Speaker misquote causes huge problem

I have been looking at new speakers for a simple 3.1 setup. I tend to listen to music with head phones so this system is going to be mainly HT. I was looking at spending $1000 to $1500 on speakers (i have a sub)

I went to audition the Dali Zensor line which I liked a lot but then I heard the Chario Constellation series which blew me away. The price difference was a small stretch until I tried to pay for them....
"So... yeah I gave you the wrong pricing" (uh oh) He gave me pricing for the Chario Syntar line which is a lower line. They are still awesome but not as much so and now the difference in quality between the dali is minimal.

The question: Given that my first choice is well out of my price range and buying the same setup in the syntar line would be like starring at Honda civic with a body kit pretending it's a Porsche. I like the Dali's but know I am in position to ask what could I listen to in that same price range that would be a good gut check to the Dali's?

P.S. my wallet says buy the Dali's but my heart tells me to mortgage the house

Unless your heart can control your mind easily, I'd imagine that you'd always want the ones you wanted to choose, and not the ones you should have chosen.

Sometimes our circuits get shorted by external interference,
Signals get crossed and the balance distorted by internal incoherence.
