Not floor standing speakers. But if you heard these under optimal conditions it may not matter. Spica TC-50 or TC-60

I have an appt in two weeks to listen to the Spendor D9.2 at Sound by Singer in Manhattan. They are still closed for demos.As twoleftears mentioned, the D series Spendors are not the same as the SP100 line. The D7 is prety bright and unforgiving. I've not heard the D9 but exercise caution on these.
@twoleftears Thank you. I will ask the dealer (SBS) about the Spendor Classic line.
@joey54 Thx - you are 3rd person to mention that audio shop. They are only 40 minutes from me so I will email them about the Vandersteens.
@geoffkait Hi thanks for the reply but where did I mention wide soundstage and lots of air. I dont even know what lots of air means. Ive never heard a wide soundstage in a lounge, have you?? Oh and do you have any recommendations?
@fsonicsmith What points to sterile and analytical? Was it imaging x3? Where speakers disappear -- is that analytical? I said I wasnt looking for fatiguing treble energy -- you've confused me because I've been told the exact opposite by most others that fatiguing treble energy is analytical and sterile. And when you ask if I'm sincere, do you really mean I just don't know what I'm talking about or I'm not telling the truth? Anyway, that being said, any recommendations?
@steakster Thank you! I started to do searches but its a bit overwhelming for me and opinions and recommendations change all the time. But yes my current speakers image really well - blows me away; just looking for that and more. Do you have any recommendations for imaging, tone and coherency?
@verdantaudio Thx. I thought Raidho caters to the uber wealthy with $250,000 speakers? I'll check out Avantgarde.
@marqmike Thx. I will check them out but my fiancee hates stands in her living room but she is amicable to large piano black towers, lol
@noromance Thx again! Hows the 200 line? Taking notes....
Raidho has wonderful speakers that start at $5900 and yes, do go up to $240,000 but the two models I suggested could be purchased in your price range new or used. Like I said, PM me to discuss pricing in more detail.
They are really worth your time and the soundstage and imaging are...addictive. They are super flexible in terms of what amps work with them.
Avantgarde cannot be sold on-line. Info can be found here but both products are comfortably in your price range.
