Never heard them but I've seen the spins on them and they look pretty good.

I see $7500/pair which is more reasonable. I do not like them for several reasons. The checker board design is pure glitz and totally unnecessary.
They put a waveguide on the tweeter but not the midrange where it is most important. The directionality of the drivers should be matched as closely as possible. No, I have not heard them and do not care to. My analysis is base on a review of the design. I think Golden Ear makes a better speaker in this price range IMHO.
I am one of their dealers. Read the review in Audioholics where they say this is the best speaker they have measured to date.
Frequency response is flat and they are very natural sounding but with lots of detail. The design uses a Kilppel measurement system to optimize output. There are certainly a lot of great speakers in this price range but these are one of the more impressive options.
The only thing that might be more impressive than their speakers is the subwoofers.
Dealers are instructed not to discount. Best bet is to trade something in against them.
Second question, what percentage off of full retail would you consider fair?At this price level the ONLY questions that matter are if they have the sound characteristics that are most important to you personally and if they match well with your existing equipment/room. Everything else is a rounding error, relatively speaking.
mijostyn- Those "checker board" drivers are SB Acoustics woven TeXtreme mid/bass drivers made with an advanced, super thin carbon fiber fabric-
