Why bother, really if you just love them then you should buy them. Go demo some B&W's if you like but the speaker is a very crucial part of your system. IMO it is the toughest part of building your system, it impacts the sonic signiture of your system. Check as many brands as possible to make sure you are making an educated purchase but if your heart leans towards one speaker just get it regardless of brand name.
I know you like, tape for people's approval and stuff, and wave your tapes around like they're your dick...  but even you can't actually think section tapes from philips sound good.
