stand-mount speakers for classical music

Last year's search for stand-mount speakers got scuttled by other priorities. I used the time since to optimize existing config and critically evaluate all the thingz.

> 90% of my listening is classical up to moderate dB, remaining 10% is mix of electronic, alternative and classic rock up to loud dB ( >= 12 o'clock on -dB dial).

Classical breakdown: 70% chamber/solo instrumental and vocal, 30% orchestral and opera.

Gear: Micromega M-100 int amp, Nola Boxer v1, dual Syzygy SLF870 12" 1000w subs w/ room-correction, all source material is streaming (.flac or Qobuz)

Room: challenged 3700cf L-shape with speakers centered at 7' point of a 27' head wall. Vaulted ceiling to 13', hardwood floors, some rugs.

Budget: under $5K

Grateful to hear from other standmount owners with similar listening profiles.
Update on the search for standmounts for classical music - short-list shortened in order of fit^:

  1. Philharmonic BMR Monitors (built by Salk Sound)
  2. Fritz Carbon 7 SE MK II
  3. Stirling Broadcast BBC LS3/6*
  4. ATC SCM20pSL*
^  fit = value/price ratio + spec match to my parameters (see OP) + accessibility of designer/builder

*  >= $5K new; pre-own hard to find and multiple K more $$ than 1, 2 

Anyone out there heard or even better own Philharmonic BMR's?


A pair of Fritz LS/7R's were just posted today on Audiocircle for $2200.  It was a $3800 model when new. 
@jackd - thanks, saw those earlier.  For my spec the BMR's seem hard to beat: true 3-way, driver quality, exceptional midrange, designed by classical musician etc.  
What's Jim's lead time on the BMR's after being shut down for a while with orders already stacked up in the que? It's rare to see either his or Dennis's version show up used.
