Some of those are also not very pleasing to the eye (my eye anyway).

I was thinking the same thing - they seem to get uglier as the price goes up.

Conclusion: I'm not going to buy.

(There are other reasons also, like: I'm not in the oil business).

Most would not remotely work in my room. Two that caught my eye that would are the Genesis Dragon and the Kharma Enigma. I know I would want a sub with the Enigma. However, I would not be interested in either speaker or swap my Alexx/Thor. But really excellent article just to see what's out there.
