Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

current list and update

I got the Nuprime -- so far, it's great. Now to reconsider speakers...

There were a number of interesting suggestions. Here's my current list:

Sealed:
Harbeth p3esr $2,199 12Hx7.5Wx7.5D
spendor sr/5r2 $1,595 12x6.5x7.5
Bagby Continuum $1,295 12x6.5x7
amphion one15 $2,000 12.5x6.3x10.3

ported
Salk Wow1 front $1,295 12.5x7x9
ref 3a dulcet rear $1,999 10.75x7x9
audio note AX2 rear $1,000 15x9x9

I'm leaning to the Harbeth, based upon a variety of posts, reviews, etc. Next would be the Bagby, which may end up as my first choice. The Spendor has the driver front mounted on the front baffle -- does that matter? The other ls35a descendents have it back mounted as per the original.

Salk Wow1 seems very interesting - my take is that it's a more 'complete' spkr than the Bagby, but perhaps without the tonal characteristics that make those spkrs special.

Blumenstein makes some interesting single driver spkrs with fostex drivers, but I want to move away from single driver.

Still looking!
