Can you live with your current speaker until you die?



Yes I can!

In my 40 years of history I had gone through around 15 speakers including

ADS, Altec Lansing, Thiel, Canton, Apogee Duetta Signature(10years), BMW 801, Avalon Ascent, Wilson Audio Watt and Puppy6.

I settled at Pacific Northwest area located just midway between Seattle and Vancouver BC around 6 years ago.

It has a nice western view of Bay and Pacific Ocean with 2 acres lot.

I could play music loud during midnight with no problem to my neighbors as long as I close the windows.

With vaulted big space, my Lansche 4.1 speakers makes a beautiful voice out of classical, Jazz or even new age music.

I had been living with the speaker since 2007.

I do not claim that Lansche 4.1 is the best speaker in the world.

But with clean and pristine treble out of plasma tweeters and pretty good bass out of 2 10 inch driven by internal active amplifier and high efficiency (99db spec, but I believe it to be around 93db), it is hard to find better speaker with overall merit for my house.

The only catch is that it can stop working since it is an active speaker( plasma tweeter and active bass unit).

But I keep having good communication with Henry Dien of Lansche Audio who upgraded plasma tweeters twice at reasonable cost.

I can happily live with Lansche 4.1 speakers at my present house for my life unless serious health issues happen to either me or my speakers.

How about you gentlemen and ladies?

Had any one of you found the speaker for your life?

@ elizabeth

I had used Apogee Duetta Signature for 10 years before.

Thus I fully understand your affection with planar Maggie.

I hope you will enjoy it for your life.

I also keep updating the front end and amplifiers, not speaker

At 65, I've owned my Spendor S100's for 28 yrs now.  Barring some kind of mechanical catastrophe, I'm pretty sure these puppies will outlive me!;)
Some prefer to change speakers but I am willing to change only front end and amplifiers.

It is up to individual choice.

About 15 years ago, I had been happy with Avalon Ascent for 2 years.

Then one audio dealer offered to give me deep discount over the purchase of Wilson Watt and Puppy 6 which I swallowed.

But it was disaster.

I do not mean that Wilson Audio is bad in general, but Watt and Puppy 6 were too critical to my ears at my listening room and sold it at loss after 6 months.

Since then I had been more careful to change speakers.

In addition, I am happy with overall strength of Lansche 4.1.

Its plasma tweeter is best period.

Plasma Tweeters are pretty sensitive to all the upstream signals so they can be affected by power cables and speaker cables.

I am using cables costing 300-2000$ after long auditions.

I had plasma tweeters replaced twice during 11 years of use.

Mr Henry Dien of Lansch Audio had it done at reasonable cost.
