I am thinking I should do a listen for comparable speakers. Does anyone have a list of comparable speakers to the Paradigm Prestige 85F that I should consider?

I am basically looking to spend about $6500 max for my front speakers(front 3).
I would say that the B&W speaker was the new 702 S2. I was just looking the update my old speaker set-up. I listened to Kef R700, the 702 S2 and the 85F's. I'm going with the 702's with HTM71 center and 2 sets of 707 S2 for sides and back. Just waiting for them the come in.
