The LS3/5a's I bought circa 1975-1976, adjusted for inflation, come out to about the same price - mid-$2000's. But those Rogers speakers gave me anxiety, especially given that my loaner pair had a blown woofer. This new Totem reads like a bargain.

Try the Watkins Gen 4
Same tweeter but with a dampener that really makes the hi freq smooth
$1995 for the pair.Made in U.S.A
I have been running a pair for a month now and couldn't be happier
