I completely agree and if you can find a dealer in your area who can demo both models for you, I would obviously recommend you to go that route. Not knowing where you live though, I only mentioned Best Buy as it might be more likely you have one near you than a smaller store that carries these speaker brands. Hearing them both (even in a poor demo environment) would still be better than blind buying them or asking strangers which one is a "better" choice on an online forum.

Demoing in the store could be worst than owner or reviewer opinions. It just to hard to do a comparison in the store. You would be better off purchasing the speakers and returning them if you don't like them that way you can at least evaluate them in your own room.

We'll just agree to disagree on this one. I hope your search for speakers is successful though!

Well I guess your position has a lot of merit consider that most reviewers seem to praises every speaker. Having said that, if you've been to Best Buy lately you see that the way they have their speakers set up its extremely difficult to evaluate them. I went there I was trying to listen to some Klipsch towers and bookshelf, if anyone been there you know how bad of a set up they have Klipsch speakers. I had to buy the speakers take them home and listen to them.

Officially part of the B&W group now. Picked up some 805Ds and an HTM4 in Rosenut. Waiting for a pair of 804s to show up on the 2nd hand market and will buy those.

Grabbed an XPA-2 to power the front L and R and XPA 3 for center and backs

This story is getting a lot of traction around the other AV forums - but not so much here. I guess all the B&W owners are ok and standing pat

I am sure the 802 D's are still great, the driver's just don't look as big as they used to. Does any one have any idea if the 800 series will still be manufactured in Britain?

I know that this a speaker thread but since you brought up Rotel I'll bite. Rotel doesn't have any new receivers out with Atmos.

neither does Parasound, as a matter of fact they got away from any surround processors for quite some time now.They do provide HT bypass modes on their preamps and integrated amps.I was just kidding around about Rotel split because of the new owner being from the San Francisco area.
