Focal Micro Utopia Be

IMHO one of the more significant standmount designs of recent years.

1. JBL 4311 studio monitor, manages the honour of being the biggest selling speaker of all time(over 250,000 sold) and the most albums produced using them.
2. Tannoy 15" dc of any flavour.
3. My own.

I nominate Apogee Scintilla - suspect some of the other Apogees are better, but Scintillas are the best I've heard.
I Second the Impulse H2s

I'd like to second the Quad ESLs, having heard 57s, 63s, and 989s. The only problems for me are a relative lack of low bass, and perhaps mildly unconvicing percussion, but otherwise they are the only speaker I've heard which I'd consider apart from ATCs.

+1 for Yamaha NS1000Ms.

Had mine from new for around 30 years and, touch wood, still going and sounding great.

No idea what I would replace them with.

Any suggestions?

Depends what you mean by top. If you mean classic speakers of all time (which would include some cheaper models) then mine are:

second Focal Micro Utopis Bes

I nominate AR18s

I nominate ATC SCM 12s

I second the Linn Kan I, and nominate the Gale GS401A. In fact if I still had both I might not want any other speakers.

I've never heard the Spendor BC1, but they have always interested me.
