Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: "Sleeper" Speakers

Basically most non mainstream speakers that people like would fall into this camp.

The Audio Note K/Spe and AX Two get virtually no press and I find them to be class leaders for their respective room size requirements.

I recently reviewed the Roksan TR-5 speakers and they're fantastic speakers that probably get overlooked because of their other products. (at least in the North American market).

King Sound arguably as well because they're up against more known established makers in Magnepan, Martin Logan, and Quad.

Certain models seem to get most of the press. I remember back in the day the B&W CDM1 and CDM2 speakers. The former got all the press and was the more expensive model but the CDM2 sounded better IMO despite not looking as good or having the tweeter on top.

Perhaps people get tied to a budget and they say "I will buy a $2,000 speaker" and they're convinced that anything less will be worse when sometimes the lower model is better balanced and will actually serve the room dimensions and amplifier better.
