Room size, music taste, and associated equipment would be a good thing to include. Otherwise people will have a tough time making suggestions.

I would include the Focus Audio 788 into the mix. They are 5500 - 6000 new I beleive. Incredibly beautiful cabinet work, imaging which can be breathtaking, Revelator tweeter...done right. I have heard some of the most dynamic and clear sound from these things that is just astounding. I have heard them at the last few Montreal audio shows and they are only 2 ways but out perform most 3 ways I have heard. Unless you have a huge room they are worth an audition. For two way speakers...they are bettered only by the Merlins IMO... but the Merlins will run you 8K+. Check em out.
I second Tyler Linbrook Sig or Taylo Ref3 and it is a mystery to me why folks living in the US who have the possibility to simply return the Tyler within 20 days for a full refund (except shipping) do not systematically put these on their list. I am jealous, here is the plain truth! Not that Tyler speakers will fit the bill for everybody but owning these for 20 days is a must for benchmarking.
