This is true: I bought RS-1s because I couldn't afford a decent set of speakers. Grados, I thought, were the closest thing to matching them (in terms of raw musical energy). But now I have a bulge in my wallet that needs de-bulging. I'm looking for some kind of 2 channel set-up with a sound-signature similar to RS-1s', if such a thing even exists, for around $1500.
Problem is: I don't know speakers. Don't know whether I want floor-standers or bookshelf units. Have no idea which brands to shy away from; which are worth looking into. And that's why, dear speaker-gods of Head-Fi, I humbly ask for your assistance. Any chance you might be willing to point me in some helpful direction?
