Years ago I met an audio advisor who worked at one store. Then he moved to another store and I followed him. At that store they sold Wilson Audio, B&W, JM Labs and Dynaudio. I really found myself spending more and more time in the JM room. I started going to that store in about 2002 or 2003. During that time I went every Sat and spent about 3 to hours just listening to their stuff. After enough times I realized that it was time to upgrade. To me, the JM's were the best they had. I found out that they were making an special edition speaker so I bought that in 2004. It was a mighty fine speaker. Then, a few years later I had the chance to upgrade to the 1027's so I jumped at the chance.
I have heard other speakers since then but to be honest, at the price I paid, there are not too many speakers I would trade mine for. I have heard how great they can sound with really good gear so I really don't feel the need to look any further at this time. I can't say how good the Proacs or KEF's are since I have never heard them. But as I said, I am very happy with what I have and don't see me changing them for a long time.
