What is your speaker ownership history since 1995?


Used audio market is not the same again since on-line marketplace was born in 1995 (Fleabay).   What is your speaker *ownership* history since then?

Since 1995? 
Wilson Audio WATT3/Puppy2

They still sound incredible.

Just moved to Sabrinas last week. Will move the 3/2s to another room or give them to my son. He's hoping for the later. 

Since 1995?
Wilson Audio WATT3/Puppy2
They still sound incredible.

I can imagine. One of the best speakers I've ever heard. Congratulations!

Dates are Approximate:

Monitor audio MA4, owned for some years by 1995

Dynaudio Audience 50 1998

Living Voice Auditorium 2000

Living Voice Avatar 2003

Acoustic Zen Crescendo 2005

Daedalus Audio DA-Rama 2010

I cam honestly say I enjoyed all of them, but the Daedalus are the cream of the crop and I'm planning to be buried with them.

A modest list.  Still have the ones with an asterisk.

Vandersteen 2c
Alon Petite
Carver True Sub-woofer*
RA Labs mini-monitors*
Ascend Acoustics Sierra 1*
Spendor S3/5*
SVS S1000 subwoofer*
Spatial M1 Turbo*
Spatial X2 Modular*
Staring after my college days--those speakers then were not at all high end. Couldn’t afford much.

Allison Ones 1976-1988
Paradigm 7 1988-1990
Vortex Screens 1991-2007 Von Schweikert’s early effort.

Heard about Audiogon and other sites to buy used.

Emerald Physics CS-2 2006 Didn’t like the veiled highs.
VMPS 626R 2007-2011 First speaker I loved.
added VMPS 215 VSS sub 2007-2010
Asked Brian Cheney it I could become a demonstrator/agent. Did this until his death and the end of VMPS speakers.

VMPS RM40 2011
VMPS RM30 2011-2012
added ACI Maestro sub 2011 The VSS sub spoiled me.
VMPS RM40 BCSE MLS 2012-2014 sold them--big mistake
Green Mountain Audio Continuum 3HX 2013-2017 Rarely used.
Selah Tempesta 2014-2016 Looking for something smaller but good.
bought back same pair of VMPS RM40 BCSE MLS 2015-present
Vapor Audio Joule/Cirrus hybrid 2018-present

Bottom line--I really like the sound of VMPS speakers, but not the size (260 lbs. each).

As a VMPS demo-agent, I had opportunity to own several models and also to trade up to better ones because owners would call me and ask if I was interested. For me, VMPS is tough to beat in sound--the clarity of 40" of ribbon drivers and the authority of the bass.
