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.
Just fyi...I like the Pulsars so much that I have committed to a new pair of Perspectives. They should be in hand next week.

I traded the Pulsars back to my dealer, so if anyone wants to know where to get a gently used pair, let me know.
LOL! Congrats on the upgrade! The Perspectives are a lot of fun.

I'm still trying to figure out a way to afford the Pearl 2s. Not having much luck so far. ;-)
