You are making quite an upgrade in quality, size (weight), and expense compared to your current speakers. I only have experience with the VR4 JR's so I can't advise you on speaker choice. I will say that if it were me, and I was buying used at Audiogon with no ability to audition in my room first, I would buy the speakers and then focus on pairing them up with electronics that make a good-sounding match. Selling, boxing up, and shipping electronics that didn't work out is much easier and simpler than selling, boxing up, and shipping heavy speakers. (been there done that) My advice is buy the speakers first, then get good deals on electronics and sources here so that if you need to sell them, you can get most or all your funds back. Keep trying electronics and sources until you find what makes the best music with your speakers.
