Help! Spakers damaged during shipping?Paid insurance (with proof)being told not Insured?
Well - this puts me off Audiogon for sure.  
Speaker recommendation $1000 or less you've had in your home
+++ on the DCMs.  I lucked out and scored a pair @ $200 all in.  They need some room.  They were good enough for Bryston to use them in demos at shows back in the early 90s. 
Phono pre amp
