I bet most people think their speakers are the best speakers they've ever heard - that's why they keep them. :D
I would alter that and say the best they have heard at, 'that price point'. For me I have heard plenty of speakers that I felt to be better than mine (Revel Studio 2's) but never felt the urge to drop that much coin

Agreed. I have the best speakers... that I can afford. I truly think they are excellent and if it turns out I cannot afford going up the ladder, they will serve me quite well. That being said, I have heard speakers (the B&W D range, for one) that are simply better but cost prohibitive for now.

Well everyone has a different opinion. Others may or may not feel the same as you. That’s cool.

But I don’t feel that way. :D

I’ve owned Salon2, 802D2, KEF Reference, Linkwitz Orion, Phil3, and heard so many others.

I was just guessing how other people might feel based on how I feel.

But this isn’t the thread for best speakers. This is about the new B&W Diamond. :D

I would buy a pair if my student loan was by paid for by you guys.
Man, if you’re gonna dream, then might as well dream big about winning the lotto or some rich person giving you $20 million. :D

I'm with the "I could give a rat's patoot" about 50 grand speakers they are not relevant to me.

Seriously, I have no life.
I looked at the first picture again and am wondering if that is a wood veneer on the speakers or abstract art poster.
I have not seen such a wood veneer before. Interesting.

I'm not super formally educated sound engineer guy, but I've been obsessed with all things a/v since I was 14 - 15 (which was over 30 years ago) aand I was even fortunate enough to have put together, not quite the dream setup, that I figured wouldn't happen 'til at least my 40's (full mcintosh front end at the time) but one that didn't include major compromise...at only 23

This was after spending some time being introduced to true high end audio by a guy who hand made his own equipment (speakers for sure, don't remember about amps/preamps) & who refined my already naturally good ear a bit more

Anyway, something that jumped out at me about this listening room for the signatures, was that it had multiple non functioning subs sitting around

I'm aware of room treatment & such...but wouldn't that've altered the experience to/in some (possibly) indeterminate degree/manner?

I don't mean any disrespect, but that comes off a l'il sloppy to me
