Re: B&W 800D vs Defintive 7000SC
I liked B&W over DefTech even before the diamond series was out. I had always thought something was up w/ HT mag giving DefTech such high marks in their reviews. I think even today you can still spot the HT mag marks in the DefTech ads.
As far Revel speakers, I never liked them much either. They had a pair at Marvins in Fort Worth that had rear firing mids that added nothing to the overall sound experience. It seemed like the only one who benefitted from it was the guy working on hook-ups behind the speaker. Not to mention they are very over-priced for their performance. The Revel sub was a better performer, but over-priced, and did not go very low.
