http://www.bswa.org so many great talks here.
I especially enjoy the insight of Ajahn Brahmali when he discusses some of the more difficult topics in his easy to understand manner.

I've been listening recently to talks by Ajahn Sundara and would recommend them highly. She's a French-born nun who now resides at Amaravati monastery in the UK.

Ajahn Sundara is one of the most inspiring people I have ever met.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

Troves of talks from Ajahn Brahm and others are to be found here:
http://www.youtube.com/user/BuddhistSocietyWA

There are also quite a few on the BSWA website that aren't on this Youtube channel.

Oh, and I really like what I've seen and heard from Ajahn Jayasaro. So if anyone can provide more links, I would much appreciate it.

The "Dhamma talks in America" have been most helpful to me. They start on page 3 and go to page 5. The only problem is that they are not in any particular order so you may want to look through them all first. The "Samsaric Buddhism" lecture is a good place to start.

Im not sure you will find more dhamma talks on one site than u will this one.

:anjali:
To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

[quote="sattva"]Hi all!
I have a question. Because of my eyesight or lack there of, i find reading difficult. i do enjoying downloading and listening to Dharma talks. What teachers do you think give great Dharma talks? Although this is in the Discovering Theravada forum, i am open to all traditions. Who is your favorite teacher to listen to?[/quote
Ajahn Yuttadhammo has a ton of dhamma talks:

http://yuttadhammo.sirimangalo.org/audio/albums/

I think the best teachers can be charismatic types but I tend to like obscure teachers
