I am planning on creating my first stereo-set up for strictly music listening. Initially the speakers will be used as is, however, when my budget permits I plan to add a dedicated sub. I plan on buying used to make the most out of my money.
My current considerations are B&W 802 Diamond (I found a pair for $5k used) and Tyler Acoustics D10 ($6.5k used), are there any other contenders you would give your consideration?

- Paradigm Signature S8v3 on Audiogon.com - 1 yr. old, $6,200
- Paradigm Studio 100v5 on Audiogon.com - 4 mo. old, $3,100
Both pairs of speakers are reported to be in mint condition.
There is a pair of Legacy Focus se up om Audiogon. I heard a demo of them a while back and liked them a lot. They appear to be like new. I have no affiliation.
Very intrigued by these speakers. The review on audioholics was pretty convincing. From the way it sounds these are pretty authoritative on the low end, so much so that a dedicated subwoofer may not be necessary, which is quite surprising to me seeing as the dual 12" woofers don't appear to be powered by an internal amplifier. Would anyone be able to point me in the direction of some frequency/SPL charts for these speakers? Details seem sparse on the newer ones with air motion tweeters.
