Demo suggestions

I have Ruark Prelude R mains at the mo and love them but they are a right pain with little kids running about and seeing as that is going to be happening for the next few years, I have decided to move to bookshelfs.

Budget is around £1000 and I'm looking at Ruark Sabre 3 as my first stop. Now, style is very important as we live in a barn conversion so nothing silver or flash in any way. Anything else I should ask to demo?

Try the Totem Model 1, or others in the range. Very natural sound
