Thanks. Your welcome. I might bring a used speaker into the flock one day. One that doesn't cost too much just for a different presentation to change tbings up. Rotate in and out now and then. But nothing too expensive.
Trying to find a pair of speakers you like is like trying to find a long-term girlfriend. She needs to make you feel good and not be too fussy. I'm also not rich and can't afford to sample the different flavors of speakers out there. I research all I can and try to pick one that I will like. Again kind of like those foreign dating sites that show you a lot of options but you don't have the luxury of flying back and forth and date several to find the perfect one. Again its like going to a brick and mortar establishment. You get to hear a variety of speakers but you have to decide on one. And just like online dating they will sound much different (better or worse)when you get them home and meet them in person. Ok and if things aren't working out, you don't want a costly divorce. Again you and your speaker go to therapy here at Audiogon. You research and ask members how you can get along with your speakers. Placement, room treatment, cables, listening position and you try to work things out. If it just won't workout then you have to find another. Again for most audiophiles a very expensive venture. I like my speakers now. I didn't at first but did some things mentioned above and I'm happy
now. Is it a perfect match? No. I know there is trade offs with speakers. You might get one thats lively and dynamic as heck but 1 hour you are tired of listening. I didn't mean this response as funny or disrespectful. Just an analogy that has been going around in my head for a couple of years.
