Revel Concerta F12 --- still a wise purchase ?

With all the new speaker technology and design of "slimmer, prettier" speakers, are the old fashioned looking rectangular Revel F12's still a wise purchase ? If only the sound of music matters, and the speaker esthetics is not important, is the Revel F12 still one of the best ~$1500 full range floorstanding speakers out there ? I'm interested in your opinions. Thanks.
Check out the Infinity line...they are also Harmon owned and have comparable sound...both are assembled in Mexico and use ceramic drivers...on pure sound grade...the older m20s are a much better product imho....
