NEAR outdoor speakers



I've seen a couple glowing posts about NEAR (Bogen) audio outdoor speakers. Has anyone heard these? And are they audiophile material for music listening outdoors? How do they compare with Niles or B&W? Thank you.

I have heard them at a dealer. They are indeed very good, a bit pricey if that's no object.
I have always used B&W outdoor speakers. I believe for the environment/money that is the way to go for me. Outdoors is not really an "audiophile" setting.

Price is no object. Which do you think sound better?
go ahead and get the NEAR they are probably the best
