Vandersteen 1Ci, Tekton Lore Reference, or Fritzspeaks Grove for a small room
There are many choices of speakers to include all models and manufacturers...and that is a good thing, since all audiophiles having different considerations and taste/preferences in sound. I say get what you fancy and be happy. Whatever you think ... 
Brands that have the least depreciation
As it has been said, McIntosh, Thorens, Marantz, ARC and others. I think particular models of brands are even more indicative of this. Some JBL speaker models, maybe the Garrard 301, some Marantz, Sansui, Pioneer receivers of the USA glory days of... 
My Thoughts re: Dealers Posting on Audiogon

Looking for a good full range floor stander
I think audiotroy would be the last dealer I would buy speakers from. 
Maggie Fans Chime in: Need recommendation for amp to drive Maggies (MMGs and 1.7i)
I have used an A21 Parasound for my MMGs. I used a McCormack DNA 125 and an Odyssey Stratos before that. The A21 was much better in all respects, not even close. It is a beast. My 2 cents. John Curl design with many great engineering feats behind ... 
Is this sign of getting old?
When one asks questions about getting old... that is a sign one is getting old. 
What’s really hurting the audio hobby?
If a younger, aspiring and potential, audiophile turned away from their iPhone or take-anywhere music setup and got into vinyl, how much money would they have to spend? The truth is that the ultra uber expensive boxes of wires (aka expensive audio...
