Now Bro, the dream becomes a full Kondo system for you? You can well afford. Buy-Buy-Buy!
I normally don't like my speakers to be the same brand as the rest and the Westminsters have occupied my dreams for a good many years but this Kondo speaker made me take notice.

Those certainly look nice, I'd be interested in specs too. If there's one thing about the Shindo line I don't like aesthetically it's the speakers. That said I have only seen them in photos and not in person so who knows, maybe I'll be surprised if (when) I get a chance to hear/see them.

So who's the next one that's going to buy a set of speakers (Howie...wink wink)? I can feel the energy, someone's gonna do it

Me, too.

Looks too much like retro American furniture from the 40s and 50s...yeesh.

Hi Joe,

Yep, the Super 8's, for example, are very stable 8Ω so are easy on amps like the Cortese, especially in most medium sized listening rooms.

Since this is a Japanese Exotica thread, I won't delve too much on products made in USA but the DeVore Orangutan O/96 is something to also consider, due to it's high efficiency. They are a stand mounted, wider baffle speaker and a new series in his lineup. The 10" paper woofer presents music in a palpable, effortless manner.

Additionally, they don't require corner room placement.

Sincerely,
Matt

Thanks Matt. I have wanted to hear the Orangutan, but have not had a chance yet.

Excellent suggestion.
