I would like to see the very underrated. Highly unpopular Phase Techs make it. They would never make a popularity contest. But they do sound good.

None of my votes are in the lead. I really really would like the Ventos to be in

I believe those are $5k and $6k (pr) respectively, so not really "that kind of money". Plus they have way higher WAF than anything here .
I with you on the HE and DI thing in the real world of rooms/systems though.
Ahh, got it. Thought these were $3000 speakers, not $3k/pair.

Well, $3k should pretty much cover a pair of Geddes Nathans. That should be on the list!

I guess if there's anything in the list that is comparable to the Nathans then I'd be interested in those too. Suggestions?

Sonnie
Thanks for the message to vote but I have absolutely no clue what so ever about these speakers. Any uniformed vote of mine would merely be reflective of advertising or subliminal thought control effort by someone. I do applaud your efforts to tackle this endeavor and look forward to the results.
Good luck.
Roll Tide and go War Eagles!

Agreed. An excellent performing product that is still Made in the USA with excellent manufacturer support. There aren't many around, anymore.

I had a really hard time deciding on which six to vote for. This should be an interesting comparison.

No Klipsch speakers are one of the nominated choices. In order for your vote to count, vote from one of the choices in the multiple choice/multiple selection pole.

Re: $3,000 Speaker Evaluation Event - Nominated Speakers Voting Poll

I voted for a couple of brands/models that I have perused previously, but I must admit I am not familiar with the vast majority of the suggestions - so I did some quick googling and select the ones that piqued my interest. There are some really interesting speakers out there, and I think this event will result in two possible outcomes: all of these not-inexpensive speakers will perform well, with only very minor differences that might impact subjectivity; or there will be a small bunch of speakers (one or three models) that perform well above the rest of the crowd, and it might not be obvious why (and may not be the "obvious" brands).

Very curious to see how this plays out.
