I know this forum is a bit long in the tooth, but if you're considering the Revel Ultima2 series, then this comment from Stereophile says it all, "...the Revel Ultima Salon2 is the best-performing, most natural-sounding full-range loudspeaker I have auditioned in my listening room since I started writing for Stereophile in 1984....While $22,000/pair is a lot of money, the quality of this loudspeaker equals that of others costing up to three times as much. In the Salon2, Kevin Voecks and his team have produced far more than a cosmetic upgrade of the Salon1. They have created a new reference standard in floorstanding loudspeakers that has earned my strongest recommendation." http://www.stereophile.com/content/revel-ultima-salon2-loudspeaker-page-3
I listened to lots of speakers long and hard for many years (NOLA, B&W, Paradigm, Wilson, Dynaudio, among others). To my ears and to my tastes, the Ultima2 Salons were simply the pinnacle. I'm always very hesitant to make absolute statements about speakers because it does come down to personal preference and taste. One thing I will confidently say is that with the Ultima2 Salons you absolutely will not look back.
