I have Salk speakers, SCSTs. Jim builds amazing speakers. Recognize the WoW are fairly low senstivity. If you want more senstitivity I'd go with Ascend-2. But anything Jim builds is awesome. Of course you could blow the bank and get Jim's Silks...
I almost forgot. A very important consideration is placement. If these will be placed against a wall, I'd go with Wow, it's front ported. The Ascend is not. If you have some flexibility the Ascend 2 would be tempting with the RAAL ribbon tweeter.
thank you and rick240 for your responses. It has been awhile since I shopped for audiophile quality sound components. Since getting married it has been all home theater, surround sound and bland in-ceiling sound. Now I wish to rediscover my sweetspot.
