Honest opinions on my two picks of loudspeakers

So I wanted to see what most of you thought or what your pick would be between the Revel Salon 2 towers and the McIntosh XR100's I'm torn between both with looks and performances with my choice leaning more toward Mac since I'd be powering them with the 452 and the whole matching thing, but I will also be pushing these quite hard at times (rock-metal) and I want a well built power capable speaker for the long haul..I was considering Wilson's as well and have not cut them out just wanted some respectable opinions on my two narrowed down choices we all are familiar with pricing and these two options have a considerable difference between the two so I'm torn which is the better bang for my bucks!! 

Thanks all..
I don't know if you care about this factor but the Revels will likely be easier to sell if you decide to change speakers in the future. They are an industry flagship that have received numerous positive reviews. Everybody knows what they are and if a non-millionaire is looking for a Stereophile Class A speaker a used pair of Revels are a no-brainer.
Congratulations on your Klipsch Cornwall 3 buy hope you enjoy them. 

happy listening. 
I just ordered the Cornwall 4's and very much look forward to your review if you would share. Thanks.
I have not kept up with Mac speakers, but having been a customer of a Mac dealer for years, I was never impressed.  Revel seems to be very good.
