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?

wtf was I thinking? My room size was embarrassingly wrong, by an order of magnitude : |

I got 2500 cu ft (not ~5000 cu ft), with 10’4" opening to another 1240 cu ft room. Ceilings are 11 - 14’ vaulted.

With that ’revelation’, I also found the Reference 3A MM de Capo BE.
Dynaudio S40 owner.. great speakers that Dynaudio could have sold for at least a grand more.. Maybe that's the anniversary gift? a $5k speaker for $3k  LoL 

I'd just buy a new pair in red; amazing especially if your wife like Rosewood the red will really be a winner! 
2 more to consider:

Ryan s610's:  I heard these at a show last spring.  It was one of the very few rooms that made me smile while listening.  It's a bit bigger standmount at 17-inches tall, goes down to 42hz.  Beryllium tweeters. $3995 and made in the US.  Getting good reviews.

Bryston Mini-T's:  A larger, 3-way monitor.  I own these, and have them on 16 inch stands.  8-inch drivers - no need for a sub.  My room is 30x15 and these fill it with ease.  Very happy with them.  About $3-4k new.
Ryan S610 ... Bryston Mini-T

vero: thanks, I've added Ryan s610 to my list - spec and build are attractive for my setup.

I do appreciate a larger-box monitor, esp. 3-way.  I already have dual subs so value of the larger drivers might be lost for my application.
