Emmett: I am really curious to know about the electronics that were used when you listned to the 7Bs. I've heard them sound different with varying electronics, with the highest quality yielding the best. Room acoustics are an issue as well. I recall listening to 6s once, and they sounded tinny. I had to tell the sales guy! Another came in, made some new connections... viola proper sound, but not my preference. I gotta tell you what one guy told me: If I was gonna put more money into my system get the 10T, as it was Aerials top of the line, price no object sorta speaker vs those below it designed to fit within price brackets. Know what I think he's right. The 10Ts sound great. Just too bulky for me.
