Lew, it's been too long since I heard by 800D2's, so I don't recall all of the differences. However, I have one song in particular that I love, and that serves well for hearing differences in equipment. It's Mark Knopfler's "Our Shangri-La" off his Shangri-La CD. I have it in 24 bit, I don't recall the sampling rate. For me, it was hard to hear as separate voices when he sings the chorus in harmony with himself. That was with my 800D2's and ATI 6007 amp, with Bel Canto 2.7 DAC directly feeding the amplifier. The first improvement I heard was when I introduced the ML No. 536 amps: some separation. Next was the No. 523 preamp (DAC -> 523 preamp -> 536 amp): significantly more separation. Lastly I bought the Revel Salon2's: a whole new level of separation to the extent that I hear two very distinct voices. You'll have to excuse my inept description, but the difference is profound and greatly impacts my enjoyment. I loved my 800D2's and listened to them extensively, with glee! But the Revels are my preference between these two.

I enjoy that album which I also have, but just as a red book release. I enjoy pretty much all of Knopfler's music and consider him one of the most thoughtful and tasty artists extent.

I'm sure I'd like the B&Ws, well I did actually! I don't know that the Revels perform on a different level but they are so well suited to my taste and budget that it's hard to see changing them out at this point for anything else I might be able to justify.

Many friends who have Wilson What pupey and Sacha come to my house and go home upset and even troubled in their head, and I'm proud of it. Hi hi hi

Iím not certain by your response if you perceived I was conveying an opinion that the Salon2ís are on a different level as the 800D2ís; if so, please allow me to clarify - I consider them to be peers and not a lot of difference. Either is good enough to satisfy me.

Iíve heard others that were equally splendid: Wilson, Sonus-Faber, Paradigm, Thiel. Frankly, there are a lot of great speakers to choose from. Iíve found the room to be a difference maker more than anything other than speakers. We are fortunate to have two dealers that Iím aware of in SE Michigan who have listening rooms that allow their wares to sing! It tempts me to build a new home so that I might have a similar in-home experience. Iím still thinking that through.

I understood you We're on the same page here. I especially agree about the importance of the room.
