Summary: I am a hifi enthusiast almost 20 years now, i have listened to thousands of speakers already and i have written only about the few ones that have impressed me. The major factor i pay attention to is the realistic rendition, the feeling of being there. Among the spekers i have loved in this respect are the Monitor Audios pmc 703, the Canton (yes, why not?!) Reference 9.1, the Spendor s3/5. The Proac Reference D2 are also great. But the D 1 are an achievement.
