Give Dynaudios a try, esp if you like bass.

Yes, couple of my friends using the China made grounding box with positive results.
Mostly go with silver grounding cable as they felt copper less effective in their system.

Hi Seth,

Are you using passive or active speakers?
If wired on passive, what speakers are you using now?
In what kind of room/hall size ?

Hi Chctap,

For active speakers, most of the brands are coming from pro audio industry, but there are some made HiFi brands make for home theatre that you can also use for HiFi listening. Some of the brands you can consider are

Adam Audio
Eve Audio
Yamaha
Mackie
KRK 
ATC
KEF
Focal Audio
PMC

What kind of budget range you have in mind?
I believe you can get most bookshelf under $1k, but the better one usually cost much more. Floorstander will be even higher.

HiFi Audio Equipment Discussion / Active Loudspeakers

Hi,

Due to limited space in my small home, I'm getting rid of my existing amplifier, CD player and floorstanding loudspeakers.
I'm thinking of using an active loudspeaker to play the songs from my iPhone.
I've listened to the Klipsch R-15PM power speakers and the Klipsch The Sixes. What other active loudspeakers would you recommend? I usually listen to English and Chinese songs. I prefer to have more bass (floorstanding speakers tend to have more bass) but the bass must not too loose.
Thank you.

Hey brother Zaid,

Glad to hear from you again!

Ok, regarding your latest requirement, may I suggest something else?

1. Since the speaker is over 40-50m away from your source/amp, and it is going to be outdoor. Please consider those active PA speaker because they are more robust. Also with active speaker, you no need to worry which huge power AVR you need too because the further the speakers are, signal will drop too. Unless there are no power point at where you going to mount the speakers then no choice but to get passive speakers.
Check this link for the price and models for some ideas and consideration https://www.gearank.com/guides/powered-pa-speakers

2. Instead of a domestic AVR, please seriously consider a pro audio industry mixer, maybe one with at least 10 mono tracks to meet your need of 9 channels. But if you need 9 stereo channels, then you will need a 20-24 channels mixer. Bare in mind some are stereo channels. So find out how many mono or stereo tracks you need. By having pro audio mixer, you can connect any equipments, source and microphone onto it. And best of all each tracks has a gain & volume control for you to set. It is easy to use too once you set up.
If source from computer, then just output from the laptop analogue headphone port or use USB output to a mixer that has USB input. In this case, you can set your volume from computer, mixer or even at active powered speaker. You can blast the entire industrial park liao  :P
Check this out for some ideas http://www.wirerealm.com/guides/top-10-best-audio-mixers

3. Speaker cable just use Belden enough. Cheap and good.

All and all probably cost less than $2k if you buy brand new. And likely less than $1k if you buy used  ;)

Do not hesitate to ask if you have other queries.
Keep us update.
Cheers!
My worry now is, now that I'm going with a wired setup, what kind of receiver do I need?
