Hard choice cause I've never paid good money for bad ones in my opinion.
I've said plenty about my current speakers (DCM CX-17, love em) so I wont go further about them. Also had a set of Yamaha bookshelf speakers from the 80s back about six years ago (can't remember the model). They were pretty nice but I ended up selling them cause my Sony reciever died and I didn't have a way to power them.
I think I still have my Klipsch surround sound computer speakers in storage somewhere, they were epic until one of the outputs died. May end up salvaging the drivers out of them one day and DIYing something with them.
But by far the best system I've ever had the pleasure of using is my dad's home theatre system. I can't tell you the model numbers of any of them because I'm not home to look, but Axiom floor standers, center channel, and surround speakers and an SVS bass cylinder (12"). Absolutely not ideal for a turntable, but for anything else, this system blows my mind! It has to be my favorite, it shakes the entire house and still sounds clean while doing it...amazing.
Are we there yet? No, never there yet. Keep it rollin', we're paid by the mile.
