If you are going to spend the kind of money these speakers command you must listen to them!!! Expensive doesnt always mean good!!! It is a huge gamble to get any of these and be disappointed with them. Speakers depreciate faster than a VW.
Congrats on a great system, you clearly have put a lot of thought and effort into it. The question and thoughts above are excellent advice. What might seem better on paper may not actually be better once you get them into your own room and system.
I have 207's in a fairly large room and had the opportunity to audition the Blade's in my system. The Blade's were definitely a step up in the midrange and more open, transparent, and detailed - but ultimately I couldn't get the bass balance and imaging in my room to a satisfactory level. No doubt the Blade is a great speaker and technically superior to the 207 series, but as always everything is room and system dependent.
