, which I really did like (at the time).
Alas, - 'times they are a changing...' eh?

Just goes to show that everyone's tastes are different! I just love how the Spendor D7 looks in my system. I love the clean lines and walnut wood look. Plus they are pretty small and dont impose much on the room.

I agree, your speakers do look fine in your setting. 🙂
And thanks for sharing your pictures. 👍

justmetoo, Unfortunatly (for me) my speakers have been long out of use as I've been looking to move to a larger place to house them properly, hence I regrettable offer no system page. YouTube "JBL 4550"(375/075:4550) those are identical to mine. Model 4676-a. Pro Series. I'm sure you'd enjoy giving them a visit, just not marriage to them!! Your statement "I wouldn't have them in MY living room" gave me a very excellent laugh as I can imagine many husbands hearing that exact response. 😩
@isochronism 

Would maybe those be what you are referring to?!?

I'll stay with my statement... 🔥 maybe one way to handle those items? 🤔 
Just crossed my mind... so much more to express , but will more better hold my tongue 😝
