You don’t mention price point, room size or what amp you intend to use but I would put Daedalus up there with the best dynamic driver, high efficiency designs. Bottom end impact and honesty very high with the Apollo series 10” woofer, very good resolution without fatigue and very good imaging as well.

I did not want to interject price, room size or amps as I wanted to see what other’s have used, enjoyed, demo’d, etc. in various settings etc., so to ascertain a broader spectrum of user EXP.
It is why I asked for available production models rather than an all time sort of love fest with the genre.
Perhaps a consensus would formulate, perhaps not.
It always helps to update such a list of user EXP from time to time as speaker tech and tech in general, is not static, ever matriculating the ‘ball’ forward.
Klipschorn and Daedalus have received some voices here already, among others.
I’m only sure of the way I want to go, how I get there and with what, is another story entirely.
… and there are countless other speaker systems which as yet have not been named here.
As they say, “More will be revealed”.
You mentioned with a 16 ohm IMP speaker system, amp consideration is important.@blindjim 16 ohms reduces distortion in all amps. If **high quality** audio is your goal, your amplifier investment is better served by a higher impedance speaker, if that is the only variable.
20 watts does work, but a lot depends on the size of your room, how lively it is and your personal listening habits. I found that 20 watts simply wasn't enough- I could run that out of gas. In my old space I used our S-30 amplifier which makes 45 watts into 16 ohms and still felt like the additional power or our M-60s was helpful. If you are running the amp out of gas or even coming close, the distortion will be higher. Its best to have the amp working at a 'moderate loaf', no matter what amp it is.
