I don't think the Salon 2 and Magico A3 are close in price are they? Aren't they targeted at different audiences? I would have "guessed" that the Salon would outperform Magico's lowest price offering.

The least surprising piece of data was about the Diana Krall track.

Not sure what the price point of the Magico A3 is but the performance of the 'lesser' Revel is the real key here IMO and I suspect that does not come as a surprise to Mr. 'R' .........

I believe the Magico's were originally priced at just below $10k and with the recent price increase now around $11k. I think the Salons are about $21k.

A3s were originally $10K and are now $12.5K.

interesting, so they are more in line with the Studio 2's (my speakers). Would liked to have seen that comparison, not that I'm about to make any changes.

I agree for reasons related to size, weight, etc. and not just because of a price reassignment.

As would I. The Studio 2 has not been a focus in these comparisons.
