Has anyone compared these two? I've been looking at a TON of speakers lately. I have no front stage at the moment. I also have a pair of Rocket RS750's & an RSC200 "Bigfoot' center channel on order. I can't get a Rocket audition until maybe after November 2 (will be neat!) With the strike & backlogs, I have a BUNCH of time on my hands to "audition". I FINALLY heard a speaker that "moved me", in my price range. It was the B&W CDM9NT. The dealer actually used my same Yamaha (RX-V1) to drive it. It was WONDERFUL in 2 channel stereo. No hint of brightness at all, incredible midrange, a Nautilus tweeter that almost brought a tear to my eye! I know this sounds LAME, but I've looked at a TON of highly recommended speakers! None have done it for me yet, until these. My local dealer is willing to go $2500 for the pair and the center. Retail is $3,300. I have already auditioned the following without being "moved". Bear in mind, these are my OPINIONS. Your results may vary, void where prohibited, batteries not included, action figure sold seperately. PSB Stratus Silveri Pretty dang good, 4ohm though. BEAUTIFUL piano gloss finish. HIGH WAF! Vienna Acoustics Expensive, but sound pretty decent. Sand anyone? Paradigm Reference Studio 100's BASS & BIG. Powerful. NO WAF, or HAF for that matter. KEF Q Series Didn't impress me. Mirage OM-9's Ditto Atlantic Technology (I forget the #) Ditto Definitive - BP2004 & BP10 NO MAS. Boston VR975 Half $ at Tweeter. No surprise. Klipsch Reference LOUD, but NEVER AGAIN.
