Two hypothetical speakers that go for the same price, one sounds a bit better than another, but the former looks boring (looks much cheaper than it is), while the latter is very gorgeous (high-WAF, looks very expensive). In this case, will you be willing to get the good-looking speaker knowing that you're compromising sound quality a little? For what reason primarily (wife acceptance, pride of ownership, easy re-sale, "brightens up" the house, etc.)? *** Note my emphasis of "a little" and "same price", which are important qualifiers. If the difference in sound were night-and-day, then there's no contest which one any sane person would choose.
