    Lottery winnings well spent

    Sorry but visually I love this speaker. Bernd was a fan of Peak Consult and I would love to hear this model.

    Anyone else have any new dream speakers? Does not matter if you have heard them or not. Just new designs that impress.

    The Audio Physic Kronos has been my dream for quite a while although not in that particular wood finish. Not a new design but pretty high tech with amplification/equalization. From what I here setup is fairly involved.

    Wow! Not such an easy order: so many parameters to consider.

    In practical terms I'd probably be quite content with Magneplanar MG 3.7i's. Other, higher-end planars include the Martin Logan CLX Art, and Sound Lab U-1PX, as well as the perennial Magneplanar 20.7.

    Appealing "box" speakers include Revel Ultima Studio 2, Wilson Alexia, Thiel CS3.7, and Raidho D3.

    ... Martin Logan
    ... Reval
    ... Wilson
    ... Thiel

    You'll probably think I'm crazy after this post. I like what my F52's do I wouldn't swap them without a good audition of the potential replacement. I know the Studio 2 should be better but if it didn't have the low end of the F52 I could still be disappointed.

    With that being said and if dreaming, I'd still love to have a room with a set of Klipsch Cornwall to build a system on.

    And they sounded awesome when I heard them. I liked them better than the Wilson Grand Slams and JM Labs Grand Utopias

    But hey, blackraven, you said that with $100M, money is not object, so why not go straight to the top-of-the line Wilson Alexandria XLF?

    More over the top craziness would include the MBL Radialstrahler X-treme. Many years ago I had some nice omni-directional speakers I always regretted selling, the Ohm F's ...

    Come to that, Ohm is still around making omni speakers that might be really nice in the right environment. Top of the line is the Ohm Walsh 5000 Tall at the relative bargain price of $6500/pr. ...

    I haven't heard these but I have heard the Alexia's but if they are anything like the Alexia's I would take them.
