Also, has the need to upgrade bitten you lately.
I will go out on a limb here to say that my B&W 804S speaker never sounded so good with tubes but I still have that urge to upgrade to a better mid-range speaker.
Let the list begin!

Forgot to mention I also have two Mirage BPS150i bipolar subs. One for the left channel and one for the right.
Over the years I have also owned:
Apogee Caliper Signature
Paradigm Studio 40 v2
GR Research N3
My wife has been very tolerant....

Radio Shack Realistic Little David copies
Dynaco A-25s and Dynaco A-35s (still have and use the A-35s in the den)
ESS Heil AMTs
Vandersteen 2 CE Signatures w/ single 2W subwoof, and 5 AC Carbons
Tyler Acoustics D12Xs
I parted with the big Vandies for need of some bread, but am hugely happy with the Tylers. Great sound-staging, effortless tonal response throughout the audio spectrum, and arse-kickin' bass if you want it. Phenomenal design, and at 200 lbs each they ain't going anywhere.
And I thought I was NUTS!! lol

(Edge Audio, AV123, Definitive Technology) as well as Paradigm, Polk, B&W and Klipsch. Still have the AV123 speakers as they were great deals. Recently I'm running a pair of NHT SuperZero 2.1 off my ST120. They have a slightly more detailed tweeter than the others however even with upgraded crossovers they don't quite have the transparency I'm looking for.
My next dream speaker is the Magnepan MMG. They sound ridiculously good for $600 and I'm sure can be tweaked into better performance. But I have to wait until either I can sell some speakers or pay off my credit card. Whichever comes first.
