Looking for opinions on the new CDM9 NT. Had a good A-B comparison of them vs. the CDM7 NT, PSB Silveri, and PSB Goldi. The B&Ws are definitely much sexier looking with a higher WAF (wife acceptance factor). Leaning towards the B&W line. The CDM7 was very nice, but was borderline shrill on some of the female vocals. Didn't hear that on the CDM9 and they were less broken in. Seems to be worth the extra $500.
Have also listened a lot to the NHT and Paradigm Reference line. The Studio 100v2 are the other main contenders.
Newform Research 645s are also intriguing, but score very low on the WAF.
