Pio - Your enthusiasm is well justified - You are in good company ... I like these speakers a lot myself - Have a friend who loved my Salon2s but with kids in school couldn't justify the price and opted for the Performa F208 - He gets a nice taste of that Revel room filling magic and still manages tuition payment

Revel is known for a seamless transition between driver frequencies and they don't disappoint on this model - The crossover to the woofers at 270 Hz is a nice spec for any speaker but at this price point is an especially nice touch - I think that is what makes the soundstage present so well

On the back they have a nifty pair of switches to tweak you tweeter and also allow for boundary reinforcement - Fine tuning your tweeters and allowing for basic room acoustic challenges makes a great speaker sound still sound great even if the room has challenges (Way to often a speaker is great in the show room but at home falls flat)

Erick Lichte at Stereophile Magazine gave this model a rave review in it's July 2014 issue - Phrases like "a coherence that I found intoxicating" and "I have never heard a $5000/pair speaker play so loudly, so easily, so musically" ..... the Performa speaker line continues a history of top notch performance for the dollar spent - Check it out if you are interested in his measurements

Anyway let us know who the break in period goes
Revel Salon2 main speakers / Voice2 center / C10 surrounds
McIntosh MX150 Processor / MC601 Amp / MC452 Amp / MC205 Amp / MPC1500 Conditioner
MT10 Turntable with MP100 Phono Amp / Auralic Aries & D100 DAC / Oppo 103 Darbee BluRay / Roku
Epson 6010 Projector with Stewart Grey Hawk
A Tangle of WireWorld Silver & Gold Electra Cables / A pile of GIK acoustic panels
Gibson CF-100E
