What's the sitting distance?

Also, what kind of sonic signature are you looking for? Warm? Neutral? A bit on the brighter side?

Those speakers look kind of cool. Tannoy is a UK brand so their sound signature is the "80s" sound, where you get a boost in the upper bass and the upper treble. Here's what their Fusion looks like ($540/pr):

You can look here:

http://www.soundstageav.com/speakermeasurements.html

and also look up stereophile and hometheaterhifi. They have many reviews on speaker measurements and you should review them to see which ones you may like. Polk Audio is said to have warm sound, the Lsi7 should fall roughly within your price range:

I'd look used for a pair of GR Research Neo 1x or 2x IMO.

Or, depending on what amp you have a good pair of single driver speakers with a front port.

The GR Research Neo 1x and 2x look very promising, the diy kits are in my price range.
I do have the tools to pull of a cabinet also. I think these are the highest on my list now.
Is there any other sites for used audio gear that i should look at?
