Ever since I have had them, I've realised they're a bit like Marmite - people love them or hate them, but I have realy liked mine, however, I sold them before christmas to an enthusiast, and I'd like to replace them. Trouble is, I really don't know what to buy. Ideally something similar size as they sit on two plinths, and smaller ones will look a bit odd - distance to the listening position is just under 2m. They worked really well because the dual concentrics allowed you to stand up, sit down, or move around a little with very little change in the sound. I can go to maybe just over two grand (ex VAT) for the pair - but from what I have heard few seem to have the 'big' sound I'm used to. Passive or active is fine, but I'm thinking selling them was stupid, as I'd not noticed everything is now super small.
