What was your first set of speakers and what did you like about it? My first set was the Bose 901 but I can't remember what series. I was blown away by the sound but as I learned more about speakers over the years, I came to realize that if a set of speakers needed a special equalizer to drive it, maybe it wasn't so great.

I can't even remember the brand of my first set of speakers. It was a long time ago and they didn't stick around very long. They were old and awful. They were also monstrous. They were given to me by one of my dad's friends and let's just say that it didn't take me long to figure out why he was willing to part with them for free.

My first set of speakers was the JBL LX2600. They're far from the best speakers I've ever owned but they're really not bad at all. I still have them but I rarely use them. I've actually been thinking about selling them.

My first set of speakers were no name bookshelf speakers I bought at a warehouse sale. The most desirable aspect of them was a really nice walnut veneer. Other than that, atrocious sounding. The cabinets later were used with my attempt with speaker building with better drivers and crossovers. It was an improvement. I then had some money to burn for some nice bookshelf Genesis loudspeakers that served me for many years. Eventually I graduated to speaker building when I learned some woodworking skills. I built some nice dynaudio MTM bookshelf's that I augmented with stereo, (before stereo was cool) isobaric subwoofers. Pi speakers entered my life when I immersed into tube amplification. They have proven to be capable of satisfying my personal quest for high fidelity sound that I've not felt an urge to improve upon.
