I have looked/listened to this genre of speaker for about a year and do love the Proac 1SC. If you want new you have to settle for less, for example, the JM Reynauds at about $800. I have listened to Reference 3As, B&W 805s, Aerial Acoustics 5s and a good many others. I recently purchased Ty Lashbrook's "Tyler Acoustics Reference Monitors" via this forum as demos; he also has minimonitors. The reference monitors are great and no complaints about the service: very personable. www.tyleracoustics.home.mindspring.com
If you can find a used pair of ProAc Tablette Signature 50's I think you will be surprised how close they come to the 1SC's. Some prefer the Tab Sig 50 over the 1SC. The only problem is the signature version rarely come up for sale. They are between $900 and $1000 used. They retailed at $1700 new. Good luck...
