Are you looking for something like the Adcom GFS-3? They don't make that model any more, but you can find them on eBay, usually for around $20-40. You might also try your local Craigslist.

By most accounts, the NHT Classic Fours are good speakers, and $900 seems to be a good price for a pair of them.
