Whatever the current TOTL Revel Salon series tower is my dream speaker and has been for quite a while.

If I were a billionaire, I imagine I'd probably own KEF Metas, in one flavor or another. But I'm not a billionaire.

Some expensive Ino Audio floorstanders plus 2-4 bas modules. To make it complete I'd add many surround speakers plus center speaker.
Room would be built for this purpose. A few examples, really serious constructions

As ancient as they are I would be interested in a pair of Infinity Reference Standard IRS. I like a good thump and after lotsa time with the Infinity Kappa 9's that have some pretty good slam/thump I can imagine the IRS would be awesome too. :D

Don't dwell on it much, but would depend a lot on the room I could put it in. I'd probably lean to good commercial stuff....the silly aesthetically oriented (and often fails at) overpriced audiophile crap doesn't appeal whatsoever.

To me there is no definitive end speaker, not because it's out of reach, but because it's an illusion. My current speakers are the best I've heard. They consist of the B&O beolab 9 and the genelec 8030. When I listen to the 8030 they are my endgame. I feel the same when I listen to the beolab 9's. When I listen nothing else matters.

(I'm sure I'll change/upgrade my speakers when they are end of life. And that I'll change a preamp or a bluray to 4k or a tv to oled 4k, but it doesn't mean a thing on the scale of enjoyment. Just a quick flash of satisfaction when there's an upgrade and then that's the new normal.)

1st I would need a bigger room for bigger speakers if I would dream about big speakers, but maybe I would like to test the Genelecs, I had som old ones that I borrowed for my office some years ago and sounded amazing, I needed to returned them back. I have some Bouchards at home that I am happy with, were my dream speakers 2 years ago.

Admittedly I don't spend much time dreaming about speakers that are financially unobtainable and wouldn't suit my actual listening space. I tend to "dream" more about attainable products that would work in my listening room.
