Best Bookshelf speakers you can find for about $500 used?

Best Bookself speakers you can find for near $500 used?

I am hoping for at least reasonably efficient speakers, with high quality finish.

So far I am considering Monitor Audio GR10.

Others I have considered are klipsch sb-3 and polk rt-55i but these would both be in the 200 range.

Can anyone think of anything better? I am definitely a fan of large bookshelves.

Please let me know. I think this could be a useful thread for many to reference when shopping for bookshelves because you can find great used deals and often those who want bookshelves also care about appearance and quality.

B&W 685/686 if you can find them for the price you want to pay. 686 are the smaller in spite of what their model number might say

I think they are possibly better for music than movies due to their low sensitivity. It's ok for me because I don't listen at high volumes and have an external amp.

Not saying it's the best option because I think speakers are subjective. Just throwing it out as an option
