Bad, I would like to share another tidbit of info FWIW. I went searching for speakers within 90 miles of my home. I wanted to LISTEN and compare myself. I was advised by a couple of good dealers to bring my own music, to include some music I know very well. While I listen to jazz and acoustical music I had found a couple speakers sounded better with that kind of music, others better with Rock and so on. So I learned it’s not that there are really good speakers or terrible ones, it is moreso what you like for the kind of music you enjoy. I settled on Magnepan for one system and Vandersteen for my higher end system. I made sure to match the speakers to the capability of the amp, running tubes with the Vandy and SS with the Maggies.
Here's a few of the more recent threads on speakers (my reccomendation).
thanks for your thohghts on my current gear. https://forum.audiogon.com/users/gnostalgick I agree with @2psyop that to listen is to know. I prefer "rock" but listen everything M83 to Let it Bleed to Kind of Blue (except for twang). I did audition new speakers a month ago, maggie 1.6s with ReL subs and really liked it. But then had the original question pop in my head.... "does my current stack of gear warrant the speaker uogrades now or should I still be working on the gear first?" Thanks agian for commnets that specifically address and contrast the current gear versus the upside of upgrading the current speakers.
