How do these speakers compare? Will be using them for music and movies with a dedicated subwoofer

They will both sound great.

I would get the Revel since it has more pedigree being related to the $22,000 Revel Salon2 and $70,000 JBL Everest, plus all that research from Harman International's Floyd Toole and Sean Olive. biggrin.gif

The Revel will have a better resale value.

Only a little familiar with that Revel model so take this with a grain of salt (as you should with all internet reviews):

The Revels are probably fairly neutral.

The Energys are "warm", ie, some mid- and upper-bass emphasis.

This of course will be at least in part room and placement dependent, but I would expect it to hold true as a generalization.

Which you prefer is, well, up to you. Both should be pretty good speakers, just with a somewhat different character.
