For starters, however, I suggest you put a used pair of Vandersteen 2Ce's on your short list. They are an excellent, full-range speaker that does a fine job with both music and home theater. Vandy 2Ce's are often available here on Audiogon, and you can also post a "Want to Buy" ad for them. The other option to buying new is to contact Vandersteen dealers for demos or used models that they've taken in trade. I've had good luck with used Vandy speakers thru Audio Connections in New Jersey -- if you contact them, talk to John Rutan.
If you'll provide some additional info about your system and listening room, I'm sure you can get some ideas from other Audiogon regulars.
