I know that I need to audition speakers to make my own decision. But I need some good suggestions to get started. And frankly, I don't have a lot of time to go auditioning speakers, so I need to narrow the field down to two or three choices based on word of mouth. I live in Toronto area, my absolute ceiling in $1000 Cdn, and they will be used with a Yamaha RX-V1000, on the B setting of the "A-B" switch. I don't need reference level speakers, but I do want floorstanding (no bookshelves). It would be nice, but not necessary, for them to belong to a full HT setup later on. But right now, the focus is solely music. Recommend away! Thanks, Martin.
