I am looking for a pair of speakers in the range of $1,000-$1,500. I will only be using these for stereo music only, as I am now building a dedicated system for music. What is the best pair of speakers you can get for this much dough? I don't live near a major city so I'm limited by what I can audition. I have to be selective to avoid doing a lot of driving That is why I'm asking all the experts here for recommendations I have listened so far to the Mirage OMNI 260, and Martin Logans Scenarios ($2,000 speakers reduced to $1,200 for clearance). I found the imaging of the Mirage not as focused as I am used to, probably as a result of its omnipolar tweeter technology. There was a slight set up problem with the Martin Logans so I didn't get a good chance to listen to them properly. However, they didn't immediately grab my attention but I probably need to give them more listening time. Other speakers I'm considering right now are Joseph Audio RM7s (a little outside of my budget, but hey, no harm in listening to them, right?), and perhaps Paradigm. I listened mostly to vocals accompanied by orchestra (Sarah Brightman, Charlotte Church), jazz vocals (Diana Krall, Jane Monheit - so ability to reproduce jazz piano accurately and a dynamic bass are important attributes). Needless to say, natural sounding voice is of paramount importance. I also listen to some classical piano and classical orchestra. I would appreciate any recommendations you guys have and what amplification you think would make a good pairing. Thanks for any feedback you can give. Cheers.
