What is your favorite High EFF speaker
Cornscala,  Zingali Twenty Evo 1.2 
Horn Speaker Recommendations
Zingali or Cornscala 
Horn based loudspeakers why the controversy?
Took the plunge and had a set of Cornscala "D's" built.These speakers do everything I want from a speaker.For the price they are fantastic, ugly as sin yes, but appearance is of no concern to me.  They out perform my mates Tannoy Kingdoms Royal's ... 
Best of both worlds, Vandersteen and B&W
Have Vandersteen 2ce signatures and have had B&W Matrix 802's and 805's the B&W's made my ears bleed.  The Vandies are a far better all round speaker IMO. Never had any complaint regarding any aspects regarding the sound they go low and th...

Vandersteen 2xx - 100,000 units?
Use a 32 w Line Magnetic 211IA on my 2CE signatures with very satisfactory results. They even thrive on 12 w Triode.  No Difference between that and my Consonance Cyber 800 mono blocks @ 78 w, toss a coin.These speakers do not need gobs of power, ... 
I am sick of Adele
Terrible Diction, her  music is far to self absorbed, and she Honks. not my cup of tea.  She is no Ella by a long chalk.  
Amps which are Great, but either Unknown or Underpriced
Second Line Magnetic, great amps, ultra reliable built like a German Tank not a Russian one, with a great sound, at a great price..Also Opera Consonance, real class sound, excellent reliability, and beyond reproach build quality. 
When is your Hifi good enough?
When You start listening to the music and simply enjoy it. When you stop obsessing and nit picking and or run out of money and come to your senses.  After realising you have spent more on equipment than your car.
