Good speakers are a necessity. They don’t necessarily have to be huge to sound great, however looking good is always a plus.
Exeluxe sells these amazing Custom HiFi Speakers. They can be made for you in almost any color you choose. They look like vintage Fender guitar amps, but they are actually high quality home stereo speakers. They are constructed with high-quality Audax coaxials, 5 1/4" drivers plus 1"dome tweeter. The speaker dimensions are 11.5"x12.5"x7". At $295 they are not inexpensive, but not at all near the high end of audio equipment.
If you have read my previous Etsy posts you know that I’m a big advocate for buying hand made.
