What are the best speakers in the world?


This is the most important question on our minds. This is what it all boils down to. What is the best speaker on the planet?

I dont want to hear any excuses or a dozen different opinions. I just want the facts. 

A speaker is just like a car. It has a purpose. The purpose of a car is to get you from A to B. But we are here to discuss speakers so what is the job of a speaker exactly and why are there so many to choose from?

The purpose of a speaker is to play music so that we can sit down and enjoy it. Simple as that. No resonance, no coldness no harshness no lack of bass, no booming, no nonsense, just pure buttery heaven. 

Is it the magico? is it the harbeth? is it the wilson? Avalon? Yg? vivid? 
DIY custom tuned? brick walled cabinets made of 12 inch thick concrete? 

Are we simply being cheated with all these offerings? why are there so many?

Again, i dont want to hear differences of opinions or any extraneous comments. 

I will ask again, what is the best speaker in the world?

I am sick and tired of seeing different speakers being touted as the best. I am sick of the lies. Sick of being cheated. Sick of lack of measurements. Sick of watching other audiophiles being duped. Sick of audiophiles that are tone deaf. 

We need the facts. No more lies no more BS no more opinions. 

What is the best?

The speakers you have.
Similar question to which gun is the best for self-protection.
The best speaker in the world is what is best for you. Do specs determine the best ? Size ? Looks ? NO !Tonal accuracy, harmonic structure and Timbre determine the best. So for me it would be MBL Extremes. If you cannot afford those check out Analysis Planars.

If we were to ask the presumable experts ie the makers/designers, what would they say?

What would Harbeth say, or Tannoy, or ATC, or Magico, or Wilson, or PMC, or Zu, or JBL, or B&W, or DeVore, or Joseph Audio, or MBL, or Vivid Audio, or Quad, or Spendor, or Martin Logan, or Living Voice, or Eclipse, or any one of the dozens of other established companies out there?

I guess they'd all have a slightly different perspective and slightly different design goals but you can bet they will all be using advanced measurement techniques to determine where they wish to place the inevitable compromises that current driver and cabinet construction necessarily demand.

I suspect with us being on the cusp of a radical development in computing power, one that will be more readily available to anyone outside NASA and CERN, the answer to what is the best loudspeaker will soon become available. 

Perhaps it already is.

Well, whatever it is it will still have to cross that gaping divide hungrily populated by both the media and by commerce.

Neither of which may have any political interest in presenting it. 

 
If I’ve heard them all, I could give you a definite answer but since that’s impossible I can only tell you the best one I have heard among probably 50 speakers which includes from Magico to PSB, from NHT to Wilson Audio.


Joseph Audio Perspective2 is the best one I have heard. I own the Harbeth SHL5 and Falcon LS3/5A. They’re amazing and I never thought could be bettered.


I really couldn’t find one thing that I didn’t like with the Perspective2s.
