As most of us have probably spent a lot of time listening to different loudspeakers I thought it might be interesting to hear what everybody is using in their systems? To get the ball rolling, I'm running Ruark Crusader 2 floorstanders at the moment.

Oops, I added an option for Home Cinema Multi Channel and it wiped the votes so far. Sorry, I didn't know it would do that :oops:

I have B&W DM4's which i think a fatastic speakers for what they are, and in fact sold on a pair of LS 3/5a prefering the sound of these. although i am sure paired with the AB1's the rogers would have been superb. an unbelievable clarity in the mids, but bass felt a little false and no deep bass at all.

Also have a pair of wharfdale diamond 3 in the daugthers set up.

And my project for the summer is a pair of the large advent loudspeakers which need a good sanding and the bass cones refoaming. I couldn't resist them at £5 delivered.

Paradigm Active / 20 pair.

See: http://www.stereophile.com/standloudspe ... index.html

But, also, one alternate pair for use when the muse dictates: DIY LS3/5a from Falcon Acoustics DIY kit.
With a Hafler DH-220 amplifier. (and Sunfire sub-woofer).

Klipsch Palladium P-17B in my main system.

I've never been a big Klipsch fan, or a fan of horns in general but I'm really in love with these speakers. I listened to a lot of speakers before deciding on these and the longer I own them the more I like them. I demoed an REL sub recently and will add one later this year.

I used to be a floorstander guy, but my last few speakers have been bookshelves of the larger sizes. With or without a sub, easier to get good sound in smaller to mid size rooms.
