Quad ESL 57 is the only loudspeaker to challenge and actually match/beat the Beveridge in the midrange - and yes, it falls short in the areas you described so well. I would try to match it with NON BOX subwoofer - dipole of some sort.  Depending on size of your room ( and piggybank... ) that can range from some small DIY job up to Carver Amazing Loudspeaker - used as subwoofer only... Gradient of Norway Finland ( used to ? ) produce dipole SWs intended specifcally for the...

Here one more intersting to the prospective non USA based customers - shipping IS a fly in the ointment: http://www.hifiwigwam.com/showthread.php?66453-Vinyl-Flat-vinyl-dewarper   
Now a topic every vinyl user will be interested in:    WARPS   There is a well made Furutech record flattener - at a cool $ 2,000.00 or so.

Usually driven by SET amplification - match made in heaven. But, I agree - it is a sin to rip apart anything this good and this old !
Now I finally get to know what gets canibalized for those divine sounding broadband Saba speakers - they are very popular in DIY loudspeaker community over here,  particularly open baffle designs ...
One of the good ol' uncompressed LPs - later Barbras tend to be flat and squashed in comparison to this one :   http://www.discogs.com/Barbra-Streisand-Memories/release/1611255   http://www.discogs.com/viewimages?release=1611255
Just downloaded first three samples - for the fourth, I would have to create an acount with Google. Also just installed ABX comparator in foobar 2000.  I have to learn to use the ABX comparator properly for blind testing etc ( ANYTHING but computer geek myself ) - but the first thing that comes to mind is that one track sounds mellow and the other sharp - depending how you queue them in test. They also differ in appearent loudness - the sharper is a bit louder than the...
