As I said, feel free to slam me for asking dumb stuff.


In the market for a good set of L & R floor standing speakers ($3000).

Aperion Verus Grand is getting some really good reviews. B&W CM9, 683 & Definitive BP 8080ST audition well..Paradigm and Monitor is on my audition list.


BUT, to be really honest, I am hoping to find something that sounds good, looks good and more importantly, is BIG\\TALL\\MASSIVE - BIGGER FOOTPRINT which is counter to what most people want today ;-


I have an open floor plan and it would be great to have some massive looking speakers.

Ex: Dynaudio Confidence or Evidence types.


Those are from a different planet and way out of my league, but hope it's ok to "want" similar looking big speakers at my price point.


All the speakers I have reviewed so far are max 4ft tall .


Do i continue to dream
?


Thanks!!

Nor are they contemporary looking.

They are over 4' tall if he converts them into JubeScalas with the large K402 horn.


Then again, they might fail the asthetics test.... unless he loves horns, then maybe they'll fly through the asthetics test with flying colors.

Those look like they're made by a company that makes copy machines

Thx for your responses guys.


- Honestly speaking, the La Scalas don't quite fit-in. It's a little too short and also not that great looking. Sorry


- Philharmonic audio seems to be at the price point, so will review.

- Jamos R909 look quite slick , but way beyond price point.

- See some good stuff on Audiogon too.


Will keep looking.


Anyone know of online dealers for Focals?

At $3k I would take a look at Klipsch RF7 and Paradigm Studio 100.

Prices for the new Infinity Preludes have come down quite a bit in the past few months. They have the same flat panel mid range drivers as in the Cascades that I have. They are very good.

Infinity Prelude. They are 'only' 5'3" high though.


Or a pair of Revel Salon2's if you have the $s.
