WAF Speaker suggestions
I appreciate your WAF problem. I had a set of classic Spendor 1/2Es that I was very happy with, but the day came when those "70s-looking boxes" were ordered out of the room. I've now got a set of Ohm 1000s and my wife likes the way they look in th... 
Ohm "Tall "speakers: Overall 2000 responses on a thread from 2008
Sunnyjim -- I went from a pair of Golden Ear 7s to a pair of Ohm 1000s just about one year ago. I've been very pleased with the Ohms in my setup. They have great voicing and a very natural soundstage -- its nice to be able to move around the room ... 
The truth about high end speakers MUST READ
Just finished a very enjoyable evening listening to music that I really like on my modest system. Felt absolutely no need to run out and change any of the gear tomorrow. Hope that doesn't disappoint anyone.

Still not sure what "upgrade" means to you. What do you think could be better (or just different) -- bass, midrange, highs, volume, clarity, dynamic range, imaging, physical appearance? That list could continue, but hope you get the idea.

To put it another way, what about your current set-up is falling short and needs to be improved?  
Spendor. A4 vs A6r vs SP1/2R2
No experience with Spendor's A line, but I owned both the S8e and SP1/2Es and were able to compare them side-by-side. I ended up sticking with the SP1/2E at the time. The S8e was a more "modern" sound with better deep bass and it played louder, bu... 
Has anybody tried Qobuz Streaming service?
I'm enjoying Qobuz through my Vortexbox/LMS music server, routed through a Squeezebox Touch into a Bel Canto DAC. No problems with skipping, pausing or delays. Sound quality is excellent. I plan on sticking with the service 
Qobuzz - Spotify
I use a Squeezebox Touch and a dedicated PC running a Linux OS (Vortexbox) which uses Logitech Media Server (LMS) software to manage things. Work perfect for streaming Qobuz and also managing my own library of 60K tunes. The SB Touch is out of pro... 
Harbeth 40.2 OR Spendor Classic 100 OR ??
Don't know that I have a technical explanation for this, but between the Harbeth and Spendor, I like Spendor better. They just seem to have more "magic" and the lifelike presentation of well recorded acoustic instruments is very natural. I'd still... 
Puzzled about reasons why there seems to be no shortage of used planner speakers
I had a set of Maggie 1.6QRs for several years and really enjoyed them. Then I moved. I went from a house with a perfect room for planar speakers to a house with a poor room for them. Bi-polar planar speakers interact with rooms differently than c... 
Are the new Ohm Walsh speakers Audiophile quality?
I agree with dep14 -- my Ohm 1000s have just an absolutely wonderful balance of characteristics that make listening to music a wonderful experience. They make it easy to focus on and enjoy the musical performance instead of the equipment. I'll thr... 
Spender classic 1/2 vs SP1
I owned a set of SP1/2E speakers for a number of years. My understanding is with the newer R version, Spendor has yielded to the temptation to tweak their sound to a more modern "audiophile" sound and in the process lost some of the magic. I belie... 
German Physiks - Listening Impressions Wanted
I own a pair of Ohm 1000s and really enjoy them. I find that they produce a realistic sized, stable image. One of my favorite attributes of the Ohms is that I do not have to stay put in a small sweet spot in order to hear them at their best. It's ... 
Ohm Walsh 4s worth looking into ???
For many years now I've refused to use the word "audiophile" to describe myself even though I've been active in the hobby for almost 50 years, including stints as a stereo store manager and a concert sound engineer back in the 70s and fixing/build... 
Ownership and Review of a pair of Ohm Super Sound Cylinder
Just my two cents -- I've also posted in the Ohm Micro Tall thread -- I bought a set of Ohm 1000s that were delivered in September and have been enjoying them immensely. (There was a near 40 year gap in my Ohm ownership as I had a set of the origi...
