The best speaker you ever heard?

In my opinion, the speaker is by far the most important part of the audio system. After all, it is the only part you hear. OK, the other stuff really matters a lot, but without a great speaker... No go.

I am a bit 'speaker-obsessed' I guess, and now I am wondering: What are the best speakers you have ever heard, and what made them the best?
I had a dream once that I heard 500 Bose Wave Radio's all wired together with Nordost Valhalla. No Watt/Puppy-6 or or a box full of Quads could even come close to that. It makes me want to go back to sleep.

I have to agree with Rlapporte,being a dealer has got little to do with personal tastes
Sphere, the bottom line is that every dealer is supposed to disclose this fact when posting about a product they sell. The conversation stays much cleaner that way.

By the way, what gives? You became an Audiogon member 5 1/2 yrs ago, and this is your first post? Where do I pick up your cassette series on the zen of restraint? :-)))
Have owned big Genesis, Irs 5, X-1's, Maggie 20's, Nola Exotica, etc.

The Rockport Hyperion, my current speaker, is the best I've had. They do everything quite well, and are the most livable and least compromised. Fit and finish, and pride of ownership are first rate. Now I need to figure out how to afford the Arrakis. Yipes.
Dear Boa2, to tell you the truth, I signed up 3 days ago.I was shocked to see 2001,but what the heck?I can't explain it.I know how most people feel that a commercial chap should mention his background,but even if they don't,it does not matter,especially for a 150k speaker.If anybody is buying such a speaker,the only opinion that matters is his own, and not some commercial or non commercial member on a forum.:-).
Skull, what's the Arrakis? Would you please tell us more detail? Drivers, cabinets, etc....
