Part of what your hearing must be speakers BUT it’s the tubes that give them life!

Used speakers, even well-known major brand speakers, sell for a fraction of their original MSRP. My advice would be to spend that $3K budget on a used pair. You’re very smart to consider resale value in advance. Big brands, at big discounts, are what sell here on Agon as well as other sites. Don’t be seduced by some new company, without any history or track record of good service selling their products at cheap prices. They know what their product is worth better than anyone. As an example, I doubt that you would have any trouble selling those Vandersteens.
Thank you all for your comments. What strikes me is that NO ONE from Audiogon (including the posts from pre-2011) seems to have direct experience with the TC50, although many have owned or heard other models of Piega. I still think they sounded great in the showroom, but what this tells me is I'm likely to have a terrible time if I ever want to sell them.
I have been using Piegas for 6 years I have the P4L with Croft epoch elite and twin star 1amps. Streaming from Melco and chord 2qute dac. I love the open spacious sound the vocals are amazing. I have just ordered blind the Piega classic 40.2 which arrive tomorrow. Can't wait to hook them up. I am using a mix of chord chorus inter connects and LFD speaker cable. Mainly listening to classic Rock. Can't wait.
