With the powered woofers having to be plugged in, they are becoming logistically difficult to deal with, though they are the best speaker I've ever owned, and the best I've heard under 3K. I don't expect to be blown away by whatever my next speaker set-up is in comparison to the 25's, but hopefully, any recommendations will be in the upgrade stage, rather than lateral. First, let me tell you what I preferred the 25's to: The Paradigm Studio 100, the B&W 9nt, and the PSB Gold i. I really want Martin Logans, but the girlfriend can't stand their looks . I've got my eye on the Monitor Audio GR 60's and maybe Dynaudio Contours. Throw some recommendations out there, friends, in the $2500-3500K range. Much obliged. Oops, I better mention my gear: Integra DTC-9.4 pre/pro EAD Powermaster 1000 Denon 2900 DH LABS Q-10 speaker wire Homegrown Audio Silver Lace IC's Thanks for any help!
