Seeking $15,000.00 speaker to replace Quad 988's
If you don't mind an extremely small sweat spot, take a look at Innersound Electrostats, I had Eros MK II and thought it was a great speaker, just not a feasible speaker for more than one person.Good Luck

Best used speaker for $2,000 for rock music
Source Technology has a new speaker - 8.3DX - that should fit your needs --- if there is no dealer in your area, you can purchase a new pair direct in your used price range.I own the 8.2DX and 90% of the music I listen to is Classic Rock and these... 
Green Mtn Europa vs. Von Schweikert VR1
There is a gentleman on Audioasylum that talked about owning a pair of the Europa's before switching to Source Technology 1.5wv -- he said the Source's were better in every way --- they cost half as much as the Europa's when purchased direct from ...

What sub do "U" use ?
I think the best value subs are those from HSU Research --- the Audio Critic said the VTF-2 was the best sub he's ever measured. I bought one and think its excellent, but only used it for movies not music. 
Von Schweikert VR-4,Jr.

How do you get to listen to high end speakers?
Let's see, you've spent $4000 at this store and they wouldn't let you listen to a pair of overpriced speakers for a few minutes? According to them the speakers were available to audition to potential buyers "only" How do they know what kind of mon...

Your ''best kept secret'' speaker choice ?
I would look at Source Technologies, the owner/designer John Sollecito was the "J" in JSE Engineering in the 80's, and he also developed the highly reviewed "Harmonic Recovery System" He's been building speakers for a solid 15 years - all price ra... 
Aerial 7B vs. Thiel 2.4
As to the above comment: I listened to the Thiels at a local high-end shop - I can't remember the associated equipment, but I have to believe the associated equipment would have been such that they were designed to put the Thiels in a good light. ... 
Aerial 7B vs. Thiel 2.4
I've heard the 7b and I believe the 2.4 and personally I would go with the Aerials. I found the Thiel's I listened to to be a bit too bright for my taste.
