I've heard both speakers relatively recently but in different rooms and with
different electronics. So take my comparison with a grain of salt.
The Revels were driven by Mark Levinson electronics, while the Vivids by
Naim. The Revels had somewhat harsh highs and the midrange was a bit thin,
but overall they sounded huge and powerful. The Vivid were much more
refine and sophisticated (fuller midrange and nice silky highs), their bass was
decent but could certainly not compete with what the Revels put out.
