Upgrade Itch

I need your opinion.I am looking to upgrade my speakers.I am particually fond of Hales Rev 3's and PSB Stratus Golds.I am also considering Vandy 3a's.I will be buying second hand.My amplification is Classe,and I would also use them as my main's for home theatre.Any opinions?
How much do you have to spend, what kind of music do you like, and what characteristics are you seeking in your speakers?

If you don't want to spend a lot of money then one choice that jumps off the page at me in light of what you have now would be the nOrh 9, which I think is a very fine reproducer at a very reasonable price. It is better than the Hales and a LOT better than the PSB. Depending on your taste, you may want to consider a well-disciplined sub to go with them.

Another option if you can spend more would be the Hales Trans 5, another wonderful speaker. At that price point, though, there are lots to choose from.

Good luck!
I had Hales Revelation III in my system driven by a Classe Ten. Wonderfull speakers, very neutral, easy to drive, soundstage great, good dynamics. They pretty much like to be placed along the long wall, about 1/3 the width of your room away from the wall, as far from each other as possible.
When the time came to upgrade to something else, I went to a lot of trouble to get a speaker with the same price/quality ratio. With the right source and preamp they will blow you away. You should also consider that you'll probably never need a sub having this speakers in your home theater system. If you have questions feel free to email me.
I just shipped a pair of Vandys back east via a trade for a Parasound Amp. I don't miss them at all! In my case I think that they were to big for my room and placement was a critical issue. I used to own a couple pair of Logans and their placement was not as critical as the Vandys! I have heard the Hales Rev 3 and the Stratus Golds and they are both great sounding. The Stratus has a little smoother, inviting sound, but they were played through different amps and cd players, so it would not be an accurate account. That would be a hard choice, but having owned the Vandys I would say "don't even go there". I saw a pair of Stratus Golds last week on line for $750!!! Of course when I contacted the seller they were gone! Both speakers, Stratus and Hales, have had nothing but good reviews, so either one would probably be a good choice, especially with your Classe'!
