I can't answer the question, as I have not heard them in quite some time either. But I was lost when I heard them, and crestfallen that I could not afford them. Memory, notoriously inacurate, is that they were just fabulous!

the silver signatures were/are great speakers- imaging especially is superb. and, the sig-30's add some bass to that already great performance. plus, they look stunning. at $4500 they'd be a good deal. the tweeter may be a little "bright" for some tastes, IF that's an issue for you. good acoustics, a good cdp, and a good amp help to tame that problem.
except... the latest diamond b&w's are probably better, but
they don't come cheap.

I have the Silver Signature 25's, and in all of these years have only JUST HEARD a speaker that I would be willing to sell mine for, the new B&W diamonds.
I've been looking hard these past few years because, like a car, I just wanted a change. But nothing I heard made me go beyond the 'Those would be nice to have!' to 'I want those speakers!' until I heard the new diamond's.
I actually had someone who knows John Atkinson tell me that if I ever wanted to replace the Silver Sigs to keep them and put them away because they are a classic. He said that John is one of the pickiest people he knows, and when he goes for something, it usually is something very special.
It sounds like you've got a great deal on your hands!!!
