Default I am using Revel Salon2 speakers now.

And I love them. Kevin Voecks, the head designer from Revel, pre-tested the speakers before sending them over to replace my Wilsons.

While I loved my Wilsons, the height of the Revel's in my theater help make a better image for the back row of my stadium seating (6 inches taller than the front).

The sound is MUCH different than the Wilson. They need more power and have a LOT more bass from the main speakers. I like the way the Wilson's image with the WATT angled up. Kevin thinks I am crazy but he is biased.

What do you guys think of the new, more sleek Revel speakers?

I didn't like them at first, but they quickly grew on me. The smaller footprint is a big plus for many as the older model was quite deep, and thankfully the sound improved with the update!

I haven't had them in my rig yet, but my experience at the last CES was very favorable.
