    I owned DQ-10s, Large Advents, and stacked Large Advents in their day. Does that make me iconic? I own Quad ESL-2805s now.

    For me - US (AR4ax), UK (Rogers LS3/5a). Thats what I was dying to own way back in school days. Anything bigger would be beyond dreams.

    I would personally add Bozak Concert Grands to the list of most iconic loudspeaker of all times.

    Ones I owned and loved were the Acoustic Research AR9s.

    Iconic they may and I’ve been subjected to listening to Kloss creations on numerous occasions by my friend for example but by today’s standards, they are extremely colored and incapable of reproducing the same illusion of “being there” like the modern speakers. At least to my ears. Who wants to swap their speakers for a pair of iconic speakers?

    Quad ESL, maybe I could live with a pair of those but I’d prefer not to.

    DIY K-Horns were the rage when I was in college.....about 1970, then Bose 901's in the mid-70's.

    owned both.

    Iconic, if not great loudspeakers.
