Re: Choosing Speakers is one of the hardest things I've done!

Count me in on the Monitor Audio side as well. Had some Silver 5i speakers a few years ago and thought they were a very detailed speaker without being harsh and excellent mids. Can't go wrong with PSB either. Unfortunately I have not heard the Emotiva's.

Re: Choosing Speakers is one of the hardest things I've done!

Hello,
As for Wharfedale, they are a storied brand whose star has somewhat faded in my estimation. While part of it is the move of manufacture to China, there are many superb speakers being built in ROC.

The Klipsch Icon WF-35's for $600 a pair fits into your budget, are quite attractive, and are obscenely efficient. The efficiency is a wonderful attribute as you really do not ever need to worry about a given AVR having enough power to drive them to reference levels.
Cheers,
JJ

Thanks! For a number of reasons, I need monitors instead of towers.

We all find what we're looking for, whether we know it or not.
