I definitely don't think we need to spend close to that kind of money for great sounding speakers.
But we all certainly have our own personal reasons for buying what we buy.
And even if we disagree, we can still respect one another.
As far as comparing charts & measurements, I think it's probably not fair to compare 3rd party measurements vs 1st party/ manufacturer measurements.
For example, Revel's own measurements of the Salon2/ Studio 2 is like +/-0.5dB. S&V Magazine measured the Salon2 as +/-1.3dB, while HTM, Stereophile, & Soundstage/NRC measured a little different.
