i usually perfer soft-domed, but at this point am willing to investigate anything. any brands anyone can steer me to? i've heard Theils put out an impressive soundstage w/ great imaging, but haven't had a chance to hear them yet. do such speakers exist in this price range? have you ever heard speakers where , none of the instruments you could pick out seemed to actually be coming from the speak itself. maybe a few inches or feet to the left or right, but not exactly 'from' the speaker. or is this not usually the way most music is supposed to sound? is most pop/rock/jazz/etc mixed so that certain instrument are supposed to image right at the source of the speaker. forgive me if these are silly questions all my listening has been done mostly in the car.i've never owned any quality components for use in home (or the car for that matter), so i don't really know what to listen/look for.
