Couldn't face real hi-fi shop prices, so the upper end of Richer Sounds it was: a pair of TDL Studio 10s and a pair of Mordaunt Short 914s. Ordinarily I would have shied away from the TDLs but they're reduced from £400 so I wanted to try them both in case I was missing a trick. The 914s are actually a light wood finish and the shop demo ones as they didn't have any in stock; I'll return/swap them for new black ones when I decide.
Anyway, they're sitting at home waiting for me to play with them this evening with kissycat1000.
Feeling a bit run down.
