For me personal it was the Usher in black I thought it was beautifull and sounded the same with all the music I heard on it, but boy was it heavy. Had to put giant anchors in the wall to hold the dedicated shelf:bigsmile:
These were heard with a sub and they needed it, but music was sooo sweet from them, full, defined and detailed.

Mackie HR824 active monitors. Probably tied with the JBL LS6328P's. Genelec's were up there too but I didn't spend as much time with them, so I can't say. Don't remember the exact model of Genelec's either.

Little hard to put that one on a bookshelf:dizzy:
Why? I have a friend who had his Large Advents in his bookshelf for 20 years.

Maybe this deserves another thread. I wonder how many of us actually use bookshelf speakers on bookshelves. The problem with the whole idea of bookshelf speakers, IME, is that they don't sound very good on bookshelves, just like free standing speakers. I usually placed them on stands anyway to get them away from the walls. So do you actually use them on bookshelves?

Your right on that for sure:) I am going to modify my first vote to the B&W 805s. On a stand:innocent:

Heard the Wilson bookshelves a few weeks ago. They were pretty amazing. They have a price tag to go along with it though. Have always loved the sound of the B&W 800 series bookshelf.
