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?


Well, I may never wake from tonight’s slumber...

You may never wake from tonight’s slumber...

So, your current speaker better be the one you can live with until you die...

Always listen to your speaker like it’s your last night on earth, dude!! 😁

(i.e. don’t be a halfass ADD/ADHD dingus listener)

It all depends on my financial status. I love my Paradigm Studio 100’s especially since I added a JL Audio E112 sub but if somehow I become wealthy they will be gone. Not sure for what but I’d upgrade my entire system. 

This has been the longest I’ve had speakers from the same company. Went from Vandersteen Treo’s to the Quatro’s and will never look back. I’m in heaven daily. Most of my friends are constantly changing out speakers etc. so glad to be off the hamster wheel. 


I had not listened to M9 yet.

But I will have a chance next weekend at Seoul, Korea.

I am going there to celebrate first birthday of my granddaughter.


The total system to drive 750k $ speaker will cost 1 million $ at least.


Even if I like it, I would not jump at it unless I win big lottery.😁
