Klipsch Palladium P-17b Bookshelf Speakers

Anybody familiar with these speakers and willing to express an opinion on how they sound?
I have not heard the P-17B's but have heard really good things about them.  A few guys on the Klipsch Forum own them and have expressed very positive opinions about them.  Some have owned many non Klipsch highly regarded speakers and have been pleasantly surprised how they stack up against them.
