I guess I am a bit old-fashioned when I still see a quality set of speakers as being constructed of just the right mix of components. B&O, German Physiks and Hansen Audio are those that dreams are made of one day when I win the lottery. Even then, I think I might still cringe at the price one can attain for true audio perfection. That said, the real world becomes a bit different where pure audio isn’t enough and most aspire to build systems that might accommodate their music pleasures, just as it might home theater. Recent years have seen my system accommodating JBL, Bose and Wharfedale in order to find that perfect mix.
