I tried every bookshelf speaker under £1000 at richer sounds and non of them pushed my buttons. DALI Oberon was the most natural but the bass was too boomy. I was about to walk out but decided to go a level up and found the best speaker I'd ever heard; A Dali Rubicon 2. I'd never heard vocals like it, the bass was tight and fast. They were too powerful for my room so RS recommended the Dali Menuet range. They are perfect for the room they're in, the bass port is designed in a way that they're better positioned close to the wall. Give them a go. You'll need a bit more than 500 euros though.
