Joseph Audio Pulsar?

I'm in the market for the best possible reproduction (within the budget, obviously) from 70 Hz and up. Budget is as much as $6000, although $5K would be more comfortable. I recently heard a pair of the Pulsars and was thoroughly impressed. Retail price is out of range and used pairs don't seem to come up for sale. So, I would welcome any and all opinions from those who 1) auditioned the Pulsars, AND 2) have a slightly less expensive alternative. The only caveat is that I must be able to listen before buying (say, within 200 miles of the audio wasteland known as Houston), or alternatively, have an offer of in home trial. The speakers will be driven by my tube amp (VAC Phi Beta 110i). Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
The Pulsar is pretty new, so I wouldn't expect any used yet. Besides, they're a very good speaker.

Have you thought about a Dynaudio C1? There are three on Audiogon right now.

I have considered the Dynaudios. They were on my short list to audition. However, a Joseph Audio dealer saw this post and has offered his demos on a trial basis. I've taken him up on it. Thanks for the reply.

That's good to hear! I remember hearing the Joseph Audio Pearls at a dealer in Chicago and couldn't believe how good they were paired with the Thor preamp and amp.

I heard the Pulsar in Detroit, and wasn't impressed, but I attributed it to the other components, not the Pulsars.

Good luck!
I heard the Pulsar and was thoroughly unimpressed. The Dynaudio Confidence c1s totally blow them away.
