Considering Towers in the $3000 range

I am strongly considering a purchase. I am considering the following in no particular order in a large room with high ceilings which I would be driving with a Cary Audio SL-100:

Wharfedale EVO 4.4

Dali Oberon 9

ELAC Carina FS247.4

Monitor Audio Silver 500 7G


Looking for opinion based on experience. My listening preferences are eclectic.

Thanks in advance for responses.



I have the Tekton Double Impact SE and the Vandersteen 2CE Sig II. Both these speakers are recommended here but offer a different presentation. Vandy's are more laid back. The Tektons have more bass and deeper and more upfront sound. They would match very well with your amp. 

Depending on your room's cubic footage, either the Ohm Walsh 1000 or 2000.  I have had my 2000s since 2009, and the honeymoon is still going strong.


It took me about 7 months before I was able to hear a pair of those and the the One R’s. My dealer couldn’t get them and when he got some they were sold and delivered to the buyers.
