    May I recommend the b&w 607s2 or 606s2 .if you get a discount they will be in your budget.absolutely delightful is the 607 s2. Nice finish , very natural sound.been really enjoying them past few days . I could easily live with these , they may be vinyl wrap but they are great value .Diana it all was sounding very captivating. They are detailed but not fatiguing. I can imagine the 606 s2 is even better

    If you want floorstanders audio emotion have a number of open box Dali floorstanders .if you look on the wam there is a nice pair of b&w cm7 for 350 . A lot of speaker for the money

    seems he will not pack up , sad . Not too sure about the Acoustic energy but i do know the B&W speakers are well known and personally i rather like them

    in your budget though i dont think you can beat the dali ikons !! at 490 seems a good deal . audio emotion have a superb rep
