That's quite the audition list. Sandy can be proud of the T-Ref since some on your audition list sell for $10,000 - $20,000.
Where do you live that had a Sonus Fabre, Triangle, Paradigm, B&W, Focal, Spendor, KEF, Revel and Totem dealers with stocked show rooms?
Must be audio heaven.
I'm in San Francisco Bay Area and the whole audition process took a couple of months! Money no object, the absolute best performers for me were the B&W 802 D3 and T Reference. I considered the Sonus Faber Venere S too for its performance price ratio. The Triangle Signature Delta and Paradigm Persona were good but a bit too bright for my taste. I really wanted to listen to the PSB Image T3, but couldn't find a demo anywhere and its rear big ports probably won't work well in my medium-sized listening area anyway.
