Standmount speakers. I have $5000.

I'm shopping standmount speakers. I have $5000.  New or pre-owned is fine.


Micromega M100 integrated pre/amp/dac
Syzygy SLF870 sub x2 (12" drivers, 1200w ea, 20-200Hz, room correction)
Dynaudio Stand 4

room = ~5000 cu. ft, 20'x 18' with 13'-17' vaulted ceiling

The new standmounts will replace Nola Boxers v1 ($1500 new in 2013)

I'm lazy about travel to audition anything but might for local options (esp. to vet pre-owned). I'd probly deal with in-home trial.

As semi-arbitrary starting point I'm looking at Salk SS 7M's ($4995 new). Any others I simply must consider?

op needs to make clear if he wants to haev his standmount play fullrange or will they be highpassed?
if they are playing fullrange, do NOT go with any speaker using a 5 inch woofer. your Nola use 6.5 inch, a 5 inch like the Joseph pulsar will suck at high spl

my recommendation for the best standmount in your budget is:
Harbeth 30.2
Harbeth shl5plus anniversory
Dynaudio contour 20
805 D3
...fullrange or will they be highpassed?

mtc: thanks for the reply.  Standmounts will be full-range and I'm looking for a larger-box-monitor format.

Legacy Calibre has joined the short-list.
ATC SCM 19 at $4300. Any deficiencies in your system or recordings will be front and center.
Appreciate everyone who has weighed in with helpful feedback.  Here's the list I'm working from, in vague (and temporary) order of favorability given my spec:

Legacy Audio Calibre
Fritz Carerra Be
Tekton Impact <= outsized price/performance ratio

Salk SS 7M
Joseph Audio Pulsar ˆ
KEF Reference 1 ˆ
Focal Sopra No.1 ˆ

Verdant Bambusa MG1

Dynaudio Special 40
Dynaudio Confidence C1 Signature ˆ
Devore Fidelity Gibbon 3XL

Forget the stand mounts. Get some ZU audio Soul Supremes for $4500. You can thank me later.
