Having experienced the final transition to a Beryllholic, for my bedroom system I purchased a pair of almost mint NS-1000X from HifiDo (their packaging is absolutely great). Got them last Friday. I was desperately looking for suitable stands. Found a cheap and sonically superior solution in our local homestore. Made from compressed Bamboo they are very stable and do not add any coloration to the sound. And yes, the NS-2000 are better speakers.
