I saved alot of money.
I've found that once you enter into the "high end" the reward ratio can be a slippery slope.  If your room treatment and layout is not perfect, you just end up chasing small gains, which is fine, but few of them have any substance. YMMV. 
Spendor D9.2 vs. Harbeth super hl5 plus xd + REL Stentor III vs. Spendor Classic 100?
I've been on a bit of a speaker bender over the past 6 months. I find the D7 to be detailed but pretty easy to listen to with all kinds of music. It's been years since I've heard the classic so will leave that to others to compare.

Sounds_real_audio yes I agree about speed, but I have heard speakers that have speed in some areas but not others. I think I could call it dynamic impact as well. Where the flow of the whole of the music is fast- impactful- large swings when calle...

Interns! We are all a little on edge after being cooped up for a year.  It will nice to get out and be "live" again.  I bet someone was trying to be helpful and put those on without anyone noticing.  Those speakers are on my list to hear.  Can you...

That’s not the right screw for that application.

I appreciate the above content. it’s a good mix of practical and contemplative thoughts on what it is we are looking to achieve. Does anyone have any experience with Gershman? It would be a complete scratch of the "low power" desire but we have to...

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I don’t always often check on these pages but I’ve made notes of the above suggestions. One I want to direct to DJ regarding the Adam Audio. Thanks for recommending the monitor with that kind of range. I curren...

djones51 perhaps I am not using the word for its intended purpose.  Transparent in my mind is lifelike, in the room presence, clear. Opposite might be veiled, rich. I welcome some of your descriptors on what I see as a sliding scale.

Tvad, I agree with your statement. Every combination has its synergy just as every part of our beautiful world has its season- although many are harsh :)douglas_schroeder,  I agree with your reasoning completely, which kind of brings me back to th...

Soix, thanks for the Pulsar suggestion. In another setup I had a pair of Verity Parsifals and would run just the monitor on occasion. Those have some similarities.

SRA I had a Response D2 five years or so ago with an old rel sub. I enjoyed it but I soon went to a tower speaker because it lacked some slam. I like your 300b thoughts but like to feel bass. Appreciate your remarks they are making me walk through...

Thanks for the replies. I will take a look at those options. I once asked a guy on a fb forum to compare the O/93 to the Perfect Set and several people thought it was unfair to compare them because of the price discrepancies. There no shortage of ... 
Single driver speakers. Are they worth considering ?
How about a pair of Omegas with a pair of monster subs?  
Devores and Omegas - input please
Prof The region that caused  fatigue for me was somewhere in the 1-3k I think. I'd be curious to know what happens directly after that "suck out" and if somehow that reintroduction is what caught my ear and made it perceive a hardness or brightnes...

I experience more wall of sound than spatial 3D image.  They did move lots of air. That’s not easy to find when combined with all the attributes mentioned by Prof.
