I would love to audition them first unfortunately they would be a special order just for me so I won't get the chance. I have to go by the reviews that are out there and so far they seem to be mostly positive. I would definitely get the midnight cherry finish, it looks pretty damn good in pics.

I would NEVER buy a speaker without hearing it first. Especially with the price tag attached to these......
Reviews are subjective. How do you know that the reviewers have the same preferences that you do?
Considering what the competition offers that this price range, auditions are a must. Even if it means a road trip.

I am also not convinced they are superior to the Studio line.
I agree with your opinion on not liking the Prestige line as well as the Studio line. I lost a pair of Studio 100's in a fire, and when shopping for replacements I didn't like the Prestige tweeter at all. My wife had the same reaction when auditioning them. We went with Signature S6s as replacements and they are wonderful. Paired with an SVS SB Ultra 13 and hooked up to a new Parasound Integrated, they sound amazing.

It looks even better in person in my opinion! It is a very nice finish. BUT - on of our board members did get a pair of bookshelves I believe it was, and the finish was hard to discern from piano black. The ones at my local dealer in this finish are clearly distinguishable, and look great. What you end up receiving though? You gotta be able to have an avenue to return them if they are unsatisfactory, especially since you can't audition them. I know special orders can be a sticky wicket.

What he said. Unless you have a generous return policy.
