Not 100% sure yet, I've been playing with my SCM10s again, both very different but not decided quite which I prefer.

wharfedales cant remember whitch

jpw mini monitors, better than the wharfedales

quad 11ls first decent hi-fi speakers

wharfedale diamond 8, the floorstanders 3s i think, great bass

monitor audio gold reff standmounts, didnt really do it for me

ae alite 3, really liked these, good price too

spendor s5e, didnt like these at all very thin sounding

heco celan 300, very good build, but too much bass for my room

ipl m3tlm modded by a wammer- still owned by a wammer- great speaker

some obscure infinity floorstanders- really quite good

keff 104 a/b sounded very dated to me

zhorn herkura- very good at what they do, fantastic with the right amp and music

kora mandalas, not very well known, but fantastic speakers, amazeing sound with border patrol 300b amp

quad els 63, my current and best speakers so far

I need to update this, will do it on the laptop later today

Tannoy 12" gold monitors in lancaster cabs, at last good bass that doesnt react with my room, treble only average.

Tannoy 15" golds in corner cabs, great bass and mids, bur still weak treble, and bloody heavy..

Audio note e lx, love the mids and treble, but bass awful, my room again causing this i think.

Audio note e spe he, a fellow wammer lent me these to try, i was a bit reluctant as i thought they would be the same as the lx , but their not, superb, i had to add a bit of room treatment to tame the bass slightly, but their my keepers.
