Well I pulled the trigger last night and ordered a pair of 6.1s. Got them in BC because as amazing as the rosewood looks the BC actually goes better with our dark/espresso coffee table and oil rubbed bronze fixtures. Maybe I'll go rosewood when I upgrade my HT.
The free shipping is what sold the wife...that and the pictures some people had posted of them in actual rooms. Now I'm waiting for a confirmation from OZ about the order and hoping to get a clue how long it'll take to ship/arrive.
I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas! Thanks to Jon and Steve and Craigsub and a dozen other of you here who have helped me carve my way through this purchase. I've listened to a bunch of new speakers now. I am feeling good about picking the swans (money back guarntee does help me feel more confident of course)...the Swans are the right size, the right look, the right purpose...and frankly all the B&M stuff I've listened to has either left me cold or cost twice as much.
So viva la Swans! Glad to join the club.
