swan D2.1se+ $549
Aperion Grand Verus Bookshelf $629 open box or $699 new
NHT Classic Two's $529
KEF Q300 $469
Does anyone have any further thoughts about these options to help me narrow it down? I haven't heard anyone mention the Aperions, but have read good reviews.
Out of those I would go for the Swans. There's an older review floating around somewhere where the Swans were in a test with NHT Classic 3s, Ascend Acoustics Sierras and some others (I think). From what I remember the Swans were preferred by the most.
They're more in the $1000-$1200 price range in sound and looks. So at $549 they're a steal IMO.
