I am using the same set for the last many years....My current pair of speakers is a pair of circle arko 80 which are effectively microlab solo 5c which I got for 3.5k from this deal thread here . That's the bang for buck standard for me.
Actually, I might in a couple of months... if I manage to convince myself to get an amp+passive speakers that is :D That'd be too late. :P Looks like I'll have to settle for the Audioengine 2 but bajaao is no longer stocking them. Perhaps some other dealer. Will do some research.techenclave.com
