Well, this club has been sitting on the edge of necessity for some time now, and I personally think it's time to deliver on the goods.

On with the details:

1) Purpose and concepts:

What is the purpose of a speaker club? Simply put, it brings us audio guys together in a group that can support, encourage, and necessitate growth across all facets of the hobby. If you need proof that a club can do all of this, look to this thread's sister, the OCN Headphone Club, as the quintessential example. At this point a speaker club offers just as much potential, if not more due to the fact that in the full hobby of audio, speakers remain the dominant animal of stereo and surround listening.

2) Membership and parameters:

Membership is site-wide, but limited insofar as to the particular sort of gear a member is running in his audio setup.

With a few other select members, we briefly discussed any limitations or parameters needed to be set on acceptance into the club. We did this because certain brands, names, sorts are simply not up to standards with what is consistently deemed as quality across the entire hobby of audio. The issue is, of course, that a brand such as Logitech, which is truly not a quality product as far as speakers go, has reached a niche market in the pc-enthusiast world and maintains popularity in it. I personally feel that someone truly engaged and interested in speakers will have moved beyond Logitech, etc., at a certain point or is considering doing so eventually. As such, we have agreed to exclude Logitech and any other pc-based speaker brandings from acceptance into the club. As of now, any and all speaker brands that reach beyond pc-intention, including stereo and HTIB, are deemed acceptable and fit within the parameters of the club. For now, specific sets such as Klipsch ProMedia's and Swan M10's, both of which are pc-based for all intents and purposes, are not deemed to fit within these parameters.

Yes, this may stir up some controversy, but for now these are the parameters. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.

3) Organization and layout:

Namrac will be heading up managing membership and keeping track of the list. For the time being, layout of the membership list will be in line with the headphone club for a more streamlined pairing. It is my wish to have the listing organized into speaker type (planar/electrostatic, dynamic, full range, etc.), but this is still in the works.

I've no idea what kind of level they're on, but I have M-Audio BX5a studio monitors. Upgraded from Logitech X-230, so I guess I qualify considering:

I got active speakers because I didn't really have room for an amplifier, or I'd have got some B&W DM601 and a Marantz amp.

Anyway!

We will make a decision on that asap. Klipsch as a brand moves far beyond pc usage, but this particular set is directly meant for pc's, which makes it sort of sit in between the lines.

I will follow up for ya.

Bet they cost a lot, look awesome.

My speakers were 1/3 of my pay that month, although I don't earn that much, part time.

Yeah, it was a choice between these, the Tannoy F1's (which I heard great things about but I thought they sounded aweful) or the warfedale 9.1's. I prefered the KEF's sound quality and the walnut finish is gorgeous
I need to get a better picture of them

I'll take some pictures of my setup. Does Audioengine A2's count on Auralex Iso Pads and Essence STX sound card count?

I might pick up some A5's for my HDTV

For slogan: We take our Sound SERIOUSLY =)
