Look for local, you can usually get better deals that way, with cash n' carry. That way you get to listen to them first too, and most sellers don't want to worry about shipping big speakers. I got a great deal on the pair of Soliloquy 6.3i's I'm using now that way.
If I was in the market today, I'd snap these Audio Physics Virgo II's up.
In my opinion, the Dunlavy speakers remain the greatest bargain in all of high-end audio. At your price point you could potentially find a set of SC-IVs, which are world class full range speakers which compete with current designs in the 20K range. I have almost every model that John Dunlavy ever designed mixed into 2 channel and home theatre systems. They are not there for novelty. They are there because I have auditioned just about every high-end speaker made and find that Dunlavys are unbeatable for the money.
Best damn stand mount three way monitor speaker on the market under $ 2000.00...The Polk LSi M703. I owned the previous version with the Vifa ring radiator tweeter and the new driver's are far superior. The sound is silky smooth. Incredible detail. Very powerful bass. Play down to 36hz and roll off around 30hz. Work very well for home theater or music. Do an outstanding job on Classical music and all other music forms. The cabinet quality is first rate and the drivers are outstanding in house designs. $1500.00 a pair factory direct.
Weigh 30 pounds each.
If I were auditioning speakers right now, I would certainly give the new Ultras by SVS a listen. Free in home trial for 45 days and free shipping both ways. Really don't have anything to lose.
And, if you don't have a sub yet, pick one up while you are at it.
Aside from being a satisfied customer, I have no affiliation with the company.
