Default Vienna Acoustics - Mozart

Anyone have any experience with these? I listened to some over the weekend and I was very impressed.

I'm ready to upgrade my main speakers and I'm in the process of listening to as many speakers that I can find. My price range is $2,000 to $3,000. I'd prefer (obviously) to stay towards the $2,000 end of the spectrum but I'll go to $3,000 for the right speaker (and so far the Vienna Acoustics - Mozarts appear to be just that).

So if anyone else has any suggestions for speakers in that range please let me know. I'll be going to listen to some B&W's weekend after next (got other plans this weekend).

Thanks in advance

Sorry - I also meant to mention that I've listened to:

Marting Logan - 8" (not my favorite but very nice if you have a dedicated listening room where you can sit right in the sweet spot

Definitive Mythos - Didn't like at all

Keff XQ40 - Pretty nice but seemed a little hollow to me. Nice soundstage but definitely needs a sub for my music tastes.

Keff XQ30 - Surprisingly good for the price. If I were to go with Keff I'd be likely to buy these over the XQ40s but I'm thinking the 40's that I listed to weren't broken in yet...

B&W 703/704 - Going to listen to these soon.

Smile Great Speakers!

I have had my Mozarts for several years now.

I have them in my 5.1 system. All speakers in the setup are Mozarts, my wife's demand. I am using a REL subwoffer.

Great for music and movies. Very low distortion so you can listen for a long time.

I would not recommend them for rock music, rock sounds better on a speaker that is more harsh, i.e. midrange overdrive.

Default VA Mozarts

I have owned these for about 3 years. They are wonderful speakers for a smaller room (mine are in room that is about 16 ft x 12 ft) and I agree that they are not ideal for rock music (though that is what I often listen too and still enjoy on them). They are accurate and can sound subdued, but for jazz and classical they are perfect for the money.

Listen to the Paradigm Reference Studio 60s before you buy. I chose between the exact speakers you were considering and these. Preferred the highs on the Viennas and the mids on the Paradigms - concluded they were more versatile.

That said, you can't go wrong with what you're considering.
