    What's your favorite small or bookshelf speaker?

    So far my Klipsch P-17b's have captured my attention but I do admit that the sound stage is a little bit flat. They don't seem to have quite as much depth as some of my other speakers.

    Is there an ultimate small speaker? As long as treble and mid range are great, I'm happy.

    Thoughts and recommendations? I'm considering adding one more to the stable.

    I really want to hear a pair of Diapason Adamantes, but looks to be a tall order

    Joe,

    On the truly "small" side of the loudspeaker spectrum, I'd say the Harbeth P3ESR's are a safe bet. Exceptional midrange, good highs, great build-quality, and pretty good imaging to boot! The upcoming Totem Acoustic 'SKY' looks extremely promising for the money. On the more affordable side of the spectrum, the new Dynaudio Emit's are receiving raves reviews. On the more fringe side of things, the Fritz Morel 6's pack good all-around performance that's difficult not to enjoy.

    The list can go on and on. It can also get rather pricey. Just depends on how far down the rabbit hole you wanna go.

    On the topic of Klipsch: I certainly wouldn't mind revisiting the Heresy III's again. Talk about a wickedly fun speaker!

    I just picked up a pair of the V2+'s. They are tiny, beautifully finished, image like crazy and sound absolutely wonderful.
