""Yamaha NS-1000, No other japanese speaker system and no other Yamaha speaker did what these did. I wish I had picked up a pair when I worked in a shop that sold them when they were new. About as uncolored sound as I can imagine coming from 3 way cones and domes in a box. (The Yamaha NS-10 on the other hand are on my list of worst)""[quote][/quote]
Agree on the NS-1000. It's hard for the mind to "remember" sound, but I do remember I was about 20 when I first heard them in a little specialty shop in Old Greenwich, CT. Couldn't believe how clean, tight, and uncolored they were- and all out of a plain 'ol BOX with a woofer, mid, and tweet!That was the age of "experimentation" in speaker design we may never have seen since. So maybe memory serves me well....
BUT, as far as what I own: I finally own what I was looking for and got them 2 weeks ago. B&W 802 Series III. With my SVS cylinder sub, I'm happy. Not as exotic as some of these here, but bi-wired with my middling Rotel at 375watts/ ch. 4 ohms, ......I'm happy.
