Does Cossyman only recommends the same 2 brands everytime????
OP, there are so many speakers in the $2k range that are very good. And what works for one doesn't for another. I'd suggest auditioning whatever you can, and see about the 30 day trials on ID brands.
Salk, philharmonic, ascend, aperion, dynaudio, monitor audio, dali, focal, totem, paradigm, PSB, revel, amphion, etc, all have towers in that price range that are very good. So audition what you can. Decide for yourself.
