A general question for all you speaker lovers what are the best speakers you have heard or owned include the system running them if you can. Would be helpful to be able to look at some recommendations for other members looking at getting into stereo listening. I went the headphone route and sold pretty much all my headphones to go with stereo don't regret it at all.
I own a pair of QUAD ESL 57 powered by a QUAD 34/306 stack lovely sounding and vintage to boot. Also heard a pair of Yamaha NS1000s can't remember what they were playing off but they were stunning. I haven't been to any shows so can't say I have heard any of the really newest high-end stuff mainly just my own experience out and about.
