Someone's asking $2K for a pair of VMPS RM 40 ribbon towers on A'gon right now. I doubt that there are many speakers out there that will produce the kind of high output below 30hz that these will (I assume that meets your description for rock and HT use). Off a brief audition some time back, I'd say that they also sound very good.
Great suggestions so far. Has any body got any input on the following speakers for sale right now on the Gon? In particular with an eye towards my needs for home theater and classic rock?
-Tyler Acoustics Ref III $2000
-Tyler Acoustics Linbrook Supertowers $1500
-Legacy Audio Classics $1500
-Alon Model Is $690
_Alon Model II Time Aligned $550
-Dynaudio Contour T2.5 $1950
-NHT 2.9 $800
-PSB Image 6T
a new pair of cornwalls can be bought and delivered through amazon for about 2600 bucks. heresys for even less(1600)...given whats out there that is a 'great allrounder', thats a steal, if a bit overbudget. ohm 100's direct as well for a bit less. in both cases, a product that is a killer value(THEY ROCK), and does classical music as well. Used, the usual suspects...chapman, dunlavy, hales, psb.....
Thanks everybody for your input. I finally decided to go with a pair of Von Schweikert VR4s which I was able to find on a VS owners website for under $2K. I am eagerly awaiting their arrival. Should be about a week from now. Will let everyone know how they match up with my vintage McIntosh gear. Now, if I can only find some lead shot to load them with here in Hawaii.
I guess I'm too late to chime in here but I can't believe you guys overlooked the pair of Hales Revelation Threes for sale right now here on Audiogon. Even ten years on from when they were new there is still hardly anything being sold today that can hold a candle to those babys for overall sound and VALUE! If you have a good amp they would have been on my short-list for sure! -jz
