Seriously buy an Antigua or late model Antigua Winds. I have the latter and for the last 6 years Ive been performing on it regularly and it plays in tune with a nice bell tone that spreads and never goes out of adjustment. Works well with my stm Link 6* and Wanne Gaia.

Find a used Yamaha 475. Great horn for the money

+1 on Antigua Winds, even if I don't really play soprano and will probably sell mine (though not to you, Sax&Caps--no offence intended).

I play the Kessler Custom Performance Soprano. This is a $700 horn made in Asia. I've compared myself playing this horn to my playing on the Yanagisawa S901, S902, SC991, SC992, a few Selmer Mark VI's , a Selmer Series III, and a Yamaha Custom 875. I didn't find a significant difference between the horns, though my overall favorites were the S901 and S902. I concluded that for the time being, the Kessler Soprano wasn't holding me back and so I'm sticking with it and I would say that at $700, it is certainly the least expensive soprano worth purchasing!

The first generation of sax.co.uk Sakkusu sopranos ("tick logo" models with black key-pearls), were made in Taiwan and were excellent.
I haven't tried the current model (made in China).

Kessler Soprano or WWBWs Allora Vienna curved or straight Paris series. I have owned both Kessler and Allora curved sopranos (I believe both made in Vietnam by Tenon) and good horns for what you pay for, especially if you find slightly used. In fact, I have just bought another Kessler.
