Frank, I'm sure there's plenty of people that would rather drive a Honda Accord and have a $100k system than a cheap system and a fancy car.
Accounting for taste, sensibilities, and understanding of the physics involved; nearly all of the 'top-end' speakers have their 'issues'...Quads are wonderful but don't do bass and have limited dynamics.But at the end of the day, there is no perfect speaker.
I told him, well I would spend the first $80,000 on a loaded Audi R8 and then the rest to buy gas, maintenance, and insurance for it, and keep the audio system I now own, which is just fine for me and most others.
Well, I suppose it was a pair of Acoustat 1+1's driven by some Spectral separates and a Linn front end in a dealer showroom with a Mark Levinson recording of some choral music playing. I remember that last part cause I bought the recording: Mark Levinson, volume one.
In my choice of the original Quads I put in the stipulation/qualification/proviso: "For those to whom reproducing the human voice is a loudspeaker's first and most important job". Yet, whenever the Quads are mentioned, without exception someone always has to bring up them having their well know limitations. Uh, yeah, we know, that's why the stipulation/qualification/proviso.
You forgot the sad part. Girl wants baby, boy gives up nice car to afford same.
Sorry, didn't read the entire thread. But isn't it nice that someone agrees with you?

Firstly the most important consideration is the Listening room. In my room 12.5 ft wide by 26ft lenght Height 8 ft, I have tried many well known British speakers B & W KEF Monitor Audio, PMC, Spendor Harbeth and easily the best are the new Focalstage Floorstanders for natural reproduction without any listening fatigue for both Stereo & mch SACD & Blu-Ray IMO these speakers are a Best Buy.
