Perhaps in 2008 or whenever they came out with those speakers but I wonder why they would continue to do double blind tests.

The Salon2 still sounds amazing btw. Just heard them at Axpona again.

I heard the Salon2s again at Axpona, this time in a much better room with better amps (not class D).

Amazing is an understatement - especially the bass. Wow.

With regards to displays, I'd think getting a 75" tv as the main and putting the 55" above it as a secondary source might look good.

Just a thought. Not sure though.

Tough to answer but I'm guessing an F208 driven with a receiver falls in the minority.

It really goes without saying that it's common knowledge - using a separate power amp and other quality...

I also agree that the F208 has some characteristics that more than justify the $1200 street price difference (20% discount).

However, the F206 is still an excellent speaker and depending on the...

You won't regret it. My buddy had those speakers so I'm pretty familiar with them. The Revels are a huge step up.

To save money, you may be able to go with the new Concerta2 for surrounds.

They had the Emersa EMP-1 pre/pro. Looks like they have been busy introducing an entire new line of 'chic' audio gear and a new modular XPA amp.

I like the idea of getting the XMC-1 but I think you should wait until the summer or later. This way, you'll get the XMC-1 with HDMI 2.0 and they'll have another sale then.
