Well, this is disappointing. No winner in the end?
I know that this is an ancient thread, but I thought I'd mention that while the Klipsch RF-7ii now costs about $1750 for a refurbished pair, and the Revel F208s are way more than that, a used pair of JBL LS80 is less than $800 on Amazon at the moment. Made me wonder if I'm looking at the right model.
If it's correct, it makes me think the LS80's are the clear winner for those of us looking for cinema speakers that are "pretty awesome, but at a reasonable price."
But since this is an old thread, are there new developments that indicate the LS80 isn't all that?
