My measure of a truly fine loudspeaker / monitor

is that you excitedly dig up recordings you have not heard for decades, to see what is revealed, for the joy that hearing your favorite music on such a system provides. That you experience goosebumps.

The same goes for coupling a truly fine turntable/cartridge or amplifier to a truly fine speaker / monitor. Items such as the justifiably legendary Linn Sondek turntable are to be sought out and enjoyed! The same for the classic "r2d2" digital reverb, the Fairchild 670, the LA2a, the Moog oscillators combined with the Moog Filter, etc.
