This thread has got me thinking. Probaly useless thoughts to all others than myself, but it's nice to do some inner exploration once in a while :p

99% of all "sculptural" speakers I wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole. They remind me of that episode of Friends where Joey becomes wealthy and buys all of the most ridiculous "modern" interior decoration he can get his hands on.

I do like the look of some of those that aim for absolute minimalism. For instance these:

All of the speakers I'd like to own would be an eyesore to me in some minor degree or another, but I don't mind sacrificing a bit of aesthetics in the name of form-follows-function, as long as it doesn't become the dominant feature.

The most beautiful speakers would probably be some Dayton Audio exciters on the back of some nice artwork :D

I'm not a fan of painted MDF speakers. I like to see a nicely finished wood veneer.
You're gonna to tell me you hate my DIY effort ...

Hate is an extreme word. Being a woodworker, it's simply that I prefer objects made from nicely finished hardwood when it comes to my personal space.
