Have you found your "End-Game" speakers yet? I have. And it feels so good!!!

Yes indeed.  Several years ago, the absolutely incredible Revel Salon 2 speakers finally took me off the speaker merry-go-round.  I do believe that I'll be taking my Revel Salon 2 speakers to the grave with me.  What's your end-game speakers?


@mbmi +1

he kinda nailed it.

”end game high-end” audio is an oxymoron. It’s a “MY CURRENT end game” proposition in this crazy hobby at best …. Ergo, A current assessment and pause , but thay insatiable thirst, drive, and active hunt for “more” and “better”persists.

The litmus test presents itself by our communal participation in this forum and supported by our attendance at major audio expos .

ENDGAME  means that we are so happy passing this threshold of MINIMAL  acoustic satisfaction  when acoustic problems are solved , that we know that upgrade even if they are possible exist , they suddenly  appear way less interesting ...

Thats my situation with a very low cost system well embedded ...

End game so far seems to be Vandersteen Quatro’s.  Everytime we listen to live music , my wife states how great the Quatro’s are compared to all the others we have listened to or owned. 


I have been upgrading loudspeaker Xovers for over 20 years .

in your revels the parts quality is a average at best !

meaning maybe a 7 out of 15

just pull a driver out and you-can see inside not even a name brand Taiwan on some capacitors.the resistors are $1 , when top quality even $12 mills are much better . The Xover is the 🧠 or ♥️ of the Loudspeaker . As much as you think it sounds good a upgraded Xover would’ve at minimum 10% better still. Look at Humble homemade hifi capacitor test. For all capacitor ratings to prove my point

OP - This guy is such a breath of fresh air. Wait til he tells you he’s owned his own audio business for 40 years and he’s forgotten more than you’ll ever know.
