Tannoy Kensington SE ($13800) Tannoy's only current 10-inch dual-concentric driver with Alnico magnet motors and pepper-pot compression driver. Fell in love with the looks & sound at first introduction. Midrange to die for. Got lucky to land the dealer demo pair. Never gonna give them up!
Took me a while to learn - these speakers require top-flight amplification & upstream electronics! They'll still sound great on cheap gear, but the good stuff takes them to a whole 'nother strata.
