As noted in another thread I am in the process of putting some speakers in my living room for tv watching and music listening. I'm battling with my wife on appearance vs performance. She would like something very small so it is not noticeable. I think that VA's are a nice compromise. The wood finish is brilliant and they sound great from when I heard them some years ago.
I'd like to get my hands on some used Bachs, Mozarts or Haydns. They will be in my living room so I'd like them to be in pretty good shape. I have to live on a budget though so anything close to new price is way out of my league. I live in NH. I've done the craigslist route and nothing to be had. I see a number of different ones on ebay. I'd prefer to be able to see and hear them before I pony up hundreds of dollars, or at least have a reliable return policy. Are there other places I should look or avenues I can follow to find them?
