A used pair of Vandersteen 2CE often can be found at good prices. I love this speaker and it is often described as very musical. I listened to more than a few, two years ago. Settled on a new pair of 2CE Sig II. Mr. Vandersteen set out early in the design of the speaker to include less wood for aesthetics, thus reducing the price and allowing for more effort into better sound instead.
I picked up a pair of 2CE's w/ shot filled stands "and" nifty vinyl covers for them when they're not in use, for $200 off of Craigslist.I like them so much I went out and bought a pair of 3A's. Though they are not so easy to move. But if your patient you can find them for a great price.
Good advice, appreciate it.I have only heard the OB7 speakers from GR. I am betting the room did not help them, they sounded too tipped up for me there. I have not heard the XLS, but I fear the rear port would hamper placement for me.I will continue to wait for the moment, nothing compelling has come up yet to tempt me at, or even slightly above the budget.I'll let the fund brew, and I check the local classifieds daily, so I am sure in the coming 6 months something will tempt me.Of what is around, the original PSB Stratus Mini's are the most interesting for $400.I would love to try on a set of those cheapie Pioneers, but none are available anywhere near the price's y'all are seeing in the US...
