Everybody welcome back and welcome to another fabulous music Monday to everyone that is new to this site my name is David.
And I just want to say welcome to this site and welcome to one of the articles that we do here in my office.
Kind of regularly now since they’ve turned out to be really popular and I thought today would be a lot of fun seeing as how it’s Monday we’re kicking off the new week and to get a discussion started.
Because today we will be breaking down my ten best loudspeakers of all time this list is in no particular order and it is meant to be fun.
It is meant to spark conversation and to see what your lists are down in the comments below let’s not hesitate let’s not delay things anymore these are my ten best loudspeakers of all time according to me.
This article basically divided in 2 parts. And this is part no 1 if you want to check out the Second part then you can check out here.
1. PARADIGM ATOM/MINI-MONITOR
This is two speakers, but the paradigm atom or mini monitor for me represented and still represents one of the best if not the best most iconic entry point into higher and loudspeakers.
And these speakers are still in production to this day the versions that I have I think were versioned three versions to our versions three so we’re going way back.
But nevertheless, they are a great entry point they are a fantastic speaker and I argue that for 90% of hi-fi enthusiasts out there with small to medium-sized rooms modest budgets and simple electronics the paradigm atom or mini monitor loud speaker gets it done.
2. MAGNEPAN 1.6
The next one on my list is the Magnepan1.6 now it would have been the magnet pan three point six.
And because the three-point six is just a phenomenal loudspeaker and better than the one point six in every conceivable way say for one affordability.
I owned both the one point six and the three-point six as well as several pairs of the MMG and while the MMG is special in its own right.
The one point six really is in my opinion the butter zone of the entire Magna pant product catalog and it embodies and possesses 95% if not more of what makes Magna pan so special.
It is offered at a relatively affordable price and it fits in more environments that are to say for a large speaker it’s not as large as other Magna pan designs and it’s not as small as the MMG.
But because the MMG is so small there are so many other limitations to that design that the 1.6 for me gets the nod as one of my favorite loudspeakers of all time.

3. MARTINLOGAN CLS II
Next up and this should come as no surprise especially if you read any of the articles last week but MartinLogan CLS II– loudspeaker.
Now, this can be the MartinLogan CLS II-a or to Z because I have heard them all and they were incrementally better with each iteration.
Suffice to say that MartinLogan’s CLS design went from being unique and intriguing and good to downright spooky and great when they went from the CLS to the CLS II.
And there isn’t much else to say if you want my full and honest opinion on the CLS – you really should check out last week’s article where I talked about one of my sound demos from hell.
I know that doesn’t sound like a ringing endorsement for the CLS – but bear with me it is a story that if you are a die-hard audio file or hi-fi enthusiasts probably going to want to check out and I’ll link to that in the description below.
4. KLIPSCH LA SCALA
next on this list is the Klipsch la Scala, I know I don’t talk a lot about clips on this site I’ve done but one Clips review which is the heresy 3 the heresy 4 is in house and is coming by the way.
But truth be told I am actually a big fan of clips and one of the things that I am a big fan of is all of their heritage line of speakers which have been in constant production this whole time.
That is to say, since they were devised some decades ago and the less Kalla for me is just it belongs in a museum-like it’s just art to me.
and the fact that it also sounds good is just icing on the cake I have only heard the La Scala a handful of times I’ve never owned it in my own home something I do hope to rectify in the not-too-distant future.
And as taken aback as I have been by its looks it is always the raw effortless kind of presence and rule and live sound.
That the La Scala has possessed that just it boggles my mind and every time I hear it I am reminded of what makes that loudspeaker so freak in special.
5. JBL Professional CSS-1S/T
the next on this list and again this is in no particular order is the JBL L 100 and I am talking about the L 100 in all of its iterations that means the pass all the way to the present L 100 classic.
Because for me it is not only the quintessential JBL loudspeaker and JBL is a loudspeaker manufacturer that needs no introduction.
but it is one of if not the single most iconic loudspeakers of all time, chances are you may not even know what an l 100 is but if I showed you a picture of one you would instantly go oh that speaker.
And the fact that it has had that kind of an impact not only on hi-fi an audiophile culture but just pop culture in general.
And it also sounds freaking fantastic especially the new one makes it a no-brainer for this list and one of my favorite loudspeakers of all time.
so that’s it that is my 10 best loudspeakers of all time according to me what do you guys think what do you guys think how did I do.
So if you want to check out the first part of this article then you can check out here.
Because honestly, I do think these lists as entertaining as they are also very helpful for people because you may be writing something down.
Or I may have said something in this article that someone hasn’t heard of before and so at the very least they make Google it fall down a rabbit hole.
And find their dream loudspeaker whether that loudspeaker is something as esoteric or high-end is Wilson audio Sophia or a paradigm Adam so please but tell me what you think of this article.
