Anyway, it would be helpful to get impressions of $3,000 - $10,000 speakers from those who have auditioned enough to have a basis for comparison.
In particular, the Paradigm Signature S8, Paradigm Studio 100, or B&W Cm9?
Depending on your taste, room, and electronics you have an almost endless list of great speakers in the sub (used) $10K market.

Offerings from Quad, Avalon, Totem and on and on and on. All different and to many the end of the road.
I still think the Jamo R907s are worth auditioning. Maybe even the R909, I just checked the price and it is way lower than it used to be (around 7K new). Makes me really said about having paid what I have here in my country...
They are truly exceptional speakers, capable of portraying a remarkably large soundstage because they are dipolars. And, since they're dynamic speakers, bass is tight, visceral and present. Obviously they don't do detail as well as their electrostatic siblings, but they do offer a fantastic tone and, for the price they're being offered now, it's an incredible deal.
Vapor Audio Cirrus monitors. Just absolutely incredible for $3500. Giant killers. Jeff Joseph's Pulsar is twice as much at $7K/pr, but definitely worth a listen. I've got a thing for stand-mount two-ways. All but the very best tower speakers really struggle to disappear into the music, a trick that a $1,000 two-way monitor can pull off with ease.
