    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?

    Thanks,

    Already had AE1 and PMC on my list. Will check the others. I do fancy PMC but have had very little experience of them.

    Dynaudio Focus 110 £850, Dynaudio Focus 140 £1150. The focus range is an astonishing speaker range!!
