Revel - F208 vs M126Be

I’m looking for some input on these two speakers. I know... everyone has a favorite that will better these. But, I am interested in this comparison.

I have F208 and I’m quite happy with them. I’m convinced that stepping up to the F228Be would be a big improvement because there have been so many improvements. But, they cost $10k. Even $7k for a used set. So, it’s major step in cost. It's just not in the budget at this point.

But, I was thinking that maybe the M126Be would be an incremental improvement, without a major difference in cost. I have a REL R528 subwoofer, so I think that would integrate well with the Revels, and give the full bass sound that could be missing from stand mount speakers.  

Anyone have experience with both of these who could comment?

thanks, Christopher!  That's exactly what I was looking for.  I suspect you are right about the dynamics, and the small mid woofer.  

I was thinking about a set of B&W 805's that I once owned.  For a smaller speaker, they are really dynamic.  But, I can see your point, as evidenced by my improvements when I moved up the line to the 803N.

I'll keep an eye out for the release of the F226Be.  Sounds like it may be a good option.
thanks, all for the helpful input.  I agree that I probably wouldn’t be happy with the bookshelf speakers. Go big, or stay home. Haha
