I listened to some B&W speakers and Dynaudios while visiting "AS". The sound was amazing! Unbelievable imaging by the Danes. The little B&Ws threw a sound that wasn't just amazing for their size but amazing for any speaker. There are only 250 pairs of the those B&W Signature Diamonds in the world. The cabinet is solid marble! They cost as much as the large Danes next to them! After this experience, I can pretty much guarantee McIntosh will be in my future. Also, the Mac turntable looks gorgeous up close. The marketing pictures seen elsewhere do not do it justice.
