Active reference monitors on a budget

Any suggestions for a pair of active near-field reference monitors around the $400 price point? I'm sure this question has been asked numerous times before, but I RESPECT the judgement of many board members here. I also realize, that monitor choice is a very personal issue. This is the price point where I must hover around as not to get attacked by the wife with her glue-gun! :O) Any thoughts from experience greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance. ~~~Lee

The JBL LSR25P's seem to sell for around the $400 or less mark
for a pair (used) at e-bay.

Never tried them though, so perhaps more knowledgeable gearslutz's can comment more wisely than moi.

The Tannoy Reveals can be had for around that price used, and they are pretty astounding. They have a VERY VERY clear sound. They do lack bass response, though.

Thanks Lee.
Come to think of it, there was a "Paradigm" thread a while back here
on gearslutz that you may want to look up also.

There's a set of NHT A-10s on e-bay now @ $350. A set of A-20s up too for @ $500. I have the A-10s and they are great. Worth checking out. You may want to do a Google search for other comments.
