Great topic. Currently own a pair of Magnepans and Klipsch heritage horn speakers. For me, there's no point to having multiple "lovers" if they're a lot alike. 😉👍🎸🤘✌️

I’ve had my B&W 802d for about 12 years after working my way up the line starting with CM1 bookshelf. I am getting the itch to grab a pair of bookshelf’s to add but they need to be bi-wired for my set-up.
I have a search for Klipsch Palladium monitor/bookshelf but they are very rare. Of course I can get the tower version for a good price. Harbeth seems to be a good choice. My budget is 1500 or so and I am open for suggestions.
I use a T&A Dac 200 for my pre, Spectron mono blocks and have a VPI Classic with Ortofon Cadenza red, Ear 834p. Stream Roon/Qobuz
i think the bookshelf’s will be mainly for vinyl.
Audio is a bit different for me than other hobbies like art, music, film, literature, but motorcycling is the easiest hobby to compare.
I love motorcycling and am down to five motorcycles, all very different (and very old but reliable). For motorcycling I don't think any particular bike 'presents roads' in whatever may be deemed the only correct manner.
BUT, in music I believe the goal is the single most accurate presentation of whatever source is being played. I don't think there are a bunch of 'correct' ways to present the source or the music the artist intended.
So, for me, having a second music system of lesser or different quality would make me second guess the 'A' system. I don't need a 'classical' system and a 'rock' system. All music should be played accurately. (I would like louder speakers :-).
That said, I'd love spare speakers to fool with like DQ-10s, Pulsars, Magnepans, etc! Many give me pure joy because of the accomplishment for the cost (my Elac Debut F5.2 floorstanders and bookshelves in the TV room come to mind.)
