Tell us more about your equipment, music you'd listen to, room size, etc. Do you want floor standers as an option or stick w/ a stand mount monitor like the VR1? I have these for a second system and really like them as a good value in the under 1000 range. They run on audiogon around 500-750 for the most recent sales I've seen. The Dynaudios are pretty good--like the Audience (42 or 52 for stand mount, or 72/82 for floor) series, if you have the current and power to drive them. A bit crisper than the VRs. More dynamic than the VRs but not nearly as good at low levels. That's where the VR shines--efficient, decent bass, easy to place, and good for a wide sweet spot and they sound good on their sides, tweeters firing out, placed on bookshelves, if you can place that way. There are a host of other good options under 1K but we need to know more about your associated issues above. Good luck!
