I had the Revel Salon on my list in 99, but I went for the 802 Nautilus. I used it for over than 6 years. Since januari this year I use the 800N from B&W. The Revel is a speaker with other properties. It is hard to compare them, because it is a matter of tast. But I think the 800N is a lot better with classical music. I did a lot of listenig with the Revels on classical music, but I didn't like the sound and I missed the involvement. The Nautilus has the potential to play the music in front of you. You can touch the people who are playing. It is more intimate compared to the Revel's. I also find the sound of violins and cello's more natural compared to the Revel's. The Revel's gives you more depth information. It has a more clean sound. I listened with ML gear, but there was 0,0 involvement. It sounds too technical in my opinion.
