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
