Hey guys I am looking for a pair of floor standing speakers. They will be used for music only. And as far as music type, I listen to everything besides country music.
Size doesn't really matter. My budget it 1000 max. Audiogon any other used sites are okay. I live in PA and there are not a lot of high end dealers in the area for me to find a set used or anything. What do you guys recommend?

Is that seller reputable I never used that site? I have been looking at the focal 714 used for 699 or the 716 for 899 used so this would be a good price.

Define "Cheap" ...what are your criteria.. No sub so you want a good amount of bass?

I did define "Cheap" 1k to spend.
And I do have a sub if needed, but it will not always be used.

So 1,000 to spend only on the front two speakers right? Don't need speaker wire, reciever, speaker stands, players etc...we are talking 1k for front two speakers? Just clarifying because there are allot in the 1k budget range but your choices become more limited at the 800 range...and severely limited in the 600 range.

Yes only the speakers. The 1k is speakers strictly. Anything else that I do not have will be purchased separately. I have been doing research on the focals originally suggested and I am leaning towards them. I was considering the Swan Diva 6.2 speakers but now I am more into the focal.
