Hello HomeTheaterForum! Need some advice. I am looking for a pair of quality bookshelf style speakers primarily for music (but eventually build a HT system around them) for around $400 for the pair. I posted in the avsforum but all the talk about the swan diva line turned me off. I am sure those speakers are great but the looks won't work for me and the wife, they are just too busy. some of the members there went as far as to tell me that I am crazy for not liking the looks... jeez! I need something more conventional looking, bordering on classic looking. My dilemma is this, the only nearby retailer is Circuit City and everything I heard there is garbage! I drove for about 45 minutes to a best buy and still garbage. The only "real" audio dealers are quite a distance away and after calling a few, they would let me audition in my home but would charge a restocking fee if I wished to return them. I can't accept that as I know that the dealer would just repack the speakers and sell for full retail at a later date. I need some quality speakers and I need them soon. I prefer a speaker that is revealing with great imaging. Deep bass is not a priority at this time and after all I have read, i could always add a sub. Your expert advice is appreciated.
