I have a set of floor-standing a/d/s M12 Monitor speakers. Not practical for everyone but I really like them. Dual 8" woofers, 5" midrange and a dome tweeter. The tricky part is that the midrange is above the tweeter in a separate wooden section than the woofers to keep them from interacting

I see them for $400-500 on forums, looks like a cosmetically damaged set went on ebay for $350 recently:

Those look interesting.  I’ve never run across them before.

I'm using Mackie CR5BT speakers.  Small, clean and fairly accurate sound, and cheap.  1/4", RCA, 1/8", and Bluetooth input.

I got them used, as recommended by an audiophile friend who had a lot of experience comparing fancy speakers. He said they were a good value. I may have paid $800 for the pair in 1996? Don't recall exactly but they were MSRP $2000/pair new.
I really like them, and if you want to bi-wire, or bi-amplify, they have the terminals.
(note that these are old-school "passive speakers" so you'll need amplification!!!)

I took the plunge and upgraded the DAW to a pair of Dynaudio LYD 48s

Finally pulled the trigger and bought a pair of Neumann KH120s to replace my JBLs.  Anticipating a cathartic experience.  We’ll see. ;D
