Best moderately priced speakers for classical music


I mostly listen to classical music and some jazz.  The violin is my favorite instrument and I am looking for speakers that make this particular instrument sound the closest to the real thing.  When I say moderately priced, I mean speakers that I might find used for less than $5,000.  I have a Lyngdorf TDAI-2200 integrated and Lynn Unidisk SC player.  I'm probably not going to change anything but my speakers (Tyler Decade D20).  I like the speakers I have, but my room is rather small and the huge Tylers are a bit much for certain recordings and genres. I look forward to your suggestions.  Thanks

maxthedog, great post. I enjoyed reading it. I have a lot of friend who are musicians and use either Vandersteen's or Maggie's.  Billy Drummond uses both speakers in his home systems.  Many of us who listen to music more than we listen to 'gear' agree that there isn't a right speaker for a specific genre.  A nice 'flat in the room' type of speaker matched with great gear will be highly satisfying on anything you want to listen to.  

Most who love music that is truly full range will want a floor stander that has more bass (as long as it's a speaker that can reproduce bass properly).  
For orchestral, opera or any complex music I strongly agree with the recommendations for Shahinian, Larsen or Ohm.  The Larsens can be (must be) placed directly against the wall, the others will vary based on your room.  Only radiating, omnidirectional speakers can even try to resemble a concert hall venue.  All can be purchased new for under $5K (lower models) and all are often available on the used market.

In a small room I would look at the Shahinian Elf and the Larsen 4 or 6.  I have never tested an Ohm speaker so I won't recommend a specific model but I have heard them several times and they sounded very good.

Just FWIW dept.: speaker don't care what music you play through them. The qualities that make for a speaker that plays classical well are exactly the same qualities that make it good for rock or folk music as well. The idea that a speaker is somehow particularly suited for a certain genre of music is entirely mythological, and likely the most predominant myth in audio.
Klipsch Heresy IIIs with a couple of subs are in your price range...put good amps in front of them and let the fun begin. Atmasphere is absolutely correct about good speakers not caring what they're playing, except my Heresy IIIs can't play certain mumblecore or shoe gaze stuff because, hey, I won't let them (so I guess it's just me).
Ohm walsh. New or used.  If used they can be repaired or upgraded.  

Good speakers for anyone that likes that live big sound.
