Looking for a warm sweet speaker

That images great and resolves without etched treble. I love the british sound, but want something a little more modern sounding. The big Harbeths sound good to me, but the price is just out of my reach. Any American brands that you could suggest? In this day and age it’s getting harder to find brick and mortar dealers or even by appointment dealers that stock the type of speakers I am looking for it seems.

I have analog and digital sources.

Are you in the North Dallas area? If so, I have a pair of Focal Utopia Be for sale. They will fit your budget nicely and leave you some surplus for other upgrades.  Feel free to come by and audition them if you’re interested. 
Looking for warmth, emotion yet still detailed?  Tannoy!  American, Vandersteen.
