I picked gray, because they have less contrast with the wood floors.

I drove 30 miles one way yesterday to the nearest Revel dealer in my area. I was going to audition the F206. I took along a couple of my favorite CDs. The speakers sounded wonderful. I listened to them with Rotel processor and Rotel amplifier. They have a wonderful mid range, and are a beautiful speaker. I also looked at the F208. You get alot more speaker for $1500 more dollars with the 208. Revel has a promotion going where you get 30% off if you know a Ford employee who comes in the store with you and presents there employee badge. My mother and three of my sister's are retired from Fords, but it has to be an active Ford employee. No retirees. I would appreciate it if anyone with the F206 would chime in with there thoughts on the speaker.

I bought mine in January and thoroughly enjoying them. To my ears they sound great top to bottom. There are numerous reviews online and I don't believe that they are an exaggeration.

I bought them without ever listening to them, and to quote me dealer, you'd have to be deaf not to like these speakers.

Since you've had opportunity to listen to them, you're in a great position to decide if you need more bass, as the rest of the speaker is the same. Some have said they like the 206 better than the 208, I'd say it's a matter of to each his own.

There are some authorized dealers on the forum who are a wealth of knowledge.

I would be listening to them in two channel stereo, without a subwoofer at least for the time being. No home theater just for music listening. I am sure a sub would be added if necessary somewhere down the road. There is a pair of gloss black on Audiogon right now in like new condition. The owner is selling them because he wanted more low end and moved up to the 208. He must have gotten a really good discount on them, because he is selling them at a really "fair" price.

I have a sub and usually turn it off for music. I use pure mode on my pre.

Bass is hard to quantify, a lot depends on room size, configuration and musical taste, which I guess you can say about any part of a system.

If you thought the bass was light on the 206, you may want to step up. If you thought it was satisfactory you aren't getting different mids and tweeters so I wouldn't expect any other surprises.
Good luck with your choice. Deals can be found as you see.

Surely one of your family members can get an active Ford employee to help you get that 30% discount. Don't pass on the chance to get F208's at that price. Buy once, cry once!
