    - dynaudio countour 1.3 se's
    - KLH HTIB

    (yes, it is coincidence that both answers are the same as Jason's)

    - Axiom bookshelf speakers at factory outlet prices, Divas on sale, and Paradigms in Canada
    - anything made by Bose is the worse bang for the buck anywhere

    - Sonus Faber (I think Amati's)
    - Some bloated Cerwin Vegas I recently saw at Fryes with massive woofs

    Hey Jason, I'm honestly not copying you! I having been lusting after the 1.3 SE's for a long time now. And I didn't know the Vegas looked like the KLH's, though I can well imagine they do. All cheapo bloated towers tend to look similar.

    I think the best looking speaker is the Klipsch Belle in oak with cane grilles.
