I just bought a pair of KEF R900s for $3000 and wow, what a huge step up from my old Paradigm Studio 100v2s! My only bitch is that, pretty much the day after I bought them, the price dropped another $200. Anyhow, I would certainly recommend these to anyone...\n\nOh, they image SO well, they are BIG speakers, and I've pushed them hard beyond my normal levels. They never sound strained. I'm very impressed. Get 'em while they're hot. Their mids are very nice and somewhat forward compared to my big Paradigms.
