It would have to be a toss up between the Neat Ultimatum XL10 (2 x 75kg plywood crates) and the Kudos Titan T88 (4 x 25-35kg cardboard boxes). Both well worth the effort though.

I'm pretty jealous reading this thread because even if I had the room to accommodate huge speakers SWIMBO wouldn't stand for two huge wooden boxes in the living room. I however would love a pair of ATC SCM100's

In terms of sheer weight, this bit of bling http://www.artaudio.co.uk/wp-content...1-1024x768.jpg, which weighs in around 40 kg.

By far the biggest item I bought is Varitune V6 helmholtz resonator - actual dimensions (despite website) 120x60x60cm internal volume approx 360 litres, and I've got two of them (plus two of the smaller V4s).

I would love a bigger room instead though.

Impulse H2 for size and weight.

Quad 63s for size but not that heavy.

My B+W 802D3's were a struggle - I think they are 95kg each unpacked; 115kg each including packing.

My 100s were great, but big for sure. After a couple of house moves Iíve now got some 50 Towers and they are actually quite discreet. High quality but very simple and self-effacing cabinets. Your mrs would barely notice them. Only 300mm wide - less than an LP.

Ditto, but some lovely 989s collected today and currently sharing the room with H2s. Speaker demands: floor area getting a bit out of hand...will spend some of tomorrow rearranging things (slowly!) - but first, some listening

Ah, excellent - a clash of the tians for sure.

I'm surprised nobody has tried to revive the H2. While ESLs present a quite different picture of events, I rarely hear designs today able to hold a candle to the H2.

Biggest size, weight, cost? Thinks - they are all a similar size, weight and cost except an LP12 size and weight and far too much cost.
Smallest rPi and lowest cost - greatest fun.
