This is a little test of your memories

The first set of separate speakers I owned were by Yamaha in the '80's and my addiction began, although I had an extended sabbatical ~20 years from hi-fi when I got into computers. Logitech of all companies was the catalyst that got me back into speakers although i'm sure some of you own speakers that are worth more than all of mine combined over the years. I include subwoofers as separate speakers

So here's the list:

Yamaha (X2)
Akai
Paisley Research (X2)
Acoustic Authority
Sony
Altec Lansing
Logitech (X4)
Klipsch
Edifier
Audioengine (X2)
M-Audio
Corsair
Paradigm (X2)
Kanto

Polks, I forget the model. My first pair.
Vandersteen 3A. If I could travel back in time, I would have stopped there and prevented myself from going overboard to:
Avalon Radian and then Eidolon.
Began experimenting with home theater and tried various subs from
Hsu, including the long cylindrical one.
Bag End, those were fun.
Not happy with Avalon and tried
Totem Forest, too much port noise, Hawk and Storm sub. I began being driven insane about how the gear was overtaking my home and returned full circle back to 2 channel and got my final speaker:
Vandersteen 2CE Signature 2. I've had those over 10 years now.
 
Marantz 4G (1976 - still owned the first as I was still young)
Cabasse Clipper (1983 - bought new - still own another pair)
Linn Sara (1990 - bought new still owned)
B&W 802N (2003 - bought new still owned as my main pair)
Cabasse Sampan 303 (1985)
Altec 606 (!) (1953 - in restoration)
Kek Coda 7 (1995 - bought new still owned)
Kef 102 (1986 - still owned)
Royd Sintra (? - still owned)
Bertagni U60 and D60 (1976 - in restoration)
Pioneer HPM 100 (1977 - still owned)
Scott S-15 (1974 - still owned)
Supravox t215 srtf
Behringer i don't remember the model

Not a lot but I don't sell a lot of stuff, so there is a pair in almost every room.
