For $3500, you will have a hard time finding a better, full-range speaker than the Vandersteen 3A Signature. I listen to a lot of acoustic music (jazz, blues, and classical), and I think the 3A Sig's do an outstanding job, particularly in a larger room where they produce a fine soundstage. You can sometimes find Vandy 3A Signatures on the used market for $2600-2800. I recommend them highly.
sdcampbell's post is one reason why ya gotta listen for yerself, imho - i've heard vandy's before, in shows & at stores, & they never did *anything* for me - seemed slow, veiled, w/no imaging to speak of. yet, they have a wery avid following. so, take these comments as a starting point, & go listen... i admit i'm considering the newforms, which i can't audition, but w/a 30-day in-home trial period, isle only be out return shipping if they aren't *it*. i may yust risk it.
