I'm very happy with my S8 v2's. ..While I haven't heard those particular Revels, I'm pretty safe in saying that neither speaker sounds twice as good as a speaker that is 1/2 it's price; you're well in the realm of diminishing returns.. Before I'd spend $12,000 on the Revels I'd make darn sure that - when blinded (yes, a blindfold) and with volumes matched perfectly - I can hear ANY difference b/w the two AND that the difference is important in how it would impact my enjoyment of music. You might be surprised to find it''s damn hard to hear ANY difference b/w those two fine speakers.
Also, ..With both speakers you'll need a very large room.
