I know I'm opening Pandora's box with this post because everyone has an opinion, but I'm in the market for some new speakers and I believe this is a good forum for advice. \n\nImportant details: \n\nI currently own Focal Solo 6 Be's for music listening and I really like them because of how clean the mids and highs are, but they are nearfield monitors and don't have the soundstage, bass, or room-filling sound that I want\nMy main focus is music, but I want something that would also work well for movies\nI listen mostly to ballads, pop, choral, and orchestral music (virutally no rap, metal, rock, or techno) and value very clean mids and highs, but having clean bass is important\nI've heard Dynaudio Special 40s and was blown away by the soundstage, but found them to be a bit warm (at least compared to my very bright Focals)\nI'm looking for a 2-channel or 2.1 channel setup (quality is more important to me than the number of speakers)\nMy budget is $5,000\n\nI've gone back and forth between a few scenarios: \n\nSave money by keeping the Focals and just add an SVS SB-3000 or REL T\/7i subwoofer to get extended bass\nBuy a set of passive bookshelf speakers and then start the journey of finding the right DACs\/Amps\/etc. to make them sing \n\nRBH Audio, Kef, and ELAC are a few speaker brands that come to mind. \n\nBuy a set of active speakers that are ready to go\n\nBuchardt A500s and A700s (soon to be launched floorstander version) have caught my eye because they are beautiful speakers, the reviews are very good, and they can be purchased as a fully contained system with DSP, room correction, a source, etc. (https:\/\/www.buchardtaudio.com\/products\/a500-walnut-bundle)\n\n\nOpinions?
