I need to do some more listening and I spoke with Bob Hodas who is coming to town soon and will tune my Revels. My Wilsons were all dialed in with EQ for my room. The Revels will have that soon too.

In the end - its like "what is better the Porsche or the Ferrari?" How do you answer that? The Ferrari is more sexy. The Porsche doesn't break as often. For me, I am just blessed to be able to have owned them both.
Yes, most definitely both you and kennyt are blessed to listen, own and enjoy this equipment. I`m definitely waiting on the Revels, for all your reviews have been nothing but positive. The Definitives, I`m glad to hear good things about them also kennyt.

I`ve yet to hear these either. Its good to see companys like Revel, Definitive, Paradigm, consistently making great products and addressing the needs of all of us.

Very positive!!

AVRev.com is NOT an audiophile publication. Never was. Never will be. And if anyone sees me wearing a short sleeved polyester dress shirt - shoot first, ask questions later.

AV companies should learn lessons from Howard Schilling at XHi-Fi. He stands there with little desktop speakers at CEDIA in the RCA dome blasting Rush, Zeppelin and Genesis resulting in wooing every installer and Gen Xer in the place. Jazz at the Pawnshop is for geeks and NOBODY listens to classical.

If I ever see you in polyester shirt.

As for Jazz at the Pawnshop, I have it on SACD, and I bet you do too!

OK, but you have Thriller and likely played it on those Salon2's...

Oh the therapy they will need to break that out of them! Black Sabbath We Sold Our Soul over and over at no less than 100dB's for hours on end and they MIGHT forget that sound!

47 million units of Thriller sold.

Steve Lukather on guitar. N'dugu Chandler on drums. Quincy Jones producing and a guest appearance by Eddy Van Halen.

Musically - it doesn't get any better.
