    Here is a summary from the topic of "what speakers do you own". The list below is ordered by manufacturer, regardless of their location. ie: if a person has 2 B&W's for their fronts, 1 NHT for their center, and 4 Wilsons for their surrounds, the totals would be B&W 1, NHT 1, Wilsons 1. If anyone is interested, I can email them the entire Excel file so they can create their own sorts. The Excel file includes the manufacturer, the model, and the speaker location/type. If anyone prefers, I can list say the most popular front speakers, or the most popular subs, or whatever...

    :administrator: if there is a way to put these in a table, or to line up the columns, it would be appreciated.

    i notice that there are particular brands that do well with members of this forum, keep getting talked about and recommended ad nauseum, to the exclusion of too much other good stuff. Rp82 DVD players, SVS subs, paradigm speakers, and what not.

    a severe limitation of HTF.[​IMG]

    Haru,

    I somewhat agree. But there is a reasoning behind the all
    too common recomendations. They are good products or they
    would not get the recomendation in the first place. But it
    is at the respective purchasers digression to take the
    reviews for what they are worth and use all sorts of other
    imperical data to make his or her well informed decision.

    I'm surprised to see that Bose got a mere seven. Despite the fact that they get negative reviews around here I would have expected many more people would have either gotten their speakers before the brand went down hill or would have have bought first and researched later.

    No listing for Ascend? I know there are several of us on this forum, but I didn't pay attention to the thread and post in it so I guess I shouldn't expect others to have posted.

    There were 2 Ascend speaker users; the list above was filtered to show those with 3 or greater. There were quite a few one or two ofs such as Wilson (the best speakers that I've ever heard) and Ohm.
