ignoring the "bling" how much for state of the art ?

Really? I’ve heard them and they’re great but a horn and a big paper driver in a big box are hardly pushing the envelope of technology!

I thought the drivers themselves did have novel elements to their design, plus there is the particular waveguide used. Really though I was thinking in terms of being state of the art in terms of measured performance rather than how this had been achieved.

Also I actually said it's what came to my mind - I've not actually researched this :).

These are currently  amongst  ‘state of the art’.

Oh don't get me wrong I do think there is a debate to be had about whether a truly optimal system should be restricted to large speakers or if a sub or subs may have a role. My original post was responding to the idea of a state of the art system only having standmount speakers.

My standmounts certainly need assistence to become 'state of the art', if 2007 would be your point of reference that is. 😁

But I gave owned floorstanders that started dropping near 50Hz as well, which is why I bought my first REL in the first place.

My point would be that most floorstanders miss out on the lowest octaves as well, so how 'state of the art' would they be?

I also know of someone owning B&W 800s, with a pair of subs, and a guy owning Linn Komris also having a pair of subs. Even within 'state of the art' one can achieve both more state and art.

With that in mind, I prefer standmounts over floorstanders as they are less intruisive, and the subs can take care of the lower end.

PS Don't underestimate your BK compared to large floorstanders. They can match and surpass speakers well above their price range.

I don't believe I do :). As well as my own experience the measured performance of the BK Monolith is surprisingly good.
