Hi. I see a set of hivi 2.2a's for sale right now prebuilt and it got me thinking. I've been planning on upgrading my speakers for a bit now. I have nht classic 2s and was originally planning on Sierra 1s, but then got the idea to look for focus 160s cause I seen a good deal. But since that deal is gone maybe I'll look for a middle ground in DIY speakers that can hold me over until another deal on focus 160s comes up?

Anyways long story. So what I was wondering is if there are other bookshelf speakers around the size of the Sierra 1s - 14" tall, like the hivi 2.2a and the Dayton audio br-1. Are there others to look at? Are the hivi the clear winners out of those 2? Do you think they compete with the sierras, not beat them, but in the same ballparkish? I just dont like the idea of buying the sierras and most likely wanting the nrt tweeters as well.

Up to $500

Thanks!
