I'm currently waiting for some Salk SS 6M speakers. I know they're worth the wait.
Still, being shut inside/at home because of this virus has made me a bit stir crazy, and I decided to buy something relatively inexpensive while I waited.
What to get, what to get? I was surfing around for something cheap but not too cheap. I was about to get some Ascend 170 speakers (which I've read good things about), when a friend said, no, try the Klipsch RP-600M. Yesterday, they price dropped from $649 to $472 on Crutchfield, and I got open box and delayed shipping; brought them down to $413. They'll arrive next week and I will have something to futz with while I wait for the Salks.
So, to others — if you bought something to tide you over, what did you buy?
