Forget sound for a moment. Which speakers are the best looking on the market. Cheap or expensive. Stand Mount and Floor-stander

My floor-stander vote is the Monitor Audio RX6. Even with the shower tray attachment on the bottom. Perfect floor standing dimensions.

My stand mount is the Dali Mentor Minuet. so sexy

I do love my BX2's with the grills off.

The KEF Muon's are my choice but at more real world money then the Dali Fazon F5 is the one.

RE: Best looking speakers on the market

I know I've posted shots of these a number of times, but there's something about these little Onkyo D-TK10 that just do it for me.

I think the compact size has something to do with it. They don't sound too bad to my ears either.

I'm also a fan of Sonus Faber Cremona and B&W 805s.

I've long loved the looks of the Scandyna range.

Now also in a 5.1 set-up (look at that Centre speaker! It's certainly looking at you....):

Scandyna Cinepod

Hardly Hi-Fi, but I've always liked these little media speakers...

Either Kef Reference 201's in Beech with silver stands, or B&W Nautilus 800's. I'm a sucker for that midrange pod and external tweeter.

 

I do see what Limey means though, Monitor Audio definetly struck a chord with the look of the RX series, RX8's in piano black are lovely!

You've not seen my EV Sentrys then? No fabric on them. They look like something from the Little Shop of Horrors that needs feeding.

 

I only ever like wardrobe sized speakers because I don't paticularly enjoy listening to rock or pop music on anything smaller.
