Couldn't agree more, not sure how companies like Edifier, Audioengine or Kanto got overlooked in a discussion of powered speakersWas so excited to see this list, then disappointed with the silly recommendations. Dynaudio, Kii etc? Seriously — get these reviewers to find less over priced and esoteric tripe. Edifier S3000Pro or Kanto TUK should be in this list. Far cleaner, warmer and more well rounded sound than the usual fare like KEF or the bass heavy B&W, or the hard to find stuff like acoustic energy. Hope the next round of these is a list from 2020, not 2011.

Totally. It shows how little knowledge this whole publication has of the HiFi market now a days. I really don't know what they are doing. If you look at how many reviews they do it's crazy. They seem to do less than one a week.Couldn't agree more, not sure how companies like Edifier, Audioengine or Kanto got overlooked in a discussion of powered speakers
