If You are talking about just 2 speakers, and have that budget, I would suggest that you look at the ones I am using.
I previously had the PSB Image T6 speakers for two years, and they are very good. For $1300, you can't beat them.
My current speakers ,however are only $1600, and I think they would be hard to beat for under $4000; they are incredibly good!
They are the Gallo Acoustics Classico CL-3 speakers.
The Absolute Sound did an article on them 6 months ago, and they praised them so much that I decided to get a set for a 60-day free home trial (not a thing to lose...lol...they pay shipping both ways and a full refund).
I am SO glad that I did. They are crazy good; just wonderful.
When I moved into my current place, I wanted to bring my Vandersteen 3A speakers ($5000) from my other house (which I will sell soon), but they are 16 inches wide, and that is no good here.
Well....these $1600 speakers sound as good as my Vandersteens. I have listened to speakers from 5 or 6 top manufacturers that cost from $2500 to $5000 that do not sound as good to me as either the Vandersteens or the Gallos.
