New or vintage? For vocal, Harbeth is almost superb for vocal but very pricey, used units barely sold below 4k. For vintage, JBL, Klipsch, Altec and the like, if  could be found, would blow many modern speakers out of the water and then some. Within the past two years I have bought Klipsch KG4 (rm1200) and JBL L110 (rm3500), both more than 30 years in age, no modern speakers in their price ranges can come close in SQ, will never sell them away!

Hi,

Synergy and room size are also very important. 

Perhaps share the rest of your equipment chain so the more experienced members here can chime in.

Bookshelves or Floorstands?

Purely based on your criteria of pricing alone, for bookshelves you can consider used speakers such as the Proac Tablette series, KEF LS50, Sonus Faber Concerto.

For floorstands maybe a pair of used Totem Hawk, B&W CDM7

Try the Proac Ref 8 or Ref 8 Signature if you can find a pair.

Hi, I sold my pristine pair of ref 8 sigs for rm4.2k maybe less than a year back. Not sure what the price level is now.

Ref 8 should be a bit cheaper.
