Need small speaker for less than $750. Ideas?

Hello All,

I sold my maggies (got divorced 1.5 years ago).
Since that time I have been using Senn 600 headphones.
I have a room mate so my system is in my bedroom.
So I need some bookshelf's or small floor standers.

Looking for a killer monitor.
Things I want:
-true to the music
-lots of texture
-hear the layers of music
-accurate but not fatuging
-neutral (maybe a dash slightly warm)
-good air
-sound stage
-fun to listen too
-human voice is important
-accurate tone
-true to the music - (I said this twice on purpose)

Things I don't need:
-deep bass
-load volume

Please remember I was a maggie owner and loved them.
If I could get anything it would be some Quad 57's.
For bookshelf's if I had the money it would be some Focus Audio 688's, or some Verity Audio's.

What are some others to consider?
I listen to all types of music.
Right now I am thinking some Spender 3/5's.


BTW: Amp is a Blue Circle CS.
hi Bbro:

if you had to choose between the spendor or the rogers, which would you select and why ?
A friend of mine mentioned that the 3/5a's can sound dry and boring.
Any thoughts on this?
I will not be using a tube amp.
I am using my Blue Circle CS which is a tad warm.

Are all 3/5'a like this?
I hear the spendors are the warmest of th bunch.

They merge Seamlessly with the REL Storm III which along with adding great pure bass also makes the S 3/5's even more pure, tactile, visceral, and even holographic then they already are without the REL in the system. On of the bests sounds I have heard bar none in both small and large rooms. Hope this helps...
Definitely the Spendors would be a good way to go IMO. A couple others you may also wish to consider are the Opera Audio Consonance Eric-1s and the GMA Europas.
