JBL 4412 Studio Monitors.
They were made in 1986, so don't exactly belong here, but are evolved from the fantastic 4310s and 4311s from the seventies. I get excited about all vintage JBLs, but the professional speakers really get me going. These rock! I haven't spent enough time with them yet (I don't know if that's even possible), but can say that they sound as good as any JBL I've had here.
Fun Fact: in 1981 66% of all majour american recording studios used JBLs, and 22 out of Billboard's top 25 albums were recorded and mixed using JBL's monitors.
