Sound Dynamics 300ti speakers are nice, but, no longer in production.

This set seems expensive considering the condition, but, it's under your budget and would give you some money to put towards stands or a subwoofer:

Here's a little info on them:

My friend, Ernest, uses them and is happy.

Does the woman being cute make up for her frying your speakers?

I know where you can get the Infinity Primus P362 for $375/pair and the Infinity PS212 12" 400 Watt subwoofer is $300 Buy It Now on ebay. I doubt you could find a better sounding setup for $790 delivered.

Here is a review of the P362 predecessor: http://www.stereophile.com/budgetcomponents/605infinity/
If Bob Reina thinks the Infinity Primus 150s sound like $1000/pair speakers then the 360s sound like...?

In addition, Brett Johnson in his Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity review said, "The Primus 360s held their own in the stereo mode as full-range transducers, only struggling with the very lowest frequencies of the two-channel version of "Entre Amigos", a wonderful David Chesky recording featuring Rosa Pasoa and Bassist Ron Carter, with classic Latin acoustic accompaniment.

With the PS-12 sub in the system, the 360s were at ease with a wide variety of program material. With stereo, they were dynamic and precise, and the 360 is a capable stand-alone speaker."

You may want to consider NHT 2.9 They're pretty good for the price. There's a pair right now available on Audiogon
They usually go for around 800, I think this one is 900 because it's white, rather than the usual black.
