Vintage speaker for classical that does it all?

What's a good vintage model for orchestral music? It should have transients, imaging AND tight extended bass. (not to be picky.) I was wondering if a beat-up Klipsch Heresy with an old tube amp would be cost-effective. I considered Celestion 6xx with a subwoofer or even old Cambridge Soundworks Model 6 since I was impressed by their 17s which do some amazing things even though they are obviously compromised in the bass. The large Advents sound a bit slow to me -- used to own a pair. Maybe a KEF model would be most cost-effective. Ref One though now we're getting over a kilobuck which is a lot for moi. What about old DCM Time Windows? They go pretty cheap. I like cj Synthesis but they are very rare and the ported bass can be a little iffy. Just fishing for ideas. I might not buy anything for a while. Thanx!
It's never too late to turn back the clock.
