Hi-fi enthusiast for many years I have resolutely turned towards two famous brands in France and Triangle ie Jm lab.
I have a pair of Comet are (Triangle) and a pair of 907 be (Jm lab).
I sell 936 of the Jm lab to sample the range of Triangle Stratos (perhaps a little less energy in the future will tell ... and also for the sake of change, even back at the end, just like everyone else.
I went through B & W, Elipson, Davis, and a little Kef (IQ range).
The value for money of the two French brands remains correct even if the price tends to increase with the new ranges.
Having trained as a classical violinist, I do not think to turn to other brands in the future. Note that the new ranges beryllium are prodigious, but are beyond my budget.
