I'm currently in the same situation, looking at these speakers for my office. I think I am passing on the Audioengines, but I would like to hear more about the Swans. I have heard the Airmotivs and I thought they were nice, but I want to make sure I get the best speaker for my budget ($500).
Any thoughts on how the MK200III would compare to the Airmotivs? Or anyone else get similar speakers that they could recommend?
