A mint pair of Klein + Hummel o300s. This is one of the most respected near/mid field monitors currently out there, considered by some to be preferable to the replacement Neumann KH310 which is almost identical in appearance and sells for $5600 at L&McQ, taxes in, without the grills.
I bought these new and have taken excellent care of them.
If you see these at all, it is in some of the very best studios, alongside or instead of the ubiquitous Yamaha NS10s sitting on the console. They are regarded as reference grade by seasoned engineers here and in Europe.
This three way has an 8" bass driver, a 3" dome mid, and a 1" dome tweeter, each driven directly by internal 150w, 65w and 65wrms class A/B amplifiers, for a total of 280 WRMS per speaker, or 435 W peak per speaker. Headroom for transients is startling--you should hear a well recorded drum set!
Tonality is very true and mid (vocal) range headroom is exceptional due mainly to the 3" dome. This differentiates these from almost all two-way speakers at this price point. Frequency response is 40Hz-20kHz ±2dB, 35-20 ±3dB only 6dB down at 30Hz. Bass is very articulate in a way you may never have heard, thanks to the sealed enclosure. The headroom in the midrange translates to effortless vocals without a trace of the quacky distortion that I hear on most speakers with voices like Dianna Krall, for example, whose voice has a ton of energy in the 1000Hz range.
If you are serious about your sound, quality monitors are the single most important purchase for your studio—without them you are working blind.
I have all the original factory double boxing and packaging for both speakers and grills, down to the manuals and original plastic wrap. Even the boxes are immaculate!
Hugh Robjohns of Sound On Sound said (in discussing monitors he had reviewed over the years) "...very few stand out as exceptionally good. In fact, I can count those models I have reviewed that fall into the 'outstanding' category on the fingers of one hand. My list would include K+H's O300."
These make most home 'hi-fi' speakers sound inferior.
Open to very near offers on $3900. Grills are included.
