I was about to say "don't rule out better quality standmounters - pound for pound they give better sound (in my experience), even with seventy quid minimum thrown in for good stands."

But I think that rule only starts to apply at about the 500 quid mark. So ignore me, and add the Kef iQ5 and Tannoy Mercury F4 to your list. I haven't heard the Tannoy, but if they have the same signature as my old Revolution R2's then you should definitely hear them, as they were lovely.

Agreed, and that's where I satrted off from, but then thought that in the context of this, a pair of 9.1s on stands (same sort of price) wouldn't be better than a pair of 9.3s. I'd rather have a pair of £1k standmounters than £1k floorstanders though.
