My flair has my desktop setup. The Aperion Intimus 4B goes for around $270 these days (the 5B are $399). I personally think they are a fantastic little speaker and they bunch waaaay above their weightclass IMHO


I’d also add the MartinLogan 35xt. They retail for about $1200 but can be had on amazon for around $600. I heard them at AXPONA last weekend and they were one of the big suprises of the show for me.

You’re welcome. I think bookshelves on stands look better anyways, less bulky. A single Sierra 2 Center (bottom of list) is $740. The Horizon center is an extra $350 for the RAAL tweeter.

I wonder what the Martin Logan Motion 35XT or on Amazon with the folded motion tweeters are like for $1k a pair. The smaller LX16 are on sale for $500 a pair.

Or Emotive Airmotive T1 towers for $1k a pair.

Monoprice even has AMT tweeters in their Monoliths.

Thanks for replying! I think it makes more sense now.

However, what is a B stock? Is it like refurb from ascend?

Which of the following do you think is the best? (I generally like a bassy sound, but since its for a home theater, I will already have 2 subs, so as you and @Skitch_n_Sketch mentioned, I don’t need a towers when I could get a better high and mid end bookshelves for cheaper price)

Ascend Sierra pair B stock for $1,158.40http://www.ascendacoustics.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=AD&Product_Code=9SRM2PPBS0

Matin Logan motion 40 towers pair Refurb for ~$1,400 http://www.ebay.com/itm/REFURBISHED-Martin-Logan-Motion-40-Speaker-gloss-piano-black-MOTION40-EACH/272322034066
Also would you trust this ebay “Authorized dealer” and its “Authorized dealer Warranty” and its “Refurb product”?

Martin Logan motion 35xt Bookshelf speaker pair for ~$1000 http://https://www.amazon.com/MartinLogan-Motion-35XT-Bookshelf-Speaker/dp/B00MHOJAIA
Again would you trust this amazon link?

HSU CCB-8 Bookshelf Speaker pair for ~ $700http://http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/ccb-8.html

• On the side line, what do you think about B&W 685 Bookshelf speakers http://www.bowers-wilkins.com/Speakers/Home_Audio/600_Series/685.html and PSA MTM-210 Bookshelfs https://www.powersoundaudio.com/collections/speakers/products/mtm-210 How do these two compare with the rest above?

Out of all the speakers above, What would be your top 2 ranked speakers?
