.....as with most things in high end audio, cost does jump significantly for improvements. I generally expect to have to spend three times the price for a sizable upgrade (my general rule of purchasing anything) so to me twice isn't bad, but only YOU can decide if they are worth the difference to you and your ears. I lived with the Studio 100's for a long time and they are a very good speaker especially for the money. I have spoken to Andrew several times about the S8's and they sound to be a superb speaker but YMMV.
Listen to them both and see what you think.
