If you had to narrow your choices to 4 - 5 speakers

To listen to at the upcoming Axpona, in the 10 - 20k range driven by a great solid state amp which ones would you search for? Yes understand listening conditions and room setups can make or break a system but just trying to narrow some choices. Thank you.


Thiel!    Am about to readopt a pair of lovely 1.5 dressed in pristine teak.  My living room is not large, and planted in my relatively new Italian leather sofa, I am at one with their embrace.

Make sure you check out the DIY room!! It’s 480 I believe. You would be shocked at how good these designs can be (Jim Salk is basically a DIYer turned business man!). Better materials, components and more time spent voicing to achieve the desired outcome. 

My choices:

Raidho, X2 and up

Wilson Audio, Sabrina X or used Sophia, Sasha

Focal (if you like more forward sound)



Definitely stop by the PranaFidelity room.  The new Dhara’s are pretty dang good. PF’s owner, Steven Norber, is a great guy. Easy to talk to and a wealth of knowledge. You won’t be disappointed.
