I just purchased a pair of NHT SB2 for $300.00 from J&R, thinking this has got to be a great deal. Just received them on Tuesday, and man oh man, gorgeous looking speakers. Haven't hook them up yet. Then today, I see that ecost.com is selling the Wharfedale Diamond 8.1 Anniversary Edition for $99.99/pair with no shipping. Damn! Damn! But most likely the NHT will be the better sounding speaker. Still, an insane price!!
