I want to upgrade my front soundstage (L/C/R). My budget is about $2000 but can probably be flexed somewhat if a purchase is worth the money ($ in Canadian). Criteria: must be bookshelves. Possibilities I have already considered: Paradigm Studio 40s ($1349) and CC470 ($675) Dynaudio Audience 42 ($1150) and 42C ($725) or Dynaudio Audience 52 ($1500) and 42C ($725) or (really streching) Dynaudio Audience 52SE ($2000) and 42C ($725) B&W DM602S3 ($900) and LCR60 ($525) or LCR600 ($750) and I've also considered the following, but haven't had a chance to audition it (yet). These prices are for factory seconds, and I have no idea why A-stock of these cost so much...the comparable Paradigm models are priced at half the A-stock price (or at the B-stock price almost) Energy Veritas 2.2i ($1400) and 2.0Ci ($600) Also, Totem. At BBR. Not really too excited about that (the BBR part), and they aren't setup in a demo room...they're setup along the wall 15ft from the entranceway of the store. Nevertheless, 'm still considering them, even without a proper audition (BBR has some sort of return policy I think...). Now, I want these speakers to last a long time, so I'd like suggestions of other speakers I should consider. I have to be able to audition them somewhere in Toronto. I've heard about Vienna Acoustics, Joseph Audio, etc etc, but in my wanderings around the city, I can't find any of these (and other dare I say "exotic", at least to me) brands. I want to make the best informed decision possible, so any help in finding hidden jewels in Toronto (GTA, not necessarily Metro) would be much appreciated.
