Tell us what were your first speakers, and what speakers have you owned since those, up to your current model. I actually built a pair of speakers out of a couple of kitchen cabinets and some old restaurant wall speakers back when I was 14-15 years old. Those were my first, although they were rough looking and you can only imagine what they sounded like. My speaker evolution...EPI 320 (1984 ... not 100% positive on the model, but I do remember an 8" woofer that kept bottoming out)Infinity SM120 (1986 ... had a 12" woofer, but wife complained they were too loud for the single wide trailer we lived in so I had to send them back to Crutchfield)Klipsh Forte (1988 - WAF collapsed - also added Klipsh KG1's for front and rear surrounds)Snell B-Minor / Snell HCC500 Center / Snell SUR500 Surrounds (1991 - our first major home theater system)B&W 600 Series i (1994 - still use these in our sun room as of 2017)PSB Image 6T / 9C / 10S (2001 - in our first dedicated home theater which was half of the garage that I later tore out)Klipsch Synergy All-Weather SA-3 (2005 - still in use for outdoors - still sound pretty good in 2017)VMPS RM30 / Dipole Surround SE (2006 - used RM30 for LCR setup)JBL Northridge E90 / EC35 / E10 (2006)SVS SBS-01 System (2006)Boston Acoustics VR2 / VRC / VRX (2006)Ascend Acoustics Sierra 1 / CBM-170 SE (2007 - CBM-170 are still surrounds in our great room as of 2017)MartinLogan Ascent i / Motif / Fresco (2007)MartinLogan Spire / Matinee / Clarity (2009)MartinLogan Prodigy / Theater / Ascent (2009)Carnegie Acoustics CSB-1 / CST-1 (2012 - former front stage of our great room)MartinLogan Montis / Stage Center / Motion 12 Surrounds (2013)Arx A5 (2013 - for two channel swap-out system within my home theater room)Infinity Primus P163 / PC351 Center (2013 - front stage of our great room - still in use as of 2017)SVS Ultra Towers / Ultra Center / Ultra Bookshelf Surrounds (2014)MartinLogan Electromotion ESL / Stage X Center (2015)Chane A5rx-c (2016 - for occasional swap-out - two-channel listening, and reference speakers under $1000 - still own as of 2017)KEF Q900 (2016 - haven't ever listened to them... still in the box, but got them at a huge discount on clearance)MartinLogan Expression 13A (2016 - with Stage X as center and moved ESL's to rear)Scansonic M9 (2017 - have not heard them either - still in the box, a good deal)MartinLogan EM-IC (2017 - added 4 Atmos in-ceiling speakers)As of today I run the Expression 13A's with the ESL's in the rear and the Stage X center...
