If possible you might want to expound a little on what type of sound characteristics you are looking for or are important to you as they would lead to better recommendations. Also are you looking to buy new or used or either?
Anyway, the Dali Zensor 1 looks like a pretty nice speaker if you're looking new. I've heard the Silverline Minuet and think it's fantastic although just a bit above your price target unless you get a used pair -- but worth stretching a bit for imho. Other brands worth looking into are Epos, Wharfdale, KEF, and Dynaudio. In that price range I'd probably stick to monitors as most floorstanders will probably have some significant sonic compromises or flaws.
Hope this helps, and best of luck.
thanks a lot for your advice guys.
I want to listen to different kinds of music. From Pink Floyd and rock, Miles Davis, Beatles, to Mozart, Tchaikovsky, etc...
I love bass. I would like to really have some bass. But I also love clean and clear sound so I guess it would have to do more with budget.
My room is about 9 sq meters. Wooden floors and high ceiling, no padding on the walls.
Thanks a lot guys!!
If you can live with some minor cosmetic damage and don't mind older, used speakers, there are many good deals on speakers right here on Audiogon. One example is a pair of Linn Keilidhs for $375 with missing grills. If they are in good working order (it says they are), that is a lot of speaker for the money. There are many others, as well.
