Ok,\r\n\r\nI spent last weekend auditioning a bunch of speakers, price range approx. at $1K, and am down to these final two. They are at two seperate dealers so I cannot do an immediate A\/B comparison. The one place allows a 30 day no question ask refund while the PSB's don't. I will be running them off of an RX-V1400 and will be in a 12'x15'x8' room that is open to a kitchen that is a little bit longer and a little bit wider. They will be used for both music (me) and tv and movies (mostly wife but also me when she is home). The dilemma is the B&W's are on a special sale tonight only due to the stores annual special sale thingy which brings their price down to my range.\r\n\r\nI had auditioned the Energy C9's which I liked (look cool tool, too) but due to the small room and the rear port, it just isn't feasible. I did not get a chance to go audition the Paradigms due to the distance drive I would have to make. The Dynaudio's were way out of my league just like the Gallo III (sweeeeeet) and the JM Labs. I also auditioned the lower end Meadowlark and Totem.\r\n\r\nAaaaaggghhhh, it's driving me crazy. Yeah, I know, it is what sounds better to my ears but I still need help with opinions.\r\n\r\nGotta admit, this site is great.
